Now, most of us have probably been promoted at one point or another. Years ago I remember the bar being opened immediately after the promotion board was released. Now it seems to be slipping later and later in the day, if at all. What happened to celebrate or commiserate? I remember getting promoted from Cpl to Sgt. Best promotion drinks ever! 2 Pints in the Sgtsâ Mess then into the pigs bar in Bielefeld. 3 traffic lights and a yard later and it good night from me. I swear that the whole episode lasted less that an hour. It made a bloody mess of my quilt and girlfriendâs (now wife) back coming back up later. Thatâs how it should be done. Best promotion drinks ever? I think so!!!
