    Back in 82 when I was unpacked at Bn in Munster we soon learnt the art of sports afternoons. Being an Airportable Bn having LPCs as transport we were on sports every afternoon. I suspect it allowed the SNCOs to steal our kit whilst we were out. Not being a sporty type I had no organised sport so Beasting by company was threatened, hint taken 20Dm down the sock and a jog up to Hiltrup Lake to drink and watch the Boxhead nude sunbathers was in order!
    Unfortunately the Op Banner the following year put an end to that and the New CO thought we should be training, never asked us though. We had a Canadian Pln Cdr who tried to get us to ice skate even laid on wheels to the rink, problem was hire skates or drink beer? Skate hire ate into beer tokens so little skating was ever done by the lads!
  5. Funny how this has croped up.
    sports afternoon? what is that? i haven't had a sports afternoon in years. but i have just had an early knock off today.
  6. I used to sign out for under-water exercise. No phones could reach me there!
