Despite acts of great heroism, three British soldiers returned from the Falkland Islands without being decorated. The captain called them into his office to explain. "Bit of a cock-up in the medals department, chaps," he said, "so the regiment has decided to give you ten pounds sterling for each inch of measurement between any two parts of your bodies. Private, which measurement for you?" "Tip of me toes to the top of me head, sah!" "That's 720 pounds. Well done, private. Corporal?" "Tip of one hand to the tip of the other, me arms outstretched, sah!" The captain took the measurement. "Six feet, two inches....740 pounds. Very good, corporal. Sergeant, how about you?" "Tip of me prick to me balls, sah!" "Very well. Drop your trousers, then." The captain put his tape measure at one end of the man's penis, then looked up and asked, "Where are your balls, Sergeant?" "Goose Green, Falklands, sah!"
