Tonight, whilst out on the lash with another ex squaddie mate of mine, he mentioned that Gen Sir Peter DLB had once been a Private in an infantry Regt. B0llocks says I. Although I have the absolute utmost respect for the mans career, knowing about his "them" service, MC, Malaya, Oman etc, etc, I did not beleive he had been a buck fcuk in the grunts. Due to the wonders of modern technology I was able to Google it in the boozer on my phone and find out (to the cost of 2 double JD's for being wrong) that my cnut of a mate was actually right. Private in the KSLI in 1952. Extra Kudos to the man. This really did catch me by surprise. Just wondered what other seemingly Tall Tales about our Mil that other members have heard have actually turned out to be proven true?
