I remember someone wanging a MILAN praccy round into a flock of sheep on the ranges waaaay back. Bits of the bleating fcukers everywhere. Took out two of em. The others legged it & then stood looking back at their oppos wondering what the fcuk happened.
I did hear a dit about an MFC wallah dropping some 81mm into a pile of sheep during lamb season who had wandered onto the ranges somewhere darn sarf....the RO cleared them to go pick up the best bits for dinner. Allegedly.
Many many moons ago on a range down on the North bank of the Thames, the local farmer would drive his old Ewes onto the ranges just before we were due down. He knew he would get compensation for any animal shoot, and we knew we would get mutton stew that night.
I remember in the very early 70's, we had to put guys out in boats to warn shipping
that the crazy bleeps were being let loose with LMG's. They should have been positioned
1. Three miles from the entry to the Estuary.
see, everybody knows most bleepy types are crap with 'Bang Sticks'
Driving home one night, an oncoming vehicle flashed his brights at me. Having the Emperor Mong as a passenger, I merely flashed him right back and gave him the finger as we passed. Couple of seconds later, at 50mph, I went through a herd of sheep standing in the middle of the road. Ate mutton for a couple of days after that but the damage to the car cost me a bit more than I'd have liked.
