Where were you for the last one? Royal Wedding '81.

My lot had just arrived in Falling-Borstal & MOD, tight as they are, refused to allow us a day off as we were booked on the ranges @ Sennelager so it was range stew & stewed brew for us while everyone else (the entire country) celebrated.

BTW: At around the time of the Wedding I recall a strange omen; the place went cold & dark in much the same manner as occurrs during an eclipse. It struck me as very strange...
