Bet many a good 'run ashore' as it were, from BAOR Suqaddies at the weekend must have been 'cutomers' way back in the day.
Many a young, wet behind the ears 18 or 19 years olds were possibly 'broken in', and received their money back as freebie, in sympathy, for showing them the 'ways of the world' and the delights of the female variety, along with the local Amstedam boozers.
Honest, I never got that far...................
