Still here Brum, trying to keep out of the Sun!! Back to reality on Thursday (for a few weeks, anyway)!! Gordon seems to have let the promotion to FM go to his head, haven't seen him since he commandeered a Chateau in the Dordogne.

We used to 'shut up shop' and return to camp during the summer heat when I was in Cyprus, used to start work early 6 am first works, breakfast ferried to work stations around Nicosia and quit about 12.30pm - unless we had to do a patrol - was that the case in your time Shelldrake.

'Fraid not Len, we started work at 0800hrs until 1630hrs with half an hour for NAAFI break and an hour for Lunch. Same hours in Belize, I think that the powers that be were working on the premise that being Gunners, the Devil finds work for empty hands etc. They were probably right!! drunken drunken drunken

Steve and I are stuck in a minefield marked on maps as the history of BAOR 1945-1950

Incidentally what has happened to FM Gordon's promotion? Have MOD treasury auditors demanded a recount of his postings? I thought promotion to FM was an appointment for life. He appears to have been demoted in less than a week

Could be that he "Reverted to the rank of Gen, at his own request", JPW. Maybe he still wants to be "One of the lads", too bloody late now, he made his bed,etc............. Laughing Laughing
