wardmaster said:Reminds me of when I was a POMA at Ganges assisting a certain Surgeon Commander with new entry medicals in the Annexe. The poor little blighters had to stand before the MO with just a towel around them and I would say "drop the towel, turn your head and eyes to the right and cough!" For some, this was too many things at once and they became confused. Anyroadup, one day the MO says to me "tell me PO, why do we get them to drop the towel?" Somewhat bemused, I replied that it was so that we could check for un-descended testes. "No, no, no" he said."It's so that we can make sure that they haven't sent their sister instead of them!" Those were the days.
