The Great Escape

It reminds me of when I was in DQs. Big Tiny the Marine sergeant major called out my cell number and I doubled over to him, stood to attention and said "Sir."
He said "Have you any brothers in the Navy?"
"No Sir."
"In the Marines?"
"No Sir"
"Any relations at all in the Navy?"
"No Sir."
"In the Marines?"
"No Sir."
"Aren't we ******* lucky. Get doubling."
 
I hope you're going to write up all this Ken... it reads really well and is very evocative (having NOT been there)... I could just feel the snow under my feet in your earlier memories of Nozzerland... :smile: ...and all that scran... no wonder Nutty likes his scran so much! :wink: :lol:
