Many years ago serving on Eagle in the far east, looking forward to getting home in time for Christmas, the conversation turned to presents. All was fairly normal except for one NAM(O) (who must remain nameless), turns out that he had bought what he described as the perfect girt for his granny, a Cheongsam and a flick knife.
Any other weird presents either given or received?

Cos they know you look just so hot in Y fronts and a string vest OK, live with it.

Whilst serving on Leeds Castle a couple of years ago the LSTD done his 6 months and extended for another 6. He got to fly home during the christmas period and bought his wifes gifts in chile. She is now the proud owner of a soup terrine. I am sure she was impressed.

You mean like a tureen? the bowl thingie for soup?

I must admit that I'd rather know how to make a terrine than how to make the dish it's made in.

The most unusual and weird Chrissie prezzie would be a Bonus for serving personnel - especially when you see what the w*n*e*rs in the city are getting! And don't forget how our Booties got seen off!
