Ah yes - old Phileas Winthrup of the 15th Goat and Swung Testicle Regiment. I remember him well - poor fella - he was caught by the Gonads in Ethiopia. A nasty race the Gonads - a bit like the Fuzzy Wuzzy's but from a little further down. He escaped in his pith helmet after disguising himself as a turtle .
He was given a thorough dressing down by the Sergeant Major when he returned to barracks. He was charged with insulting the Queens portrait by chewing lettuce in it's precence.
I well remember his demob party in the NAAFI. We all dressed up as candlesticks and set fire to our hair. What a wizard wheeze. He's never taken off his pith helmet ever since.
But of course I was very very very drunk.......ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.............................
