for cutting up meat and so forth.

The toothbrush, that came in handy
for cleaning buttons.

# · 13:10.66013:13.740

But one of the peculiarities
about the Army was that,

# · 13:13.74013:16.530

though it was a crime
to have dirty buttons,

# · 13:16.53013:19.280

you were never issued
with the materials to clean

# · 13:19.28013:21.490

the buttons,
you had to buy them yourself.

# · 13:21.49013:24.120

We were awakened by the bugle,
which sounded Reveille.

# · 13:24.12013:28.120

Wash, shave, pack your bed up
and pack your kit.

# · 13:28.12013:31.070

About half past six, and you would
have an hour, PT before breakfast.

# · 13:31.07013:35.530

Press-ups and physical exercises,
arms upward stretch.

# · 13:35.53013:39.950

They knew you were fresh
and they tried to take it by stages,

# · 13:39.95013:43.570

there wasn't any bullying
or anything like that.

# · 13:43.57013:46.490

Breakfast consisted
of bread, butter,

# · 13:46.49013:50.370

one rasher of
Lance Corporal Bacon.

# · 13:50.37013:53.530

It was streaky bacon,
it had one stripe in it.

# · 13:53.53013:56.370

Well, there was jam and
they seemed to make nothing

# · 13:56.37013:59.030

but plum and apple, you know?

# · 13:59.03014:01.120

If you got any other kind,
it was a celebration event.

# · 14:01.12014:04.410

There were the Bruce Bairnsfather
cartoons depicting that,

# · 14:06.12014:09.160

handing him a tin of plum
and apple jam.

# · 14:09.16014:11.490

"When the 'ell is it
going to be strawberry?"

# · 14:11.49014:13.530

It was wonderful, that jam.

# · 14:13.53014:15.490

Tickler's, the jam manufacturers,

# · 14:15.49014:19.030

they must have made millions of tins
of P&A, plum and apple.

# · 14:19.03014:23.320

# Oh, oh, oh, it's a lovely war

# · 14:23.32014:27.120

# What do we want with eggs and ham

# · 14:27.12014:29.910

# When we've got bags
of Tickler's Jam? #

# · 14:29.91014:33.490

And then it would be parade time
and the Sergeant would take over

# · 14:33.49014:37.280

and you'd have a whole morning
of marching

# · 14:37.28014:40.370

and you would learn all commands,

# · 14:40.37014:42.870

such as "about turn"
and all that sort of thing.

# · 14:42.87014:46.070

Having been in the Boy Scouts,
it was dead easy to me.

# · 14:46.07014:49.820

When you get the order
"right dress",

# · 14:49.82014:52.120

you turn your head only,
to the right.

# · 14:52.12014:54.950

Some of them managed to turn left,

# · 14:54.95014:57.200

which didn't exactly please
the drill Sergeant.

# · 14:57.20015:00.370

We were all youngsters,
we'd come from

# · 15:00.37015:02.490

fairly sheltered lives and so forth.

# · 15:02.49015:05.120

This Sergeant of ours
was the loudmouth shouting type.

# · 15:05.12015:09.490

Coming up against
military discipline was a shock,

# · 15:09.49015:14.450

being chased around from pillar
to post by disciplinarian NCOs.

# · 15:14.45015:18.780

Some of the sergeants were shockers.

# · 15:18.78015:21.030

They would cause a lot of trouble
if you were out of step

# · 15:21.03015:24.280

or if you didn't keep time,
or if you didn't handle

# · 15:24.28015:27.200

your rifle properly.

# · 15:27.20015:29.070

They were always having a go at you.

# · 15:29.07015:31.490

Most of them were all right,
the shouting meant nothing,

# · 15:31.49015:33.780

but some of them never lost it.

# · 15:33.78015:35.820

One night I'd gone to bed and
this pot was brought round to my bed

# · 15:35.82015:40.780

and they said,
"Oh, you want to do a piss?"

# · 15:40.78015:43.950
