After 12 months roughing it in the tent lines, we were upgraded to a billet . What a relief to get away from the sand. Summer working hours were 7am to 1pm. winter 8am to 2pm Breakfast normally comprised asking a mate to bring back a mug of tea from the mess plus a sausage sarnie or something. gave you an extra half hour in bed. Normally those for work formed up outside the billet and were marched down to PSCO offices by a corporal or SAC. Unless like me, you had a bike. I had put my name down for the one that Johnny Martin had and it transferred to me on his departure home. A bike gave you a lot of freedom including biking to work each day. Soon as dinner was finished we upped and out for cricket or football or whatever just like in `mad dogs and englishmen`.
