UNCOMPASSIONATE LEAVE

Officer to squad sergeant - 'Ah Sgt Brown - have

just received a telegramme concerning recruit Smith's

mother who has recently passed away - please tell

the chap to take 2 weeks compassionate leave.'

'SIRRRRRRRR - SQUAD - SQUAD - SHUN - Smith

TAKE A FORTNIGHT'S COMPASSIONATE LEAVE

YER FATHER'S JUST KICKED THE BUCKET

 - NOW DOUBLE AWAY SMARTLY - EFT -

 - ITE - EFFFT - AND SWING THOSE ARMS.'

 

A month on and a similar parade ground scene -

Ah Sgt Brown - more bad news about Pte Smith

I'm afraid - this time his mother's died - please

let him go for 2 weeks as was the earlier case-

and Sgt Brown - try to do it nicely this time I think

Pte Smith was quite upset the way you spoke to

him before - Sir I'll use my best charm this time -

'PARADE, PARADE, SHUN - ALL THOSE WITH FATHERS

ONE PACE FORWARD MARCH - SMITH WHERE THE

HELL D'YER THINK YOU'RE GOING - NOW DOUBLE AWAY'
