Remember Germany in the fifties. Snow from October through until March. When AL3 froze outside the Guardroom,the Sqn duty crews were called out to start the tanks every 20 minutes, to ensure that they did not freeze up. What a joy. When on execercise : no sleeping bags only the 4 blankets we had on our beds in the barracks. All we had on our feet were ammo boots or wellingtons, tank suits on top all finished off by those yellow gauntlets (they were useless when wet) . We managed, we had no other options. Compo seemed to consist mainly of Mutton Jock or Instant Typhoid. Although we did have the joy of tinned bacon and Oatmeal blocks. Also lemonade powder that was good for bleaching your schreńŹdies or your socks. Bring back ""the good OLD DAYS "". Who's Kidding Who. SNOW WHAT SNOW.
