Boots & Bullsh*t

On a lighter note

However, the tables turned for Sgt. Vin’ Soni. We were walking across the training area with the Company Commander when he picked up from the heather an expensive looking cigarette lighter…click, click….click, click….click, click….the lighter failed to light so the OC tossed it to me. Click, click….click, click….click, click …..the lighter failed again and, losing patience, I tossed it over to Vin’. Click, click…. Click, click….click, click. Finally Vin’ put the lighter to his nose to smell if there was any gas in it……and a bloody great big 4” flame shot up his nostril. Laughing all the way, we took our ‘Medic’ to hospital.
