Map of Cyprus

from the A&SH tray..........
Dhekelia, Cyprus, unarmed combat with fixed bayonets. The platoon Sergeant was 'demonstrating'. A young Jock didn't want to attack the Sergeant.
'Come on laddie, come at me!'
'Ah dinnae want tae dae that Sergeant.'
'Come on laddie, come at me, and that's an order!'
'Fair enough, Sergeant.'
In-out-on-guard! Splat, one rather large slash in the Sergeant's side! - gonnae no dae that?
