Soldier boy.

Soldier boy.

#LISSEN
I wish I was a soldier
driving in my truck
I’d drive all day – no time to play
but I don’t give a damn!

#LISSEN. I wish I was a sailor boy . . .

I wish I was a sailor boy
sailing out to sea.
Oh. No I don’t
it’s bloody cold.
Oh deary, deary me.

Here we see young Andy carrying a rope tension snare drum for his very first gig with Penicuik Pipe Band circa 1953. They don’t make them like that any more. I am talking about the drum but it could apply to Andy as well!

Young recruits to Kings Own Scottish Borderers. Berwick upon Tweed, Scotland May 1955. Training for active service in the Far East. Where are they now?
I was seated, second from left, front row and am now sitting on my arse in Staffordshire, England, but somehow wandering back down memory lane. (Shakes memories away and takes dog out for healthy walk). “Carry on”.
