Tonight, somewhere in a slightly shambolic afterlife…
McGarry has a cell waiting for Gadaffi.
 
Pte McAuslan, looking like the inspiration for Tracey Emin’s latest installation, ‘Fly Tip’, is explaining to Fraser and Daft Bob that it wis the British that blitzed ra man, so it wis, no kiddin’ – put the hems to him.
 
The MO has so far forgotten himself as to be standing a celebratory round in the Mess.
 
Elsewhere, the pipe-sergeant, rapt by inspiration, is composing a new march in celebration.
 
The Padre is wincing as he hears Captain Errol drawl to Young Dand, ‘Pity, really. Died just as the Buddoos were getting him to hospital. Rather convenient…’.
 
The Adjutant has just told the Colonel of Dand’s suggestion.
 
The Colonel smiles like a eupeptic vulture. ‘A fly young man, Dand MacNeill. Captain Errol has nothing on him. A very warm man, Young Dand.’
 
The Colonel muses, then nods. ‘Very well, Michael: it shall be as Lt MacNeill proposes. Let McGarry know: Wee Wullie to share a cell with Colonel Gadaffi, and we’ll detail McAuslan as Gadaffi’s batman.’

I don't think the arrangement's all that fair on Wee Wullie, myself.

composing a new march in celebration.

Which sounded like the Black Bear...?

All of pipey's tunes sound like that.

And perhaps you're right abt the unfairness to Wee Wullie.

Re: All of pipey's tunes sound like that.

I'm sure there was another tune that they sounded like, as well, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was - and I lent my copy to a friend who appears to have lit out for New Zealand under a cloud, so I can't check.

(Admittedly, I have a copy of one of Marcus Borg's ghastly books on the historical Jesus he lent me, but I don't consider that to be a fair exchange).
