The Norwegian Kannonier.

Post by Ragnar » Mon Jan 12, 2009 12:19 pm

We were, as every January, on Winter Bivouac.

A small place called Möckern, which, although small, saw one of the MAJOR battles in Napoleons defeat.

The place is a park, with a traditional German "town castle" and surrounded by a maze of water ways, all about a meter deep.

WE are camped in the middle. To get to the toilets, in the castle, you must negotiate this maze.

We have a certain Sergeant from Norway who likes his drink, to say the least. We are sitting there at 03:00, and Magnar (Yes! Embarrassing every one shouts M/Ragnar, and we BOTH answer.) is nowher to be seen.

"Where is Magnar?" THEN, from somewhere comes this VERY quiet "Help....help....ahhhhh hellloooo HELP!".

At once we send out search parties., so the whole ten of us end up at one of the bridges.

THERE, lo and behold, standing iup to his kneck in ice and water is Magnar.

"Whatchyoo doin' Magnar?" shouts the Lieutenatnt.

At which point Magnar stands to as much attention as his situation allows, and replys, "At the moment I suspect I am F**K**g drowning....SIR!"

This did NOT help his situation as to the possibility of rescue WHAT so ever, as we all decided promptly to roll in the snow grasping our stomachs in spasmodic fits of uncontrolable hysterical laughter.

We EVENTUALLY pulled him out and sat him by the camp fire.

THEN, after an hour, we notice that Magnars Greatcoat is smoking, ahhhh..... "slightly".

We have another beer, then it is SMOKING ever so more "slightly".

"Ahhh...Magnar....about your coat like...."

"Vad?" (He IS Norwegian after all).

"Ahhhh Magnar your Great coat is on fire".

"I don't care it's f*****g WARMMMMMMM!"

This coat is NOW in the regimental museum and is missing the WHOLE back!

That's awesome, Ragnar!

Brilliant!

At least he got warm, right?

You've got to post a pic of this jacket! I'd love to see it.
