Yo Ho Ho.

So what was Christmas Nineteen Ninety Whatever like?

Well we were the Quick Reaction Force for the day. Ready at a moments notice to deploy to wherever, to do whatever to whomever.

We drew our weapons from the armoury and retired to the building we'd be housed in for the duration.

Awaiting us was several tea bombs of Gunfire - apparently not everyone had partaken of the tradition.

It was probably a good job that nothing happened on that day that required a quick response. Despite my earlier reservations several mugs of gunfire disappeared throughout the morning.

You might think that a Christmas day at work, away from family would be depressing. You'd be wrong.

We had a laugh. We'd decided on Secret Santa a few weeks before. Santa had decided that a copy of Razzle was in order - perhaps not quite what mother might have bought but it's the thought that counts.

We ate together, watched the Queen's speech together and then some crap movie that I can't remember. It could have been crap but I was amongst my mates and we all enjoyed it.

Little did I know what was in store for me. In 48 hours I was to meet the future Mrs Soldier........
