Couple more short bits of my Dad's younger days. When he was in the RCAF in Africa working at the radar station, the men used to climb the radar tower to pee from; a contest to see who could pee the farthest. Or so the story goes!
Also, when the cook used to bake bread the dough would be filled with flies, and the bread would bake like that. Rather than picking out the flies and losing a good portion of the bread, they used to pretend that it was raisin bread. After all, the bread was baked & any fly germs would have been destroyed by the heat. Or so the story goes!
