Three Stories

You suggested that we talk about some funny stories in the army well let me get the Ball rolling... this after I've been racking my brains to remember anything remotely funny in a war zone and I came up with 3 stories in all my time... LOL

1) one night preparing for ambush we where approached by an Elephant family, we were instructed to stand our ground and scream and wave our arms, ja right you try that when the Big Bull comes charging..... so we drop everything and run like hell climbing trees.... this Bull and his family didn't leave until sunrise , we spent the whole night in the trees.... glad they didn't rummage through our ammo & stuff , it could have done some serious damage. We worked it out that we where directly across their usual path they walked.

2) On patrol one day where picked up a "spoor" the famous Sarg-stripes... so we started doing the figure 8 routine and spreading out.... after some time we seemed to be back at the same spot that we had started from.... Eish.... eventually after some more round and round we realized we where tacking one of our Brothers that had injured his one foot so he was wearing a veldskoon that by coincidence had the Sarg-stripes...

3) another night lying in ambush we hear the rustling of tree-leaves coming close and closer.... 1st guy from lying position sits straight up (like Frankenstein when he awakes) , in a loud wisper (daars a fokken groot slang) needless to say the rest of us followed his movement, 10 manne sitting still and and 90 degrees.... this bugger was the length of 10 manne ... next morning we found him not far from our position, python that had eaten a small buck...
