After a verbal argument with a Chinese killick cook on the Manxman over a spoonful of peas the skipper thought I was worthy of an early Chrimbo holiday in December '64 so he sent me to Stonecutters island for a 28 day break.The top WO was a gentleman and gave us an easy ride over the Chrimbo period but the army sergeant who was browned off as he had pulled a duty on my internment day decided he'd give this long haired matelot an army style haircut. he'd obviously never cut hair before and delighted in making an abortion of mine, I didn't give him the satisfaction of thinking I cared which got right up his nose, and he was well mad when the WO saw what he'd done and rollocked him for making a show of the army to another branch of the armed services. I' just finished a two year stint out the Far East and took great delight in telling the bolshy sergeant I was going back to the UK in a couple of days
