Albert's favourite tale about serving in Palestine was that when he, and his comrades, went swimming in the sea, they had to keep their boots on or the locals would pinch them!!It was pointed out to him that rather than trying to swim in heavy army boots,they could have taken turns guarding them for a while, so they could have enjoyed their swim in comfort. Albert would give you a look,and inform you "they were real men".
