Yes-- a great place to go to write poetry. Very friendly and pretty Scottish
girls-- some spoke Gaelic-- but no opportunities. One pub on the whole
island chain, open from 4PM to 6PM by law. One paved road running
north-south through islands (North Uist, Benbecula, & South Uist), and only
one tree-- that one was planted by the RAF because they couldn't stand not
having a tree on the whole three-island chain.

We were too busy launching missiles out into the North Atlantic to be bored.
The worst part of it was the British Army mess hall--- mutton, mutton,
mutton. Blechhhh.

Outer Hebrides?
Sounds like great duty for guys our (current) age.  Bucolic.

Must have bored the poo out of a young soldier.  Any chicks?

Re: your note on the M-14:
"The M-14 certainly fires a more powerful 7.62mm NATO cartridge and it is so
rugged that if you ever run out of ammo, you can just beat the SOB to death
with it."

Yeah, well said.  Mounts a bayonet, too.  A more satisfying weapon, all the
way around! Russ, #1226B
