SAS boys put me right in my place

There are memories of our military history and memories of my Dad L tiffany’s en and Anzac Day as a kid in Eudlo.There are also memories of a couple of lessons learnt as a teenager.I was a 19 year old and living in Perth, playing rugby league for the Mossman Cottesloe Tigers and having a grand old time away from home for a year.I was living just up the road from the Swanbourne Barracks basically at that t tiffany’s ime the home of the SAS and there were a lot of the guys in the footy club.Keep in mind it was the 1970s, so some of the older guys had been to Vietnam on a couple of tours.These guys had seen stuff and done stuff that mugs like me only see on the movies, so their tolerance level for idiots was pretty low.Lesson No.1 started at the pub, when one of them asked if I wanted to go diving for lobsters.I quickly agreed and he then asked me if I had ever dived at night with a tank.I told him I had, so a date was set midnight Sunday.I left out the fact that snorkelling at Alex Bluff in the middle of the day was vastly different than diving at night.So they picked me up, detoured to the barracks to b tiffany’s orrow the gear (the reason for going out at midnight) and off we went.I didn’t even know how to put the gear on but after a few more lies I got kitted up and off we went, torches in hand, in a three metre swell.All I remember was seeing old mate’s flippers disappear in front of me out in the middle of the shipping channel.I came to the surface and swam in and waited for them to come back. tiffany’s About 40 minutes later they turned up with a bag full. There were more lies from me and off we went home.When we got back one of them handed me the bag with about 50 lobsters in it said, “Here, go and clean these and while you aredoing it make sure you remember that bullstting will get you nowhere, and it could even get you or your mates killed.
