Maybe this helps Les.maybe just before your time.

Army Beds
Everyone who was in the Army very quickly became used to the idea that we were not there to enjoy our rest. Far from it, from the first night in Gibralter Barracks at Bury St.Edmunds, which must have been built for the stalwart Victorians of circa Crimea et al,to the last night before demobilisation, many and varied were the sleeping arrangements offered to the unsuspecting recruits. No longer would we relish in laundered sheets with a cosy eiderdown - this was long before we found the benefits of the duvets of Continental Europe, but rather we were introduced to the sleeping "biscuits" which one victim once described these as being 3'o" x 3'o" squares of indeterminate cloth stuffed with dehydrated "monkey muck". He was not too far from the truth with that description .
We had 3 of these which we could stack up when we needed more room we did a bit of sleeping in different places in Ismailia mainly on concrete floors.
Those where the days.
Cheers William
