The best time of my life.

Pay Parade.
Pay parade the day of waving hands and stamping feet with the officer on parade sits there with his arms resting on the table, looking a bit like an Egyptian Phoenix. He is there as the paymaster of the great provider of this generous handout of fifteen shillings less barrack-room damage per week. This bumptious extravagance was just about enough cash for a couple of short trips to the N.A.F.F.I.
The officers miserable pay clerk sat there a minor copy of Mr. Scrooge. His contribution to the war effort at the time was to call the name and read out the details of the pay. A further list gave the details of reductions for barrack-room damages. Barely looks up and points one of his scrawny fingers at the place to sign for this generous handout.
A disappointed young soldier looks down picks up the pay less the barrack room damages and his AB.64.
His saluting of the officer barely makes the grade, that horrible sergeant stands there with his red sash band draped around his shoulder eyeing the lad up and down, then bust into the usual remarks to impress the officer.
The end of the pay parade had come, off goes the under-paid soldier with the rest of his new buddies to the N.A.A.F.I for the rock cake and tea and the special treat of a bar of chocolate. An added bonus to the daily visit was just to sit there and eye up his favourite N.A.F.F.Y girl. Bravado reigned! He with the other young ones highlighted the finer aspects of the ladies, their discussion usually fell flat for him when one of them would remark, Shes old enough to be your mother; she is at least twenty-five." Balls to them! Then looks at his wad and tea and wanders off and thinks, "She may be old enough to be his mother, but what a mother!"
Happy days,William.
