Transcript for 'London to Egypt':

First of all I was in Ack-Ack command for four years. But when the war in Europe finished we were spare bods, so they sent us out to Egypt when I was waiting to be demobbed. And I thought why send me to Egypt when I am just going to be de-mobbed? But I waited another year before I was demobbed.
