Halt! Who Goes There?

Daily Timewaster has a post that brought back a 50+ year old memory.

Our Engineer company was bivouacked in some trees near Wildflicken, Germany. As normal, having pissed off one of the NCOs, I was walking guard on a dark night.

Hearing noise on the perimeter I turned on my flashlight while calling out,

"Halt! Who goes there".

The light revealed the intruder.
Abandoning my post, I climbed up the nearest truck.
