‘They’re Taking Over . . .’
The first thing we were told when we got to a different country: ‘You are an
ambassador for your country, and while you’re here you will abide by their rules
and regulations and their laws’. And we had to. And if you got into trouble in any
way, your husband was up in front of the CO, you know what I mean, and he was
dressed down on your behalf, you know what I mean? You just dare not . . . Everybody kept their noses clean, and treated the country we were in, and the
people, with respect. We daren’t do anything different. We wouldn’t have dreamed
of insulting them, or, you know what I mean? We would have just been courteous.
