Shortly before I PVR'd, Brize made OO and SDO a combined duty. Late night phone call passed to me as being from the Duty Desk Officer at the *** newspaper. (NO significance to number of asterisks!) "Station Duty Officer, how can I help?"
"We'd like to arrange for a 1cwt bag of budgerigar seed to be loaded on the next flight to the Falklands. It's a special request."
..................... phone replaced with enthusiasm!
Oh ... and the date - April 1st!
Next afternoon a consignment of something arrived at an airbase in England for onward transport!!!
