Denis Nuthall, of 'A' Ptn, who sent the photo, wrote underneath it:

My fellows were always sitting on walls, they were always looking for empty walls to sit on.  The three at the back are not sitting or squatting as such, they are taking the mickey out of ‘B’ Ptn."

Denis wrote underneath this one:
This is ‘B’ Ptn, they don’t know what to do. Some are squatting,
some are standing, one poor soul is even kneeling.  It was easier to
find a wall to sit on. Look at their berets, they were awarded 'Best Ptn' once,
