soooooooooooooo funny!, 13 Feb 2011
classic milligan describes how he got involved in WW2 and how be brought the third reich to its knees. Typical of spike making fun in the most serious of siuations the descriptions of barrack humour and life before the war really hits home the worry, panic the manic behaviour it is all here an all time classic and to top it off it is all true just slightly changed to show the humourous side of a very crazy life.
Milligan receives a letter marked O.H.M.S., which his uncle advises him not to open. After some weeks similar letters arrive marked "Urgent". Eventually he opens one containing a "cunningly worded invitation to partake in World War II". About then, in an attempt to impress girls at a gym, he slips a disc, whereupon he's hospitalized to determine whether he's faking. After three months of avoiding call-up, he is given "a train ticket and a picture of Hitler reading "This is your enemy"". He searches the train, but can't find him.
