These orders listed all the people who were on various duties for the next 24 hours, any important notices, notices about parades or kit issues then, at the end they had sports notices and the one I have attached was actually printed on Part 1 orders at the Cambridge Military Hospital, Aldershot back in the 1960's.
The last phrase was one that any clerk would have given his right arm to publish.
