Back in the day people didn't get to go to the other side of the world and annoy the fuck out of everyone with their selfies of blue seas, strange food and racing like a dickhead for a sun bed!
Soldiers and Sailors on the other hand were often shipped around our great empire to protect it and put down the savages and locals.
Often on these trips when the tour was over these troops would collect strange animals and wild birds to take back to Blighty as a present for the misses.
When boarding these vessels the CSM would shout at the joyful often a bit drunk troops to collect all of their weapons and kit and not to forget to 'Grab your monkeys and parrots'
Alas to this day when large numbers of troops are moving to one place or the next the bloke in charge will still shout out this saying.
