Oooh yes, that big envelope with the Xrays in, how could I have forgotten that
My other lasting memory is that the metal detectors to get into the building were super-sensitive, and any females with underwired bras were causing alarms to go off

Did you have to whip your bra off and go through again, Polly? Wouldn't put anything past these Aussies

It got close actually! The guy couldn't work out why the detector was going off for women and not men but three of us got it down to a common denominator. Think he was too scared to ask us to start stripping
