volunteering vigilante

I read my friend's 7 dot , 8 dot post with a chuckle.
During the communist disturbance, the government imposed a volunteering vigilante, I am sure your Uncle CC Chang was a 7 dot, together with my Dad, they had to guard the police station and Queensway. One day, there was a double up, and the soldier in charge thought he was doing my Dad a favour by telling him guard the police station, you will be safe and winked he could sleep. While the others walked Queensway. Without thinking, my Dad agreed.
But later, he said, he almost wet his pants. The communists could easily bomb the police station. Those guarding Queensway walked in a row. Soldiers in front, and soldiers at the back. The 7 dot 8 dot officers tried to stay away from the soldiers. They reasoned, that the communist snipers would shoot the soldiers only. My grand dad who was sleepless the whole night lamented, why my son has 7 dots, 8 dots, only to be killed by the Communists.
