When I saw it I didn't realise it was supposed to be a surprise to the audience, I had assumed it was supposed to be obvious to the audience but the idea was that the soldier was naive and not very bright and therefore didn't realise. I thought the hints were a corner pub with a neon sign called 'Metro' and the, er, drag queens.

Am I alone here?
