One fine Sunday whilst I was in a sulk, wondering why the hell I'd been made an untrained member of the Bty Office, only fit for filing duties, and ploughing through King's Regs to alter every reference to his late majesty to read "Queen", when I'd thought that being a squaddy was exciting, all about fighting & killing. A Don R wheeled his bike in the corridor of the billet. I looked at it longingly, smelled the oil, kicked the tyres. "It's knackered" he said "....... and I need it tomorrow morning". Something special, & REME had shut up shop. He kicked it up, it rattled & spluttered. "Got any spanners ?" I asked, he had. I took the tank off, then the rocker cover.

There I was, all oiled up, interested in life again, when in walked the Bty Cdr. Incensed, he was, said I wasn't allowed to even look at it unless I was a BIII, let alone poke about in its innards. I thought this was a bit much, I was devoting my spare time to help a mate and me, a soldier with four months service in,I was being warned I'd be on a charge if the bike wasn't back in one piece, preferably working & outside the Bty Office at 0900 hrs next day. It was a challenge, but I found the problem. One of the collets that held a valve spring in place had come adrift, it was still rattling about in the muck above the cylinder head, I slipped it back after the Don R held the spring down with bit of muscle.

So it worked for the BC to inspect it next day. There was no charge, no punishment, but the BC insisted Bluebell gave it a once over. And that was me off hated office work, sent to Bordon for 2 weeks to learn how to teach lads to ride a bike. Things were looking up !

I've a sneaking suspicion this might have been posted before, but it's worth repeating.

Gnr S...., a wide boy from the East End of London, decided the army wasn't for him and didn't come back to 16 LAA RA when his leave was over. He stayed away for six months before reaching the conclusion that he wouldn't get away with it forever and he popped into Woolwich depot to get the fare back to Osnabruck. He turned up at 16th's Guard Room with an escort. His BD was immaculate, for he prided himself on being properly dressed, and he'd had the trouser bottoms narrowed, as was the fashion; the DA haircut and side burns were hardly military, but they were trimmed down to something less than most wore before he was locked up. He was resigned to a long period in khaki, for time in detention didn't count as part of an NS soldier's two years of service.

Preparations for his Court Martial took some time to formulate, but he had made a good choice of officer for the defence. To cut things short, when Capt P delved into the background, he found no notice of Gnr, S's absence had ever been published on orders, the four copies of an Absentee Report....... one to file, one to Regt HQ., one to RMP and another to the bobbies at home...., were never typed and distributed, which was why he'd been left in peace in the smoke for half a year. For the defence, Capt P submitted that, as there was no documentary evidence, there was no proof that Gnr S had was guilty of nothing more than being absent from place of parade. The court didn't like it but had to agree. Having been locked away in the Guard Room whilst the evidence was gathered, Gnr. S was deemed to have served a sentence compatible with the charge of which he had been found guilty, and was set free.

Gnr S couldn't believe his luck, and went for the jackpot. He asked the President to confirm the courts's findings, then, like the sharp operator he was, he pointed out that, if he hadn't been absent, he was due the back pay which he'd never drawn. He didn't get it.
