Ah, yes the things that soldiers (and other service people get up ). I don't come from a military background, but my dad and my Grandad were commissioned during the First War, and Second Wars. the only person who let things down a tad was little old me. A couple of offenses that lost me seniority as a Corporal - oh the shame of it. I never did any jankers but it was enough to be on Guard Duty or as a RP Corporal that I didn't want to end up in the nick as a sus.

It seems that boredom, then drink was the downfall of many a soldier. sailor and airman to go off the rails at times, and end up in the Guardroom or Military Nick. I have never gone back into my family histories to find out if there were any more who took the Kings shilling or the Queens Shilling during Victorian times - no doubt there were a few.

Len, my wife's grandfathers conduct sheets are a bit similar, he has a few incarcerations for AWOL. It is interesting to note that in those days, instead of having your "Nick time" added on at the end of service, you went down a snake and started again - effectively you could have served 12 months but not have any accumulated service! It couldn't have done him any harm as he finished up as RSM of the Lancashire Fusiliers!

My regimental 'rap sheet' read like a short novel, which is why at the 15 year point I was refused an LS&GC. Looking back I think I Joined to young, I was an immature headstrong 17 year old who knew it all and as a result had many regimental entries including three spells in nick, I'm talking local nick not MCTC. First with 16 Bn RAOC Bicester, then a year or so later I spent a couple of weeks in 45 Regt RA nick at Hohne, later a short spell courtesy of 2 Coldstreams at Fally. The worst was 45, they had me wearing a highly polished silver tin lid and I would often be seen carrying a bloody great shell around!
