This is a question In the Army Now - The joy of the Armed Forces

I've never been a soldier. I was an air cadet once, but that mostly involved sitting in a mouldy hut learning about aeroplane engines with the hint that one day we might go flying.

Yet, anyone who has spent time defending their nation, or at least drinking bromide-laced-tea for their nation, must have stories to tell. Tell them now.

National Service
My grandad spent years trying to avoid National Service, his view was thats as he wasnt english he could work in England but avoid their army.

Anyways him and his brother, gave the Army the run-around for a bit. Until after laying pipes in front of some army type building they sent a letter home saying: haha they won't catch up with us, we were right under their noses...

The next letter started with the phrase "well its nice and sunny here in Malaysia"...my grandad fondly remembered his army days there
