An old Sailor and an old Fleet Air Arm were sitting in the Duke of Buckingham arguing about who'
d had the tougher career.
'I did 30 years in the Corps, 'the Fleet declared proudly, 'and fought in three of
wars. Fresh out of boot camp I hit the beach at Okinawa, clawed my way up the blood-soaked sand, and eventually took out an entire enemy machine gun nest with a single grenade.'
As a sergeant, I

avoid arrest by leaping into the back of his moving car during a chase in the Australian outback.
Police in the Northern Territory town of Katherine were stunned when they realised the 24-year-old driver had
