    We had a dog handler from the Devon & Dorsets on the patrol boat I was on, you haven't been talking to him have you Windy? :LOL:

    I tried to steer clear of anyone of that rank but you never know, what's his name?

    So do I as a rule but you can't really avoid family. Won't name him in an open forum mate, but hazard a guess going by my user name!

    Not if you used the Living overseas allowance bud. In fact the company Sergeant Major usually negotiated a bulk buy with the locals for things such as duvet boots as well as Helly stuff and Norge army issue.;).........and I remember those cuffs though never bothered with them myself - that's taking luxury too far :LOL:

    I served in the RAAF from 1971-1980
    Enlisted in London and did my basic training near Adelaide.
    Went onto a clerical course,but it wasn't for me,so i re-mustered to Police dog handler.
    Moved around a fair bit,and my daughter was born in Wagga Wagga NSW.
    My claim to fame was i achieved Top Dog in Australia one year (i think my dog had something to do with that) My dog also held the Worlds highest jump from a standing start which was 5ft 1 inch.He ended up in a lot of the newspapers,and one reporter said he was more famous than Rin Tin Tin:D
    Had the honour of guarding the Queens aircraft in Canberra when she visited OZ .
    Best 9 years of my life,as it changed my whole outlook on life,which helped me no end when i returned to Scotland in 1980.
