Sod off back into whatever hole you have been lying in for the last 4 or more years. We dont' want you back and don't consider creating more problems for those that have to deal with all of the sh*te you create when you turn up after all these years away! We, the army, are busy....you might have noticed and we don't need any sh*tebags who couldn't cope first time around showing their faces again!!!!
Stop posting on this website.....it's for serving soldiers and those who managed to complete their term of service legitimately and with pride!!!
No not really knew of a lad at depot RCT who had been AWOL for 5 years had started a small business and wanted to get the army thing over and done with. Ended up IIRC doing a bit of time at camp (might have been open arrest) before his CM were he got a few months Colly and soldier on! So not open and shut. And if he was with his unit and they had been warned for OP's doesn't then get classed as desertion?
