How long does the process take, from start to finish? I've got less than two months to run and I'm wondering what I can get away with. I'm presuming that if I discharge before the court convenes and it's not a civil crime, I'll get away scot free. I'm not planning the overthrow of the military system or embarrassment of superiors, just a last-minute bit of impish behaviour that'll mark my passing. But it will be disobeying Part 1s. Wilfully. And obtaining permission would detract from the entertainment value. I'm only asking in case my CO doesn't see it from my point of view.
