The storeman at work is called Bob, he's a top bloke really, early 50s, bit of a silver fox and a phiz monster, he runs to work everyday and spends his lunch times lifting weights in our heat treatment room. As a result Bob is fitter than most blokes half his age. He's got a top sense of humour and I've often remarked that he would have made a great squaddy or matelot. We got chatting about the forces a while back and he said that he'd always fancied joining up but just never got around to it, found a steady job and before he knew it he was too old to reconsider things. Anyhoo, a few weeks ago, I meet a chap through friends of friends and we get chatting about work, when I mention the name of my employer, he remarks ''Oh I know a guy called Bob who works there, we served together in the paras in the late 70s.'' On further questioning it turns out this chap is talking about the same Bob. This is later confirmed by another bloke at work who lets slip that Bob used to be in 4 Para. I approach Bob about this at a work piss up and I discretely let him know that I know he's ex mob. He completely denies it, ''I don't know what you are talking about mate, never even set foot in the careers office.'' I decide not to press the issue any further. The more I think about this the more I realise that he must be an ex squaddy, his humour, dress sense, his tea making skills, the fact that he gets massive every lunchtime, his pissing up ability. All the clues are there and obvious. So why would someone Walt it as a lifelong civvy and how can I expose this fraudster for what he really is, a filthy airborne squaddy?
