in ww2 my father served with inniskiling fusiliers. wounded in action in the retreat to dunkirk, he then spent some weeks walking to pow camp in poland. and there he stayed, until freed by advancing russian troops who employed him as a rifleman until handed over to us forces. after time serving with them he was eventually repatriated, and promptly posted to palestine, followed by malaya and jamaica before finally grabbing an instructor post with ta back in ulster. all this by the age of 28 too. anyone else end up serving in 3 different armies?
