My old man tried all three services and the police, didn't get in any. A family trait is we are all tall and skinny. He was classed as malnourished. (as a scaffold ganger)I think he was proud and a little envious at my passing out parade.I was toying with joining the police but couldn't get in at the time as my late dad had been a naughty boy and got a criminal record. He, my grandad and great grandad were all ex army, so foolishly I thought I'd combine the two and joined RMP. The rest is history.
