Life nowadays is a bit boring. Do something wrong? You get sacked. Or promoted. In the Olden Days things were different. The concept of redemption seemed alive and well, which can be illustrated by those people who travel the full circle of the golden wheel of fortune and go up and down the ranks. For example, I knew of one ex-Queensman who went from Sgt - Pte then up to full screw before being busted again then started the climb all over again before retiring as a CSgt in I suppose the late 70's. He was very, very ancient and used to visit the bar in the TAC to tell war stories and be bought beers. I also know of two legendary coppers (both now sadly deceased, but songs are still sung of them around the campfire) who went from Pc - Sergeant - Pc -Sergeant. Their misdemeanours ranged from insubordination to drunkenness to criminally damaging the boss' flash new sportscar. Any other legends who've been up and down the ranks like a yo-yo? V!
