After a reasonably satisfactory military career, years of defence industry management experience and two years as a director of a FTSE100 company, I jacked it all in to become a window cleaner two years ago. Have any other officers made the switch from jack-pudding/"suit" to manual labour? It has been the rejuvenation of me, with weight loss, energy boost and more control over my life-style than I ever thought I could possibly regain. I had every Wednesday off last season for shooting for example - although to be fair I had every day off when I was shooting in SAAMs in the Army!! The money's pretty reasonable too although that has never been the issue. If anyone wants their windows cleaned by a Lt Col, then now's your chance!! I won't travel though and nothing kinky like mullions okay??
