Yeah, but did you get the bike after all?Like anybody from a lot of backgrounds, some people just go off the rails and it’s not necessarily service related.
I knew a guy who got caught after he robbed a couple of garages in the Dover area. He had acquired a sawn off shotgun from somewhere.
He went away for several years. The underlying cause was apparently something to do with his family, particularly his father, who weren’t a poor lot by all accounts. His army stuff wasn’t a factor at all in what he did.
It was a shame. He was a really decent bloke who would do you a favour if he could. I used to borrow a motorbike off him to go home at weekends and after using it several times, I offered to buy it off him. He declined my money and said just keep borrowing the bike.
Then the garage stuff came to light.
Barring that, a really good lad!
