One who didn't fit into either 'bad' or 'couldn't hack the system' was one of our favourites from C Sqn, Rotty Morris.
In Hohne he heard his ex (I think) Mrs had taken up with a fellow who was battering his kids. Naturally he went AWOL.
System was, in those days that they were given 24 hrs to return of his own accord after which it then became official and certain steps were taken. One of the steps was that the police in his local area back in UK was informed. On this occasion one of the local 'bobbies' was outside his old home when Rottie showed up. Before nabbing him he asked why he had gone absent, whereupon Rottie told him. The old style bobbie told him he would give him 15 minutes to acquaint himself of the said gentleman, after which he had to come with him. It didn't take Rottie 15 minutes after which he gladly went with the friendly copper. He left his ex-wife to fix the window through which her new boyfriend had flown, or is the word propelled.
