Re: There is a venerable tradition here

"A friend of mine went to ask for the hand of his future bride in his army "vehicle"."

I was told of a lad who was so proud of passing his test to drive Scorpions that he took one out of the base and drove it home to show Mum.

He was duly court-martialled, and sentenced to 28 days in Army nick, which the CO then commuted to a week on fatigues because he had "shown the right spirit".
