    I got to work with Aussies a few times while I was stationed in Hawaii, ’88 to ’92. We drank a shitload of beer together.

      My son got to live there for 6 months coaching in ’92. Told me their drinking stories. Sort of a religion. I had chance to try a desertion case there in ’74, from Hawaii. Judge and prosecutor and 3 lucky officers and EMs wanted to as well. Said it let local Aussie he lived and worked with 2 years to testify about his good character. Problem was, he lived there under an alias, which is prima facie proof of desertion. Dammit all.
