High ranking officer returning to UK from Cyprus bullies Herc crew into carrying his tax free car over higher priority freight.
En route crew declare engine problems and jettison car into the Med.
I've heard it was a homeward bound SENGO who pulled rank to ignore the accepted practice of drawing lots for spare Herc space (?) to get the winners car home, but the resulting car swimming in the Med is the same.

A SWO once spotted me walking across the grass outside SHQ and shouted "Airman" etc etc....
