Dad was in Royal Navy in Egypt in 1941. He told my brother he jumped ship to join FL. I don't know anymore. Just wanted to know if possible or if any examples of same?

It's possible but he would have been done for desertion when he came back.
Long story but he was done for being absent and served 90 days (reduced to 60 in a Jerusalem Detention....I just want to find out if there were any stories out there of joining the FL whilst serving in the forces? thank you

It has been done. I even recall a pilot who tried. However, he was turned down!
Told to come back when he was in long trousers!!!! (He was a dick)!
