I know of at least one person here in Ostgardr who became involved in
training auxilliary police in riot control.

Drill Instructor: At ease. Private, I've been watching you practice.
What was your rank in the SCA?
Private A.: Duke, sir!
Drill Instructor: I thought so.
Private B.: Sir, what does 'SCA' mean?
Drill Instructor: It means you can't beat him.
Private B.: Sir, what does 'Duke' mean?
Drill Instructor: It means I can't beat him.
Apocryphal, also, but told of Vissevald Selkirkson...
