Catch 22

I've been browsing through the Methodist baptism & marriage records over the last couple of weeks at Nottinghamshire Archives

Whilst looking for my ancestors, I came across an entry which made me smile.  On 20th April 1946,  Harold Major married  Biddy Stevenson at the United Methodist Church, Redcliffe Road, Nottingham.  Harold was a Sergeant in the Royal Army Service Corps, which of course, makes him Sergeant Major.  Should he earn a promotion, he could be Sergeant Major Major and following that, Major Major!

If you've ever read Joseph Heller's Catch 22, you'll know why this tickled me!
