Sentencing - Being absent from duty without leave - Armed services - Non-commissioned army officer - Whether unfair disparity between sentences imposed by army and sentences imposed by other services - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
A sentence of 265 days' imprisonment imposed upon a defendant who pleaded guilty to being absent from the army without leave was upheld on appeal because no unfair disparity between sentences imposed by the army and sentences imposed by the other armed services for an offence of that kind was established.
