US immigration control is also undertaken in Ireland - can't remember which, can never remember my Belfast's from my Dublin's.

As a general tip be very nice to the immigration officals.
Many of them are wankers of the highest kind, and they
can be very nasty. Read the instructions carefully,
refer to them as sir or officer, be polite etc.
This is very hard to do in general because they are :roll:
not very pleasant. Unfortunately, I've seen some really nasty
stuff done to passengers: i.e. go to the end of
the queue, detention for questioning etc. Whether its
done out of vindictiviness or not, the end result is
that you inevitably miss your plane and I am not
sure what the obligations of an airline are if
you are detained by immigration and hence
miss your flight.

So he never was a fully fledged general in the regular army.
