Lance Corporal Albert Lane, the Army cockatoo, has returned to Lavarack Base in Townsville, QLD after being AWOL (absent without leave) for three long weeks.

Ten News reports that the mascot of the Signal Squadron escaped on the day he was due to have his wings clipped, but was safely returned after a few weeks of living with a nearby family.
