After leaving school, Connery got a job as a milkman in the local Co-Operative Society, before signing up to join the Royal Navy. Unfortunately, he was discharged after three years due to a stomach ulcer, and briefly went back to working as a milkman.

During his years in the Navy, he got two tattoos: one that reads 'Mum & Dad', and another that reads 'Scotland Forever'.
