UK training of Military Personnel
« on: June 10, 2015, 07:48:26 AM »
The inquiry on the deaths of 3 superbly fit Soldiers who died training for entry to the SAS brings things to my mind. My Eldest as a Royal Marine did this test but he went to the wrong mountain top I believe !
Originally appalled at his joining the Military, I was then even more aghast at the bullying and mindless aspects of the legendary demands of his RM training. Compounded by being regularly instructed at Lympstone, to go out on the p*ss in Exmouth after completion of any landmark.
Maybe we need a few less Military Jobsworths hanging around and a few more folks on the mountain with bottles of water. Just disgraceful.
