A young cadet is made upto L/Cpl after being a cadet for 6 months......4 months in and he's training recruits drill etc etc.
Pulled before his Platoon Commander and given a dressing down, for not saluting a officer. Fails couple of testing boards at 2 star and is striped of his rank.
Whats your views on this situation peeps????

My nephew was bust in cadets. He wasn't taking it seriously - as it sounds your cadet wasn't - so he deserved it. Where is the argument?When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains, And the women come out to cut up what remains, Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier. So-oldier of the Queen!

It 's what's not whats.
Pork pie sounds good.I write down everything I want to remember. That way, instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it is I wrote down, I spend the time looking for the paper I wrote it down on.

Sounds like the cadet doesn't put out.…bad indeed is the condition of a General when he has sickness among his men and an enemy to contend with at the same time.

He has only been in 4 months and he is teaching?
Talk about the blind leading the blind.
Who did he have to sleep with to get promoted after only 6 months?If I had known then what I know now, I wouldn't have made the mistake that taught me what I know now, but didn't know then.

Promoted too soon? And then not given the support he is entitled to and deserves. It is often overlooked that cadets are - until age 18 - children / young adults. They need guidance and advice from the Instructors and senior cadets.
Just my thoughts - for what they are worth.I'll be glad when I've chopped this bloody carrot!

I would question if he had enough knowledge of his Basic and 1 Star subjects to be an effective Cadet NCO.
This sounds like a case of a young person being promoted much too early and suffering the consequences.
