Call me a bit of a Liberal but I personally think the sentences were too light.
14 and 12 years would have been more realistic in my book.
Apart from shooting pistols at police helicopters during riots, what do you have to do to get a decent sentence these days?You're all puffs.

Bolis my piss
If they've not got enough to contend with on tour they get badly injured on a night out.
They should hand them over to RM Provo staff to serve their 8 years
BTW was there any recriminations between the units?
I'm sure one of the old and bold will be along to tell us of Bedfords racing tyo the pub the following night and teh RSM & C.O. shovig the lads in the local boozer wher the other unit drank.We should remember the tremendous contribution of the Queen Mother to the war effort:
As the BBC pointed out, she 'bravely remained in London beside her husband' during the war.
This contrasts sharply with the actions of my grandfather who, on the declaration of war immediately left his wife and children and pissed off, first to France, then North Africa, Italy, France (again) and finally Germany.
The shame will always be with us.

A fair point as to what would happen if no one stepped in. Would certainly help the "more than merely preparatory" bit of the attempt!
I suppose we should build some more Prisons, but I would imagine the Government wants the private sector to do it.

My point is not that some sort of golden age existed. More that even in the time of the Vikings, it was possible to square away an argument in a 'fair' scrap. There's no such thing now.Try not to die a virgin. When you get to heaven they make you fuck a suicide bomber.

As an aside, and not ralating to the case in any way, in the film and book 'Hawaii', by James A Michener, one of the main protagonists, played by Richard Harris in the film, says after battering one of the natives -
'When you've got a man beat, kick him in the face.'
PS. Sorry to be a bit off-thread.

You can either accept the beating and therefor loose the argument( I'll stick to your man code and not kick you while you're down) or you can get pissed off getting punched by someone harder than you and stab me or something which is more likely to happen......your fair fight nostalgia is daft.Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination.
