Only in the last few years have people in uniform got abused.

Fraid not mate-I can remember being stopped in the street many moons ago when I was going home from Cadets by some to55er who said 'just wait til we get you in Northern Ireland'. Charmer, especially when you're 16 lol.

More up to date, have been getting told by lads still serving of gangs of asians spitting on blokes in green kit out shopping in places like Windsor. Makes me fizz. :x

Its sad it really is, thing is if you are in greens and are approached by anyone thats obviously going to have a go and you defend yourself and end up pasting the said attacker, what would the media make of that!

]Depends how you do it and how you sell yourself to the police etc. afterwards.

May be it should become an offence to abuse anyone in military uniform?
Maybe there are plenty of other offences which cover this anyway, breach of the peace etc.

I can't quite decide if you're too old to remember or simply too young.

It happened on a regular basis in the early eighties. A mark one paddy wagon (Ford Transit) tried to run me over on the M4 slip road by the Courage brewery near Reading. Another time I was spat at and a trip to visit my sister in Streatham was to say the least interesting, particularly the bus trip from Brixton.

It didn't just happen to me so it wasn't my magnetic personality and as far as I can tell, the only things that seem to have changed over the years are the religious and/or political beliefs of the abusers.

But IMHO, the poor cadet was assaulted by a local Grade A listed fruitcake and they've been around since time immemorial.

It's sad the complete lack of respect there is for the forces now, I was thanked by the police recently after stopping two kids (around 15) who I saw not only defacing the war memorial in town with the words murders, rapists, and killers but who also when approached by a man in his 80s they pushed him down and kicked him. When I grabbed one of them he asked me why the hell I cared and after informing him that I was soon to be joining the army he then spat on me and called me wannabe murdering scum (always delightful i feel) and then attempted to hit me, so I did feel the need to retaliate at this point because as far as I am aware hitting women is still wrong so I did hit him quite hard and gave him a nice black eye to deal with.

Me and a young guy who came to help kept them there while someone called the police and they were both taken away and sadly the old man who turned out to be a war veteran had to be taken to the hospital to be treated for shock and a broken hip.

The above posts just reinforce how fcuked up Britain is becoming.

I bet if individuals or groups were picking on(say) women in burqas,the whole of the local plod would be out looking for the attackers.

One of my Cpls got verbally abused on Camden High Street last week by 2 asian looking guys. They started with "Have you been to Basra?"

I dont know how he kept his hands in his pockets.

I was in same place about a week earlier when I heard " Hey soldier", I tried to ignore it but he kept on. When I turned around ready for confrontation I was met by a Camden wino who wanted to shake my hand and give me a swig of his Tennants Super!

I know Camden is probably not the best place to go out in uniform but hey fuck it.

Special Branch are investigating the above incident by the way.

They never did like us in Windsor much anyway, apart from when we evacuated and sandbagged their houses during the floods. They kind of tolerated us for a few months after that.

Why? Would it have been better if he'd offered you a more upmarket beer?

Is this not an official offence anyway? I'm sure I recall something like that being enacted in the UK. Or have I got it wrong again?
