Army recruits are living in appalling digs

#1
It as been reported that our army recruits are living in 'appalling' digs ,It makes you wonder our many other soldiers and there familys are living in such appalling conditions .

our government keeps saying time and time again they are going to sort the problem out but the problem seems never ending .

Our soldiers and there familys are owed a duty of care which they are not receiving .

9 out of 10 times if she posts something reasonably well constructed and articulate it’s probably a copy and paste job :D

Or someones broken into her house and in between pissing on her floor and robbing her, decides to post something on the internet.

I guess it must be terrible for the little loves.

Maybe if we let them bring their mums to basic with them so they can clean and iron for them it will be ok.

Frankly, when I was in I think I must have slept in every sort of accom there was, the nice big airy 24 men rooms at Pirbright, the nice second world war Browning Lines at Pirbight, got upgraded to 8 man rooms in Deepcut (didn't know what to do with the extra space), roughly 30 man rooms at Leccy, 4 man rooms in BFG, and the ulitmate Holy Grail. The single man room in Abingdon, with my own sink to p1ss in!

In all of those places I don't think I ever heard anyone complaining about the accom, if you thought your room was a bit sh1t, you did something about it.

It was all good practice for when we got to Bos and lived in tents for 6 months, god knows what these little darlings will be like when they get over to the sandpit and find out what their sleeping in there.

Sorry if I went on a bit but it really grips my sh1t when I hear of people complaining about stuff that when I was in was just considered normal, it's the Army for fcuks sake not daycare.

Here endeth the rant

I do agree with you Mac, but it is just a bit of a tw@t that they look after prisoners better.
You can train to live more sparsely on exercise.
After a few years in the army I am sure you are entitled to live in a place that is at least up to the standard of prisons.

Granted the treatment of prisoners is of a better standard than that of a soldier, but that is a seperate issue. As I've said on other threads, prisoners should be locked in a concrete box barely big enough to stretch out in and fed through a small hole in the ceiling.

Soldiers deserve better than prisoners but they are also the most professional soldiers in the world, they can take more than the sh1tty chav scum littering the prison system.

Depends what you read of course:

Training at the UK's largest infantry training centre has been described as "world class" by the chairman of an Independent Advisory Panel as he presented their first report at Catterick Garrison in North Yorkshire.

Chairman Alasdair MacConachie, the Vice Lord Lieutenant for County Durham, was presenting the first of the Independent Advisory Panel reports on military training establishments in the UK.

He said the panel had looked at quality assurance and management and that was "excellent", with everyone striving to do things better:

"Everything that goes on here is world class and it has been a privilege to be part of it," said Mr MacConachie. "Wherever we have been in the ITC we have had absolute access and co-operation from everyone concerned.

"We set out to look at complaints procedures to ensure that they were fully accessible and I think, from an independent perspective, it was very open to all concerned and very well managed.

"We looked at equality and diversity and once again that was world class - as good as we are going to see anywhere."

Mr MacConachie added he had seen the standard of accommodation improve dramatically, with poor facilities being dealt with. He also said that he believes some of the new accommodation is "very, very good".

The report was presented to Brigadier David Clements, Commandant of the School of Infantry in Catterick, who said he valued the panel's contribution: "I think the key word is independence and the words that appear in this report have come from the five experts who have been generous of their time and their advice over the last 18 months," he said.

"There is little or nothing in the report that surprises me. It shows that we are working together effectively and it is helpful for me to have objective, external analysis of what we do and to have that little bit of oversight and guidance."

Brigadier Clements said he was convinced that the Infantry Training Centre had the correct procedures in place to deal with any allegations of bullying. He thanked the panel for their report and said he was proud of the ITC's achievements, adding that they would act on the advice given.

In conclusion, Mr MacConachie said: "We thoroughly enjoyed our participation in this interesting and unusual project. We have hopefully been able to add value and we look forward to building upon what we have done."

This is true prisoners are live a life of luxury ,While our soldiers are living in barracks which are not up to standard .

Our government should be sorting the barrack problem out for our soldiers first they are the one's who fight for queen and protect our country .


That all prisoners do is get a luxury living for all the bad things they do in our society
