Army Search As 2nd Gun Is Lost
Oh dear, these people aren't really bothered about career progression are they?!
If it's in 'Pembrokeshire's Brecon Beacons' then it really is lost.
Don't guns have wheels?
Someone has been careless.
And i was always told my my training staff - Always look after your own rifle.....Could make an interesting christmas present!!!
The Sun reported that the latest weapon had been lost by an Artificer Sergeant Major who was in charge of a 90-strong group of soldiers. He apparently handed it to one of his juniors at a temporary command post before going to do some administrative work, and could not find the weapon when he returned.-MoD Oracle.
If its true(with this paper you cannot tell),has someone done an inside job here?
Or someone has gone in for the ultimate stich-up...
What was it I was told when I first started? Oh yes, 'Never leave your kit!'
What is one of the first things a soldier is taught during weapons handlingâ¦. Never leave your weapon more than an arms distance away
Iâll bet a shiny nugget that the junior is now suffering for his ASMs mistake.
You'd have thought an ASM would have know better. Bet he's not going to get the urine ripped out of him much. I mean how can you lose an SA80?
Typical! Lay the blame on a junior soldier...Why couldn't the ASM look after his own kit?
Let's face it, under certain circumstances anybody can lose a weapon (I personally know somebody who managed to "lose" a Charlie Gustav!). But you have to work quite hard at it.
his weapon, his reponsibility. End of story.
The answer's simple: Don't give REMFs weapons!
Don't tar us all with the same brush! I'm sure that a few Infantry Bods have 'misplaced' weapons.
