Unfortunatly i got arested for being drunk last night, they have informed my new barracks (leconfield) i am starting phase 2 tomorow and need to report to the OC about the matter.

Any idea what will happen to me? I have already been charged by the civilian police to i cant be charged twise, but im guessing my life isnt going to be made very easy because of this?

Have you been in any other trouble?

ISTR that anyone on a driving course at Leconfield who got caught exceeding blood/alcohol limits was removed from training. If driving was a core trade for you, tough.

While CivPlod may not charge you again, your employer certainly might.

Sorry, soon-to-be-former-employer.

You're due to start training at Leconfield (so I'm assuming its driver training) having got yourself a date with a magistrate lined-up. How do you think that'll go down?

My Bold.

Depends what 'That' means. If you are referring to being subject to Military Law then that does count. 24 hours of every day it counts.

If by that you mean getting chucked of your course then that is down to the discretion of the Course OC. If as you state you have never been in trouble, either Mil or Civ you might get lucky. If you are normally a tw*t then goodbye.

Also, with regards to being charged twice you are not quite right. Now the Police have charged you the Police cannot charge you again for the same crime. However the Military discipline system can still charge you.

Nothing you've done will ever bring the army into disrepute - there are far more dodgy individuals out there than yourself. Just tell your OC how ashamed you are - write a letter of apology to him and grovel.

Agree with FinalRV, your subject to military law regardless if your on leave. You think when your on Hols that your not, then youve just had the first painful lesson, the second may come on monday depending how the OC feels, but well you may im afraid have just blown it.

What were you actually doing?

You weren´t arrested for being drunk were you? Drunk and disorderly? Drunk in charge of vehicle, drunk driving, drunk smashing up a phone box.

Cop to it on turn up at leccy, (they are going to love you, day one week one :roll: From there on, they´ll let you know.

Don´t try to blagg it, and NOT admit to being collared. It will catch you up.

Come on gents, a young soldier being drunk during training?

Not exactly earth shattering.

PO, just face up to it, learn from the experience, take the punishment

and move on. Good luck.


As a relatively old man, I sincerely wish that the Armed Forces could

start to think seriously about the drink culture it allows youngsters to

develop.......but, as they say, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

He has just started well not even started Phase 2, hardly likely to be taken kindly, and as well, to get arrested for just being 'drunk' is pretty hard to do, there is as has been said always drunk and ..... :?
