What I find very disturbing is the bullying that "appears" to be taking place in the army recruit Training. During the war, men had to be prepared, and trained for the worst that the Nazi regime could inflict on them. The army discipline was there, and everyone had to toe the line, (In everything they did) At no time, did I ever witness bullying of any form, or indeed, anything other than proper training and discipline. That Sapper training was at time rigorous, and with strict disciplin.... goes without saying.....But Bullying? NO Never So why, if it is not necessary in war time? could it be construed as necessary in peacetime. I would add, that I have no first hand knowledge of any bullying. Only what I hear, and see on the TV. Views Please? Swordman.
