http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4366235.stm They make it sound like joing the army is like doing a Learn Direct course!!! Of course there is a high drop-out rate. The army is very demanding. Please define bullying and harrassment. Why? We have hundreds of recruits from commonwealth countries. I've not heard them complaining? The problem with critisising army training is that the civvies doing the inspection have absolutley zero knowlege of what a sldier needs to do in reality, and have nothing to compare it against.
