I don’t think one should be too unkind to the RLC. Even some of our more distinguished regiments have some naughty little scamps:I know this is from 2016, but is there an RLC pattern developing in outrageous behaviour & EP strikes again:
A DRUNKEN officer kissed a soldier on his bare backside at a party for a dare.Captain Alex Johnston also planted a smacker full on the lips of another squaddie.Johnston, 25 — sent home from the Arab state of Oman within 24 hours of his booze disgrace — has now been fined £2,500 and his military career is over.The Royal Logistic Corps officer was in charge of 20 soldiers at the Muscat Beach and Yacht Club on a day off from a parachute course.Prosecutor Lt Cdr Alex Ward told a court martial the bash got “more and more rowdy, like a rugby club”.Johnston kissed a soldier on the mouth — then Royal Engineers Sapper Stephen Richards dared him to “lick my a***”.Lt Cdr Ward said other guests were in the bar as Richards, 19, dropped his trousers and the officer put his face between the cheeks of his bare bottom.Johnston later lurched off a coach vomiting and urinating in view of shoppers, the hearing at Colchester, Essex, was told.Judge Advocate Emma Peters said he behaved “in a loutish, disgraceful and totally reprehensible way”.Johnston, who quits the Army in March, admitted being drunk and disorderly.He was fined and given a severe reprimand. Richards was fined £400 but can stay in the Army.
