Just heard the good old fashion 'extra' has been returned to the RSMs tool bag. Be it under a different name!

Wonder if the'good hiding behind the garages' will?

I heard this one a few weeks ago and thought to myself then "about fcuking time".

Apparently, the recipient has a "reasonable time" to appeal. It was put to me that a reasonable time was between 1700 when the badge man dished them out and 0800 the next day when the naughty boy tipped up at the Guard Room in nicely pressed combats.

Too reasonable I reckon, the time between copping the extras and geting to the block to get changed would be far more reasonable :D

Wonder what they'll bring back next? Having to address people by rank instead of first names, getting 252'd for gobbing off at NCO's? Fcuk me, anyone would think that they were in the Army :D

I have "heard" that the rules of disciplining have had a major overhaul as per new AGAI due out soon. The main points being that NCOs, (JNCO/SNCO) can give extra parades to the men as transgressions arise thus givin more power to them as NCOs. It could possibly be abused by the newer Lance Jacks however i believe that this is long overdue.

Getting extras is fine if:

a. you done the crime - do the time
b. the Badge forgets it once the extra(s) are complete and not carried on like some f*ckwits have done in the past.

Agreed, I also hope that some realistic amounts have been thought up. I remember getting 15 for an extremely minor incident when i was a siggie. I was told i was lucky to get away with the extras (i'd have probably got a small fine from the OC). Then i carried them out, day on day off for a month. Absolutely fcuking soul destroying, and taught me no lesson whatsoever except that my Tp SSgt was (and remains) a complete nosher.

Extras? I've had em and shat em! remember ladies and gents, although "extras" may seem to be an infringement on "personal" time, YOU ARE STILL GETTING PAID !!!! lol so its a piece of pish really. better that than get whacked with a milfine. Mind you saying that I reckon the old "bottle of port" "crate" or the " brace up, im going to hit you hard and you will say thankyou sir" always were fairer, and i believe would have cut out the paperwork too lol.

Its easy to edit someone elses posts when you quote them, just like this.

Behave yourself. :D

All that has happened is that the big bosses have finally decided that the JNCOs should be responsible for their actions and that the Human Rights Act 2000 has been balanced. It is about time JNCOs took responsibilty and finally earned their pay rather than pass the buck upwards :)

Reading thru these posts i read such things as AGAI 67,Human Right Act 2000............... I do hope I am not the only one who thinks, if you signed on the line etc etc, I don't mean out and out bullying that is bang out of order but a good forkin slap never hurt anyone and it certainly teaches respect (you won't do it again) which of course translates to the field. To much fannying about will produce crap troops. Bring back em all, extras, change parades, cookhouse duties, sweeping the square, mess tin order, the "shell" or bin or whatever else they had in the guardroom, pokey drill, havin to bull ur best boots with sand for two minutes,runnin round shoutin "im a cnut and a cnuts best mate" in full chinky suit fighting order (lol) lets see the human rights get on that! all character building stuff!
In retrospect it was all pretty funny!
We never wrote to the papers tho did we!
