How should we train new recruits?

Depending on Obama, basic Farsi could be taught, if we end up playing with the Yanks in Iran a knowledge of the local lingo would be an advantage.

Train them Clockwork Orange stylee. Strap them in a chair with eye clamps and play war films all day.

Shag em up the hoop with rolling pins, the ones that push back fail.

Instead of a normal adventure training week, they could do naked downhill-skiing paintballing.

Sorry, can't think of any funny ones.

Perhaps teach recruits about looking after their money wouldn't be a bad thing. Perhaps introduce some decent investment opportunaties. Too many lads now-a-days are skint by the the second of every month.

I never used to be like that ... then i got married.

Personal hygiene. how to hold your drink and basic literacy.

Oh, sorry. I thought we were talking primary schools here. Killing people, yes, that's what we need to teach them.

Basically with either field punisment Number one, or the old Legion way of beating one of their squad to death, if one of them leaves during phase one.

Get the very best troops available right now, then clone them ! Obviously the RRW will all look like Dolly the sheep but it's worth the risk if they're also steely eyed killers ! No training necessary as they would have been brainwashed in the test tube !

Schools and ATRA seem to have it backwards eh?

I'm going to teach you soldiering, the noblest profession. By the time I'm finished with you you'll be able to stand up and slaughter your enemies like civilised men. I'll teach you how to march, to shoot, to perform the Manual at Arms without thinking, and above all how to obey. Because a good soldier doesn't think - he just obeys.

Do you reckon if a man thought one minute he'd risk his life for Queen and Country? Not bloody likely! He wouldn't go near the battlefield! But one look at your foolish faces assures me you have the makings of crack troops. Why, that man there with the 4 1/2 hat size, he's got the makings of a bloody hero!

Get McGyver to give courses in bodging stuff together. Oh sorry, they learn that at their first working unit at the latest.

Yeah, but you'd need positive reinforcement while that was going on - you'd need to tug them off, or something...
