The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Never used outside of training, and it hurts.
So why is it still taught ( or am I out of date? )
Never had to leave a nurse's home covertly then?
Two sure things in life; death and nurses...
Indeed, because you can evade/avoid taxes!
As soon as one of our commonwealth brethen complain about it, It will stop (or at least change name).
I was always led to believe it was developed from carrying a casualty with leg wounds underneath you (underslung) and they hugged your torso? Quicker than dragging.. I might be wrong...
i have been taught monkey run to be used for a casualty who can not walk but who is concious they place there hands around your neck and you use the monkey run as a fast method to keep low.
I thought it was just a punishment! Like touring the harbour on your belt buckle telling the whole Pl that you're a lizzard... in the style of Madonna.
"Like a Lizzard... Ooh! Touched for the very first time"
The bit I query is the "need" to use your knuckles on the ground, not the posture as such.
Apologies for bone posting.
We were once forced to Monkey Run for about 3 miles by the QMSI on Battlecamp at Grobbendonk once, then about an hour later we did a BFT. My time was about 2 mins slower than normal.
I fcuking hate Monkey Runs.
Best thing about being a civvy.
the reason for doing it on your nuckles , is so if there are sharp objects on the ground instead of going through palm of your hand it will go between the gap of your fingers in theory.
