Monkey Run; why on earth is it still taught?

#1
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So why is it still taught ( or am I out of date?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?

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.
