No more Wars?

Them silly hemets would have to go and proper ones issued with adequate ear protection



Not like you'd get chance to fire your rifle anyway, you'll be shot by the time you get past all the safety guards and switches on it

I can see it now.

"Sorry mate. You can't come on the battlefield without your PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). You could get hurt."

Or the signs proclaiming, "108 days since the last injury on this battlefield".

What about slash proof gloves for when playing with bayonets/gerbers/leathermans? Although there is no need when using the issue clasp knife because they are blunt as feck.
 
#7
Will the FEBA (or whatever it's called now) be surrounded with BFO blue painted sheets of plywood, with little rectangular viewing holes, so passersby can can peek in on the action?

Legal duty of care, that will be mental and psycological care as well.
So, where does that put HMG regarding troops on notice of redundancy in theatre or en route too? That is bound to open up oppertunities to a legal challange.

Recently on Herrick one of my duties involved checking kit near the front gate, I didn't leave the confines of camp, was behind hard cover and as the gates were kept shut I would be out of sight to those "out side the wire". I still had to wear body armour, helmet, gloves, eye protection and hearing protection.

Yes, but instead of being painted blue, they will have an artists impression of what the battlefield will look like when it's all finished.

Hope you had steel toe capped boots on as well.

Wont be able to go anywhere unless there is an adequate footpath to get you there. Said foot path shall be patrolled by pcsos and no win no fee lawyers in case you trip.

If the Army keeps insisting on playing with sharp things and stuff that goes bang all you're doing is giving the H&S Nazis an excuse to keep hounding you. It's your own fault.

You should stop being nasty to people.

I took this to mean that Wars from now on would either be fought under PFI rules (private company fighting under a no win no fee agreement) or extensive use of mercenaries on fixed term contracts, which stipulate bring your own body armour, weapons etc. Customs should be fun when said merc, arrives in the UK to take up their contract. "Now what did you say you needed five personal weapons for? I will also need you to sign a waver to ensure you don't wage war on the general public"

And should you be hit or nearly or there is an inference to you being hit, god forbid! Then a team of councillors will be on hand to ask "How did that make you feel". And from then on you are made for life.

You lot are all missing the obvious signs of how war will be conducted in the future.
By 2130 (the year - not half past nine you cunts) there will be one soldier imbedded with every newsteam that goes into action.
Opposing newsteams will be fighting eachother for 'action shots' and the SLR (the camera - not the frigging rifle you old bastards) will have given way to the all singing all dancing instant video with 'capture and interrogate' facility built in.
Mobile units will consist of up-armoured BBC outside broadcast vans that also sell ice creams to the local kiddies in order to get them to appear in mass shots of 'poor downtrodden natives' suffering from the effects of starvation and brutality.
Air cover will be provided by CNN as they have all the helio-chopters.
The imbedded soldier will merely be there to police the area after the film crews have finished for the day.
Personally I am half way through selection for Kate Adie's Own Light Technicians, the SAS of the film world.

Now this i got to see, singing dancing wars now that would be something worth paying to see at the local flee pit.
