Physical Abuse in Training

#1
Right,

Hands up, who got battered, stripped off, covered in Cam cream from head to foot and suffered the Land Rover wheel torture or the sandbag over the head and jerrican of cold water over the head as a punishment for sleeping on sentry or being ambushed by the demo squad?

To any youngsters reading this thinking WTF? this is how it used to be done.

What was your worst punishment during training?

Be feckin sensible: No names.

Land rover wheel torture, yes. Reggie baths, yes (but not for me) Body blows were frequent but proper beatings didn't happen. Certainly, the full screws liked to give the idea that they were only a hair's breadth from extreme violence.

Were they bullies? Yes. But mostly, they operated within what was acceptable.

This was 1992

I was forced to drink copious amounts of alcohol and got called nasty names by the SSM the next morning for falling over. Twice.

I was made to run the "Corridor of Pain" - basically trying to get from one end to the other while the training screws tried to leather you.

Took part in the "Sprog Olympics" at my first unit with 5 other new arrivals - drink booze from the "Respirator Of Doom" (S10 with the canister removed and a dirty pint poured in instead), then throw self out of 2nd story window onto issue thin green mattress below. Points were awarded for style, grace and bones broken.

Apparently they either did not know or care about a condition called "alcohol poisoning."
You've got me there, unless you mean the alchohol had been fiddled with. By adding water or something

Round the square with a shell case half full of wet sand above the head, pokey drill, regi bath (not me), valising

Dance of the flaming arseholes, idiot olympics etc were for fun, not punishment, so don't count

One of the lads got a "fleet bath" and was eventually got kicked out after 28 days in DQs. One of the charges was "Letting his kit fall in to an insanitary state"

Not fiddled with, simply far too much causing an ethanol overdose. Happens fairly often in uni initiations.

Two wahs in a day. Not bad going

There was no bullying at Pirbright or Deepcut in '94.
We were treated respectfully by troop corporals and tucked in under our duvets every night.

At no point was I made to buffer the ceiling of the guardroom.
And we weren't given change parades at all in Biff Platoon, we just had frequent 1157 checks every time we fucked up.

Sent in a harsh font, using finger paints

'83. nipple twisting, nose flicking (cold morning), pokey drill and quick change parades. Some beasty runs.

One lad had a Regi bath. But he really deserved it, the minger. He came back from leave with cam cream still in his ear.

Actually you are right.

I remember the Sand Hill at Pirbright coupled with my S6 Respirator with fond memories. And the Locker Inspections, after which I would, in tears, collect my kit from the lawn in front of the block.
