I was always under the impression that out of the three RLC regts within PRB that 2 LSR had the worst discipline problems and 1 LSR seemed angelic in comparison. But if the rumours are in anyway truthful I think that 1 has just come alongside and both regts are now neck and neck. What are the rumours? Well I know that 2 LSR have had problems with Alcohol, Vandalism, Drink Driving, Drugs and Violent behaviour. Not wanting to be outdone 1 LSR has just jumped on the bandwagon and done most if not all of the previous. What the hell is going on????? The heirarchy always want to hear solutions to the problems well here are some of mine (Solutions that is!!!) Alcohol is the root of most problems. When sober most people know the difference between right and wrong, add cheap alcohol and some people forget the difference between right and wrong. Alcohol makes people less able to make the right decisions, unable to reason turns people to violence, too much alcohol increases the tolerance to it so a minority may look elswhere for another high = drug taking. Alcohol ..................Stop Club 47 being open so late, why, cause it then forces troops down town thus buying expensive beer/alcohol which most cant afford... NO MONEY=NO BEER= LESS PROBLEMS Some say the problems come from weak leadership, maybe its not weak leadership but the fact that the leadership has been taken away from NCOs both senior and junior by micro-managment. The heirarchy want things to go there way so micro-manage the SNCOs, SNCOs then micro-manage JNCOs, PTEs see this and wonder what the hell is special about being an NCO and its a downward spiral. Give the leadership back to the guys on the shop floor, let being an NCO somthing to aspire to be and not just a higher paid Pte who still gets shat on. AGAI 67 was put in place to bring us into line with civvy streets discipline guidlines. 2 Verbal warnings, 1 Written warning and then youre out!!!! You have been warned so bye bye. Lets put AGAI 67 into practice get rid of the crap and raise the standards by getting rid of those unable to meet the standard, be it Pte Soldier, J/S NCO or Officer then watch the standards rise. As always I cant wait to hear some views on this matter. PS This aint a trade related rant so lets keep the trades out of this, just solutions to the problems of PRB.
