The quality of the loggie SNCOs if inversely proportional to the lack of discipline throughout the whole of the camp.
I'd rather walk around Lower East side LA dressed in full KKK regalia than walk around PRB after dark. If it wasnt funny, it would be a fucking joke.
I've seen more discipline in an East London secondary modern comprehensive school.
PRB WO & Sgts Mess is frequented by a bunch of fat, retarded wankers who's only role in life appears to be to get even fatter and make excuses why there is no discipline and why the hardcore lesbian militia run the gaff.
It's a real shame as a few years ago, the camp and Mess were very good.
Imagine if you allowed a complete chav council estate to move in to a nice Hampshire village? You get the picture.
I disagree strima-they were not worried about their careers they seriously lacked any sort of spine.
I know you lot don't rate the RAF Regt highly but I can faithfully promise you that if (IF) this situation occurred at Honington then the Mess would march itself down the Naafi and restore order in the manner that is most deserving of the circumsatnces.
I spoke to many mess members at PRB about this and was flabbergasted at the sheer cowardice they displaid. As mentioned above it is all about leadership, of which the maintenance of discipline is a corner stone. To be truthful I was disgusted. as my visit progressed it became obvious that the juniors could do what they wanted as they held no fear of any consequences.
The mess is OK in my opinion, but the accomodation is a bit crap compared to what the juniors have on camp. There is new accomodation being built, but that'll be ages away. The mess has a Garrison Mess Meeting once a month, but that might be changing to 3 or 6 monthly. RMP's an 102 Log are a joined mess, then you have 1,2 LSR, 6 Supply and 1 Regt AAC. It has just moved to PAYD, which means a lot pf us pads have dinner there as it's very cheap (for the Core menu).
PM me for any more info
Surely it is the responsibility of the GSM to get unit RSM's in, shove a rocket up their ar*es and tell them to get a grip of the boys in their unit's!!
As for the mess, I visited last year and the staff were all friendly and the three bars were all okay. If you are just transiting through, you will probably end up in a ten man room in the annex which is pretty basic.
So you're saying that there is a need to restore authority? Ipso facto there is a problem.
From my knowledge (have spent at least 7 years at PRB in the past), the RLC disproportionally are the issue (or moreover; their command structure). If that was not the case, 1 in 5 miscreants would wear a blue beret.
I can remember in 99 sharing a room with people awaiting a courtmartial for nearly killing 2 of 6 regt (11 people versus 2) not just a kicking but repeated stamps on their heads.
A few glassing in Sammy.
Many major punch ups outside the NAAFI at kicking out time with the guard commander and RP staff trying to break it up while the orderly officers and Base Sgt hid in the shadows until it was all over.
The Dyke mafia kicking fuck out of various younger dykes.
The rather large fight between 1gs and 2cs in the regimental bar which literally totalled the place yet not a single person got in trouble for it.
The guard commander geting headbutted and smacked to the floor with the culprit getting ROPs.
Young lads (especially in 23 and 11 sqn) having their room doors smashed off it hinges and getting a good kicking of the duty bullys.(with a few of the victims getting admin discharges because they couldn't handle it anymore)
Duty corporal outside of 23 or 11 sqn (can't remember which one) in a tent having to book people in and out because of the trouble that was getting caused
Yep I fairly much agree with the T_L_F, It was a discipline nightmare
1. None of what I posted is speculation or "heard from a friend" or "apparently". The place is in rag order and I saw some behaviour which whilst not serious in its own right did give an indication of how the juniors felt they could do as they please.
2. Perry Mason is the High Sheriff of Much Nastiness and should be re-employed as The CGS' Lord High Setter and Maintainer of Standards. I suggest the problem would cease after his first visit to PRB. A casualty clearing section should be constructed in the mess bar to tend the guilty.
