RM in tabloid naked and fighting shocker

ITV News has just shown, as its main story, a film of a bunch of p*ssed and naked Marines fighting. When one complains, he is kicked by another who is apparently an NCO. ITV are playing it for max tabloid results: "The drunkeness and violence within our military"; "One man is kicked unconscious by his commanding officer (sic)" and so on.

News of the World tomorrow, apparently. That'll be the sister paper to The Sun, the paper that supports our boys (allegedly).
Booties kicking off whilst being naked/pished/hanging out of a small mammal is as much 'News' as the sun coming up each morning then going down in the evening. Slow day for the fish wrapper salesmen I suspect.

They should report on a member of a well known non ITV soap opera allegedly batting for the other side. But I doubt they ever will due to it being a 'bit close to home'. :roll:
Violence is what the military is all about. NOTW is arrse anyway. Obviously Abi Titmuss is on the blob this weekend
Curious how the tabloids always manage to come up with a story damaging to the military shortly after MoD have been criticised.

This week:

- Lt Gen Irwin says Ministers reneged on an agreement over cap badges

- MoD reckon getting the overspend on procurement feck-ups down to a mere 2.7bn is good news

- Hain & Bliar get a hard time over the NI appeasement process and Hain will soldiers may be treated the same as terrorists

- MoD are criticised for spending huge amounts on TV sets, for when their staff get bored with the art they recently bought

Or should I be collecting beret, aluminium foil, alien ray deflecting on Monday?
If these guys want to box naked with sleeping bags on their arms while the referee is dressed as a woman .. fair play to them.

And troops such as these are trained to be aggressive, cant understand why everyone seems shocked when they kick the crap out of each other now and then.

Must be a lack of celebrities shagging about.

Anyone know who won ??
It was a fair right foot to the swede, mind... instant sparko factor, the Bootie was poleaxed...
Any links
Just got text off ex bird saying royal in the sh+t?

Radio 4 reported at midnight that he was "dressed as a St Trinian's schoolgirl". I thought the reporter was trying to suppress a giggle!

Hoofing lads, nice to see my glorious Corps is keeping its fine standards intact. Must admit, as said previously "Royal" kicking off whilst naked / in a dress is not a great shocker. As i sit here on a Sunday morning in matching twin set and pearls kicking my oppo about......
THE News of the World exposes the bullying culture of Britain's elite armed forces with a secret video documenting a sickening catalogue of abuse.

A young Royal Marine is FORCED into a barbaric naked fight with another recruit and then KICKED unconscious by a superior in a brutal booze-fuelled initiation ceremony.

And the shocking ritual—covertly filmed by a commando—is alleged to be one of many imposed on recruits.

Now the film is being investigated by Ministry of Defence top brass who have confirmed it is genuine.

Our source claims the culprit holds senior rank. The Marines would not confirm his position but an MoD source said: "He's not an officer but he is an NCO."

They identified the 42 Commando marine—dressed in a blue surgeon's outfit—who carried out the attack and he is being disciplined.

But our whistleblower reveals the beating that could have KILLED the young recruit in this video is one of many chilling secret initiation ordeals he has witnessed as a marine.

A veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq, he said: "This is the worst thing I've seen happen—that's why I filmed it—but it's the tip of an iceberg.


"The guy laid out was inches away from being dead. Stuff like this goes on all the time—but when drink becomes involved it gets worse."

The whistleblower went on to reveal how marine recruits were:

TORTURED with shocks through electrodes attached to their genitals

FORCED to crawl naked through thorn bushes

ORDERED to jump out of bedroom windows, even though some broke their legs, and URGED to fight each other with one hand tied behind their backs.

"The top boys in the Royal Marines know this all goes on but they turn a blind eye to it," said our marine.

The violent initiation ceremony he filmed took place in May at Bickleigh Barracks, near Plymouth, home to the elite 42 Commando.

"They call them Joining Runs—or Sprog Olympics—because sprog is slang for baby and these were new recruits," said the marine.

"12 of them were taken to a barbecue on the top field with about 40 other marines watching.

"Their superior was getting them to do stranger and stranger things, while getting them p***** and picking on any who didn't do what he wanted.

"He was getting more and more menacing, swearing and threatening. He ordered them to take their clothes off and run round the field giving each other naked piggy backs.

"Then the fighting started. The bloke disappeared and came back with the surgeon's outfit, mask and cap on and things really turned nasty when he ordered them to start laying into each other. You can see it on their faces in the film that they're scared."

Naked fellow marines surrounding them can be heard baying for blood as the man in the surgeon's outfit and another in a St Trinian's uniform, complete with wig and short skirt, supervise the cruel contest.

First the hapless pair have rubber mats strapped to their arms and start slugging away.

Then they are told to remove their mats and square up with bare fists before being ordered on to their knees to wrestle.

Then the ‘surgeon' lashes out and hits him in the head with a martial arts kick practised by marines as part of their unarmed combat techniques.

"He used his shin which is what you're taught to do in kick boxing. Your shin is as hard as a baseball bat," said our marine.


"He could have killed the guy. If that kick caught him on the temple, that would have been it. Lights out for good.

The guy on the floor was unconscious for a couple of minutes—and was sick when he came round. He had to be helped away. His boss just stood there with a can of wifebeater (the marines' name for Stella Artois lager) while the guy was out cold, goading the others to have a go at him if they dared. But we knew we couldn't."

This attack was hushed up. But there are many other ordeals awaiting new recruits, said our marine.

"I've seen new recruits have electronic pads from massage machines attached to their testicles and heads," he said.

"I've known of recruits who have broken their legs jumping out of windows. I had to jump out of a window into a thorn bush. I've seen others thrown naked into thorn bushes and have to crawl through them. Recruits are also made to fight each other with a giant boxing glove on one hand and the other tied behind their back."

After seeing the video, a Ministry of Defence spokesman said: "The Royal Marines take these allegations extremely seriously. The Service Police have launched an investigation."

The men dressed as a surgeon and a St Trinian's schoolgirl are being disciplined and new orders have been issued banning ‘Joining Runs'—and threatening to prosecute anyone who takes part.

"Marines need to be tough and training should be tough. You don't want wimps," said our source.

"But what happened on the film doesn't help anyone."


What a load of bollocks.
FFS, now i know we should all love each other and not say nasty things. But i'd quite like the marines to be the hardest feckers we have and if that is one way of weeding out the wimps, then so be it! Lets face it, if they get captured, they will get worse, and they cant run tot he Scum then!!!!

It's not the need to be tough that worries me. Its their desire to hang around with lots of other naked blokes (oh, and one dressed as a woman) that concerns me!

Seriously though, the media will play up the bullying aspect of this. But put yourself in the position of a 16-17 year old heterosexual male potential recruit to the RM. "OK, so there's initiation ceremonies. I suppose I should expect that. After all it's a pretty tough job. But why are they all naked apart from the man dressed as a schoolgirl? Hmm... perhaps I'll think about another arm of service."

The RM have done themselves no favours here.
I'm inclined to agree with oneshot, I also like the fact that our elite forces are the best and scariest on the planet, if the methods employed in getting the men to that standard aren't stomachable by the readers of the News of the World then so be it, they don't have to join and they can sit back and watch the nasty men deal with the baddies should the need arise.

If they don't like it, there are regular trains from Yeovil and Lympstone etc that can take them home to mummy, but looking at the physiques of some of those guys, and there unyouthful looks I would say they have accepted the rules of the team they wish to join.

It just makes it amusing that its all in the bollocky..

I went to Kenya with a load of Booties in the early nineties, in and among thier Bergans and civvy kits were flowery frocks and posh hats... it was the norm.

So the pictures and video were un PC..... so are the bullets and explosives that these fellas are going to be facing within the next twelve months.
