I see that side of the argument too, and don't entirely disagree with you there.day we see the parade square getting weeded or bollards being painted by someone with a commission will be the day the balance is restored.
We all have anecdotes whereby we can see injustice, but the reality is very different since the introduction of the revised Human Rights legislation and its impact upon the services. Fines for damage to public property should not be extracted (or viewed) as a punishment.True...very true.
One rule for them....as usual
i know several ors on this board who left school at 16 and make more than a brigadier due to work ethic and common sense you pretentious condescending little pr1ckAs an officer I get bounced by a Brigadier not the OC, no date set as of yet; wait out.
Lets not look to closely at these 'inequities' the bop on camp is collectively trashed every friday night and its not a massive deal. This is just an example of the press (representing civilian life) gaining a small insight into the military world which is sufficiently different to civilian life to warrent a sensationalist story. Yes there are inequities between officers, SNCOs and ORs. I take it these critics have never had to complete months of dogshit essay competition training. Clearly these people have a beef with officers that goes beyond the matter of the issues at hand and to them I say: Should have tried harder at school!
If a soldier does something severe enough to warrant busting and an officer pulled the same stunt, although you won't necessarily see it, he would get more than just a few extras.can and will be bust and jailed for his crimes whereas a 21 yr old rodney commits the same crime and gets a few extras-
Convoy I beg to differ. There is nothing more public than having the entire months duty roster republished with delete following names and insert the following name. Everyone in the regiment knows that you have dropped a bollock. Believe me I have dropped a few in my time.When officers get bounced it is done on the QT. The day we see the parade square getting weeded or bollards being painted by someone with a commission will be the day the balance is restored.
