I have recently obtained my dad's army record. In 1944 he was a substantive WO1/RSM in one of the original Army Commandos, in his record it shows that, in the same year, he was disciplined for " Disobeying the legal order of a superior officer ". He received a severe reprimand. In talking to a T.A. colleague, he tells me that this would have been pretty serious and would have been dealt with at Brigadier level. Could anyone confirm this and what sort of disobedience would justify an RSM being charged and severely reprimanded ??
