Not a troll or a wah but I'm bracing for incoming... When I was in my understanding was this: soldiers are obviously covered by military law but so too are spouses and even visitors when on camp so I have this story and a question. I'm in work today and a lass I know asks me about her friend. Her friend (Miss X) was on camp in the bar when a friend of hers (Mr Y) finished a mess do and joined her. Lots of alcohol was taken on board and both of them went off in car which left camp and subsequently left the road resulting in the death of Mr Y due to Misss X being over the legal limit. My work friend asked why is it that Miss X is being court martialled? This was in Germany. I could only assume that seeing as the offense started on MOD property that this is why Miss X is being done under military law and not under Germany civvie law. Also a couple of others are apparently being done for allowing them off camp in this condition. I lay no claims to the veracity of this story but the workmate who asked is not known for being a bullshitter. I'm just curious if this a) would happen and b) would this be official/ legal policy or simply a gesture on the part of the German police.
