Single rooms for young singlies - a good idea?

#1
I've heard comments that accommodating young single soldiers in their own rooms is allowing them to shut themselves away from the other lads/lasses in the troop/platoon so they start dwelling on their problems alone instead of getting support from their muckers. Seems to be a worry for training establishments especially. Any truth in this? Is it causing a breakdown in the social life of the team?

Wasn't a problem in Germany in 1986 why should it become a problem now?

Where is this info coming from? Rumour control? Journalistic licence? Which trg estb in particular? If you are a journ then go dig elsewhere. Arrant tosh. All of it.

Oh yeah? And where did you hear these 'comments'?

Have any luck with your first question here on the ARRSE did you?

Is it not proof enough that serving soldiers are giving you the answers?
I'm very grateful for the views of serving soldiers but I need the primary source.
Primary source eh? Sorry, cant help. I could give you the primary source of MOD sales of surplus Milans to the Tamil Tigers, but thats not what you asked.



shit. Is this thing on?

Why do they never ask if we had a Shoot to Kill policy in Nireland any more? The reply "No, we had a shoot to mildly tittilate policy" still creases me.

You just cant get the Journos these days, eh?

Not phase 1. Do they?????
Phase 1 recriuts definately do not get single rooms. Thats ridiculous. And I've yet to meet anyone from any capbadge who had them in phase 2. You might get them on courses if you're lucky.
