Something that has been on my mind now since 1987 (slow thinker). Twice in basic training I fell asleep on my feet, not talking about eyes shutting for a few moments here, but deep real sleep without loosing my balance at all. First occasion was in Pipingford Park (spelling?), getting briefed or bollocked as a section, but was woken up by the training fullscrew who did not bollock me at all. Secound time was on the main gate, 1 hour and 50 minutes in March. I initailly went in the nice heated sentry box, realised I would be asleep quickly so stood outside on the road and promptly fell asleep, best stag I ever did as woke up just in time to be relieved and go inside for a kip on a bed. Regardless of the "you put everyone at risk stuff" as its stating the obvious really. If I had been caught, fast asleep on my feet, not leaning on anything and in about 2 degrees C, what would be the discipline point of view. Yes, it was a fair cop if caught - however being asleep on youir feet, outside in the cold to me means Exhaustion, which could be a dam good mitigating factor. Would be nice to know after all this time.
