An increasing number of junior soldiers in my Corps are clocking up appalling disciplinary records. I suspect that this is also the case in other Arms and Services. 'Soldier's Crimes' we can all deal with. Idleness, dishonesty and unprofessionalism we cannot. Is it considered that the increased incidences of offences related to the aforementioned are as a result of weak NCO's, a lack of support from the officer hierarchy or is it because the UK has turned into a weak and selfish society?
