So many threads and posts going around that some of the airtroopers of today are not a patch on those of old, so thinking that maybe we were wrong I would like to pose the question with some examples. Is this regarded as team building or bullying. Every nig from any sqaudron was always paraded at the regt bar and given the most vulgar topshelfs that you could think of. Spit, pubes, musscles, cheese(not bought),alcohol, fag butts with ashtray. He was "made" to attempt his drink, if he did he was one of the lads(till next time), he was then put in the toilet to throw up and sometimes kep in the bar. If he did not attempt the drink he had let the side down and was looked upon with disgust. Nig Olympics, this was a particular favourite of Hq sqn(1) as we always got the majority of the new batch, always happened in summer during a block bbq(now that was fun), They would race each other round the blocks naked, in and out of the stadt bins, shotgunned and just generally abused. is that wrong?? Nig Bowling: A favourite of 661 sqaudron, they even used a proper bowling ball and real people, there must have been injury's surely a 661 vet will let me know?? Wet weather starts: Whose turn is it, you guessed it, duty nig. Beer and blo: Says it all, "what do you mean you have never been with a whore before" Got a loan till payday?? I am sure there are other examples, would it be allowed now, would these young un's drop us in it. Was it team building or was it just pre medidated bullying??
