  3. Well it's hard to criticise the parents in their grief but clearly murder is not the word. Doesn't make it any better though. I'm sure there are several threads on this already.
  4. I remember reading the MCA report on this when it was published. It made very scary reading indeed. A rigid raiding craft, loaded with a bunch of cadets, with a GPMG strapped on the bow and an unbalanced engine. Then add to that putting a young kid in an assault troop lifejacket, designed to keep a squaddie and kit afloat. Then let the boat coxswains take the boats out without any reference to the weather forecast, and without a dedicated safety boat, relying on being able to take the load of one boat across the other two. All in all a recipe for disaster.

    I only hope that the recommendations are taken onboard by the ACF
