I was charged with being late on guard by the WO2 orderly officer at SEE in 1974.I wonder how it can be recorded on the PNC unless it is a recordable offence in criminal law where DNA, Fingerprints and photograph are taken.
Some things such as AWOL which soldiers get banged up for in military nick are not offences in civilian law.
I always thought that Admonishment meant that tecnically you were guilty but the moral right was yours.
I wasn't he held the guard mounting 10 minutes early as wanted elsewhere and everybody else was already there.
I was told to be in front of the CSM at Naafi Break and to bring someone as my escort so I grabbed my mate who was sitting next to me in class. Duties were generally assigned by class so he had been present.
I was a sprog, the Army was too good for me to care about a minor fine so I went with the flow....................
that is right up to sentencing when my escort blurts out what really happened.
CSM accused us both of rehearsing the case which we both denied whilst I secretly thought my mate was an idiot.
A bit of harrumphing and I was admonished whilst the WO2 was told to remain behind.
@Stonker whilst I have some laughable memories of the RMP my overwhelming sense of them was professional competence and humour. Mostly where they screwed up was where they were sprogs.
