We had a lad called Kieron who said he'd been advised by a Magistrate that he should join up or he'd be looking at doing time, he was a tall skinny ****** who raved on about being one of the Millwall firm, he had a couple of run ins with a nice amiable lad and it kicked off early doors on a Sunday.
Although I disliked another lad who was ex 9 Squadron and who'd been on my PRC he admirally piped up mid row and suggested they go into the heads and do it properly, both agreed and for the next 2 minutes we got to watch (whilst crammed round the door and windows) an 18 year old former 6th former from Scarborough punch the ******* biscuits out of a supposed top boy whilst we cheered like food starved chimps!
It depends what ATR you're at. At Pirbright two recruits caught fighting would be locked up by the RP staff until Friday evening when they would be issued with a studded leather ensemble and given a choice between various rusty and inventive weapons. They are marched down to the drill square where the whole ATR is formed up around the "Thunderdome", once the two recuits enter the CO is carried onto the square on a golden throne pulled by exquisitely shaved and oiled up recruits, he then delivers the following speech:
Listen all! This is the truth of it. Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And that was damn near the death of us all. Look at us now! Busted up, and everyone talking about hard rain! But we've learned, by the dust of them all... Pirbright learned. Now, when men get to fighting, it happens here! And it finishes here! Two men enter; one man leaves.
Then the two crows go at it, till only one is left standing.
I believe other ATRs have similar setups, Winchester has a full Roman arena complete with tigers while Glencourse employ something similar to The Running Man where the two recuits are chased by members of the DS.
Or, you might get a bollocking and some sort of formal punishment.
No - There is a health and safety directive on this.
HSE believes in firm but fair enforcement of health and safety law. This should be informed by the principles of proportionality in applying the law and securing compliance; consistency of approach; targeting of enforcement action; transparency about how the regulator operates and what those regulated may expect; and accountability for the regulator’s actions. These principles should apply both to enforcement in particular cases and to the health and safety enforcing authorities’ management of enforcement activities as a whole.
One floor polishing bumper to be used per corridor - Operatives must wear masks to mitigate the fumes of wax. More than one polishing bumper per corridor increases the risk of wax fumes which may lead to watering eyes, headaches and facial irritation. The fumes may exacerbate the onset of asthma creating irritation in the lungs.
