Why are Gnrs on OPs being treated like cnuts

#1
I was approached by the concerned relative of a Gnr in Iraq the other day who seemed to be quite distressed that his relation wasn't very happy and was thinking of jacking when he got back. It was something to do with the way he and his mates were being treated. It sounded like they were doing the normal long hours of stag, QRF, frameworks that normally go on but then in their down time getting beasted over irrelivant and meanial jobs leaving the morale at rock bottom.

Lets face it I know what you lot are like on the bull side of things after being shouted at by a BSM for looking like a tramp after spending 17 out of 24 days at BATARRSE without a vehicle, thumbing lifts, begging for food and water. So why do you lot feel the need to do it when the blokes are working flat out as it is....is it just an empire building thing?

Tell the cocerned relative that he should be grateful his relation didnt join the RLC he wouldnt have made it out of training!

"normal long hours of stag, QRF, frameworks that normally go on but then in their down time getting beasted over irrelivant and meanial jobs leaving the morale at rock bottom"

Sounds pretty normal, maybe he saw the "Frank" adverts before joining up?

Who are you? Dear fcuking Deidre? In that case maybe you can help me............There's this bloke from some chipshop unit called D&D's who's the unnoficial "voice of the Tom". He's under the impression that blokes who are fcukin gipping admin cases shouldn't get beasted while on ops. Is he a cnut or not?

god forbid you move out of your 9-5 comfort zone,on an operational tour,never,what next crows getting duties instead of every fcuking weekend off

They get paid for it, or would they like some of the NCOs to do the menial jobs for them. Tell the guy to get a grip of himself.

Gunners....... BAH!

'Why are Gnrs on Ops being treated like cnuts?' - Odd that you need to ask.

Thanks guys for your comments, yeah you are right....perhaps I've grown too soft in my old age.....almost time to turn to the right, gain height and take three paces.........so, what do I really care...each disgruntled Gunner is another 10 that walk away from the careers office when recruiting is so hard these days.....so the answer is....no I don't really give a flying fcuk cos we're quicker into action than you lot anyway!

PS....GQ - He was an NCO and his patrol commander was as well!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The main things that cause soldiers to drop out of training is:

1 Homesickness (not that they'll admit it - I will though - 16 years old - on the phone to my mum - blubbing like a girl. But my section commander and CSM talked me out of it - 23 years later - I'm still here! and it wqas the best bit of advice I have ever had.

2 Girlfriends....need I say anymore, especially if it's the first love/shag syndrome....You'll always hear the same old thing...my girlfriends dad will give me a job...Yeah till she bins them for someone else then it's I wish I hadn't left!
[/b]perhaps I've grown too soft in my old age


Or perhaps you were always soft?


ps

the phone to my mum
Is she still servicing blokes and serving pints in the drovers arms? :lol:

Ur a TUBE

So let me get this right.. the OPs are complaining because they have to do work AFTER theyve been on patrol in Iraq? and it was an NCO complaining? Jesus.....Take it this guy has never been away before in his life. Still im sure hes got better things to do with his time like go to the bar and get bladdered, or pop down town and have a look round the shops. It maybe **** but at least the tour will fly-by.
