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?
