30-20 years ago maybe. I was in the regulars over ten years ago and it certainly wasn’t the norm.I might be wrong but if this was the case like 10 years ago or something when he joined they Could have been a bit more leniant? Again, I’m probably wrong but just asking
This doesn’t seem too bad. Bit Chad yea but it’s not ego boosting attention seeking.I’m not sure but I’ve linked his ytall his vids about him Talking about training have been deleted and this is his second channel
Same. I’d full on wrap, rather take a good nights kip in my bag for the oncoming free phys session.I can't imagine anything worse than having served for years, left and then come back to start at ROP all over again. That's why I'll be thinking long and hard before leaving because there's no way in hell I'd pass a kit muster anymore
Take those press releases with a pinch of salt.Looking back I’d say there was some degree of bullying at times. Certain training teams, or individuals, who terrorised their nods. They were always found out and moved on. As a sprog going into a fighting company it was quite intimidating. You had to prove yourself quickly, knuckle down, do the job and you were accepted. Those that were found wanting sometimes had a hard time from the old hands. I didn’t think of it as bullying at the time, but I guess it was. I got through training with an injury that meant I had trouble running when I first got to a fighting company. One Cpl took a dislike to me because of it. He’d give me every gash detail, put me on duty all the time and instead of changing the gate guard every hour keep me there for 4 hours at a time. I kept my head down, did my job and got myself Uber fit. Thankfully I got on with everyone else in the Company, and he moved on.
Lads have banter, strong words, and there is the chain of command, but bullying is not tolerated now.
This link is about an incident at 42 at the tail end of 2014. Blokes lost their jobs because of it. Each trained rank on here will have witnessed something similar I’m sure, and will have their own opinions. The important thing about it though is how incidents such as this are perceived and dealt with. Bully’s have no place in The Corps.
I think the transcripts from the court martial and comments by the Judge Advocate and prosecuting barrister Lt Col V Phillips are more telling than anything printed in The Sun.Take those press releases with a pinch of salt
Which is why I said that those of us that have been at these types of booze ups have our own opinions. Bearing in mind that 2 years later Rich Melia got his job back....Take those press releases with a pinch of salt.
I know personally of an incident that was blown out of proportion, lads were manipulated into making statements without representation.
Good, hard working Lads ended up being kicked out because of the press, and the associated person was a compulsive liar.
what is his YouTube called?It’s nowhere near as bad as the RLC driver thag posts videos like he’s some kind of underwater knife fighting, jap slapping ninja. That induces instant gagging, near vomiting reactions. It’s so cringey. Especially when he’s telling lads they need to buy a jet boil and a camelback day sack for basic training.
Now he really does need a slap.

"with rank comes responsibility"
