Yeah I don’t think anyone doubted your service or experience.... but it’s nice to see your lovely sensitive side. Nursing Corps I assume?Thank you for your detailed response. Although I am a pongo I have spent over 10 years with 3 Cdo Bde so am well aware of the level of banter used in day to day life.
My point is that the young lad just posted to say he wanted to join the RM and then the SBS...why not? The SBS are what gets a lot of younger lads interested in joining and while only a few will reach this pinnacle, I would never discourage anyone from shooting for the stars. Having completed a number of arduous courses but ploughing selection (really badly) I would encourage anyone to start their journey early and give it a shot.
You mention holding inappropriate behaviour to account, agreed, but what inappropriate behaviour has he displayed. A bit of naivety perhaps, but this was unintentional and in my view did not deserve the numerous sarcastic comebacks.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, this is mine.
When a young user makes flippant comments about the death of serving bods it’s just not cricket. I wonder if you’ve also been subjected to rude PMs from the user? Anyway I love a good white knight. One chased me away once from visiting an old marine with my scythe.
