Kevin jones saw his oppo killed in front of him, he was coxswaining a landing craft out in Ghanners when they came under contact, turns out it was a blue on blue that killed his oppo and nearly him, i think it was a 94 law from a commando unit that was in the area that mistook them for the enermy.

M1664. Those reports tell nothing of the Doorman being *text deleted**text deleted*s. Im a doorman,and with respect to these guys, 99% of people that get chuck out of big clubs,or bars are in the wrong and deserve it.

By chucked out it dosnt mean everyones pyhsically thrown out on their ask. As harsh as it is that they were out having rememberence drinks for an oppo, if someone was causing a scence or doing something they shouldnt have been,thats not the fault of the doorman.

I understand completly the mindset of guys comming back from tour, having worked with some myself.All quality blokes,willing to do anything for each other. Likewise most doorteams are like that, so if someone hits another doorman as that report said, be it a Royal Marine or not, its not going to end pretty whichever way it goes.

Shame that it resulted in a discharge though,thats too far *text deleted*.

I work as a doorman 3 nites a week in a club wher i liv, ive been in situations where we have had trouble with army lads etc.
Its always a tricky situation as like SamForrest said, door teams are very close and tightknit teams just like military lads, so it always ends up involving more then just the person who had been causing trouble, and neither side willing to back down. door staff usually come out on top on account of being sober and being used to the situation.

that suxx that it ended in the marines getting discharges over something that happened while they wer drunk tho, ive never held a grudge against a drunk person as they usually act out of charactor but is no excuse i suppose
. its *text deleted* be tough loosing mates on operation too. Does a conditional discharge mean they have a chance to save their career? or are they out?
