This video is disturbing of course and it is also old but I must tell you that this stuff is pretty tame compared to what I have seen soldiers do to
each other over the silliest and most mundane of things.
A man caught stealing a hand held games consol is held down and has his hand broken with a steel floor buffer. Another man is so in despair of basic
infantry training he pays another man to break his leg in front of me (horrible).
Another man insults the regiment during a hell run called the “zig zags” so someone, an instructor runs up behind him and with a little help from
his friend’s beats the insulter to a near unconscious wreck to the point where his head is twice the size it should be.
A soldier so filled with hate for his instructor (corporal Lee) that on the range I am amazed to see two gouts of earth fly up at the instructors feet
as he runs down the side of the range. A check is done on ammunition and the culprit when found is almost castrated with a savage kick from hell.
A soldier cannot do the assault course anymore because he is dead on his feet so an instructor drags him to his feet calls him a “jacker” and then
beats him to a pulp before kicking and punching him over a quarter of the assault course. It turns out that the soldier could not continue because he
had suffered a spiral stress fracture that went from his ankle to his thigh and he was in a huge plaster cast for a long time after that.
I mentioned the dust cover is missing from my SA80 and an instructor tries to break my ankle after throwing gravel at speed under my helmet so as to
blind me. I was a second away from pushing through the safty and shooting him in the head – thankfully I have much more self control than these dogs
and it turned out that Corporal Lee (you pig) had been suffering PTSD from the Falklands war.
There are two lives in the military one that is fed to you via the media and a second that is feral and brutal and which is kept always out of sight.
In this video you get a little taste of the true nature of the beast but even then it is not given full vent, rather it seems almost sanitised.
If your face fits or if you can physically take care of yourself you are laughing, if it does not and you cannot, then you will enter a terrible world
and I have seen terrible things done to those that make little effort to play the game and fit in.
This video is not as bad as it really could have been and I do not mean to lessen the pain of those kids but really, they were able to walk away from
that beating and still make noise.
