Hmmmm convenient !
And as he stated
If someone was to skip work to attend, would have been charged as AWOL thus subject to disciplinary action and possible time in military prison
The Brits is called the glass house ( or was in the 90's when I swang by that way )
Not the most pleasent of places to go !
But it's not as it was now
Thanks for that, explains a lot.
As Extralien says though.....where were the rest? I have known families of soldiers to be expected to follow the same kind of restrictions, but thats
usually partners and direct relatives. Maybe teh soldiers were under such strict orders not to attend, they passed it on to loved ones?
Can understand not wanting to go in the Glasshouse, if it's the unit nick, not a major thing, but if it's still the MCTC for the bigger things, i took
a few lads to Colchester prison and i wouldn't want to swap places for the world.
