    Oh deep joy! Looks like i leave violent drunks behind in redditch in september then move to pomey to more violence.

    Its shame that their reputation is being taken into dispute though.

    Mod Mode:

    As the investigation into this is ongoing, and it is likely that those involved may be RR members, or known to them, please keep opinions in check.


    Anyway, my thoughts are with Kyle's family, friends and shipmates. RIP...

    As this is subject to ongoing investigation involving naval service personnel all to note the board policy on related commentary.
    What exactly is the benefit of doubt?

    The Pompey News has named the victim in the follow-up article here:

    My condolences to Kyle's family, friends and colleagues.

    In line with what SPB and Karma have already said, please avoid making any ill-judged posts. This incident is tragic enough as it is.

    RIP young man and so sad to hear of this.

    Walkabout has been a bad place for a long time and I believe it was close to being closed down last year due to the amount of fights and general trouble in there. I have often told my youngest daughter NOT to frequent it with any of her friends.
    The communications branch is the finest in the Royal Navy which in turn, is the finest service in the world.
