Naval Injuries

Rosina, I know you are a lawyer and are no doubt all clued up on these sort of things. But fer gawds sake, surely you must look at some of these cases and see that they are just not right. :evil:

I repeat from a previous post

Didn't say the law was right, just said that they used the law.

Which is why you will find that I do not do either crim or civil lit.

PS: Have just heard that she actually hurt her ankle the previous day playing hockey, but did not go to the sick bay to have it looked at. This no doubt weakened the ankle area so why did she not declare it. Again, it sucks big time.

RANT OVER.

Interesting! Of course she presumably didn't go to the Sickbay because she might then potentially have been put on a charge of 'self-inflicted injury' - or does this only apply to sunburn? If things have changed and she would not seriously have faced being charged with a self-inflicted injury, then can these allegations be substantiated as evidence? If so they should be brought to the attention of the Court, if a later Appeal is made by the MOD. Quantum could then be VERY different!

No always been sh1t at football based my style on the ARSEnal!!!

Rosin,, not loooking for compo, see my injuries as a perk of the job! Something the modern generation cant comprehend me thinks
 
[quote="Always_a_Civvy......she might then potentially have been put on a charge of 'self-inflicted injury'[/quote]

It has never been the case that injuries suffered in Service sporting events have been seen as self-inflicted, indeed they are fully attributable, but only if reported. There would, no doubt, have been some peer pressure to complete the assault course, but she would not have been the first person to lower herself gracefully to the ground and carry on with the evolution.
 
Self inflicted injuries [sunburn] poor old[name withheld for legal reasons plus he is six foot ten] with the Mick Jagger lips all cracked due to excessive sun and the lads had to keep telling him all those funnies. To laugh and cry all at the same time such joy.

Whatever happened to the para reg sgt who dropped hard and ended in a wheelchair and was just on the borderline for his big pension in a few months time?? I read some wonder decided there was no exception to the rule. Going back a while I may add. Having said that does anything ever change.

Two grand for industrial deafness for tinnitus and deafness I was awarded and a "young" policewoman was awarded 250,000 for slight hearing loss for wearing the ear piece. I had to pay the GMWU a hundred for fighting my case. Perhaps if I had gone to a real solicitor I could have claimed more.

Micktrick who I worked alongside claimed more and was awarded more due to having never served in HM forces. According to the knob appointed by the glorious GMWU.
 
Those are all examples of real injustice where damages ought to be awarded. It is often the case that those with the most clout get the biggest payout. Had you been a cute looking nurse and got the media on your side you'd be bound to get more money than an ugly squaddie who's had his foot blown off by a landmine. It's the kind of injustice the British public just accept - they are more interested in writing to their MPs about other matters, such as getting financial help to restore their local church or funds to provide better amenities for children. I often wish the public got to see more of the disabilities of service life during the otherwise sanitised Rembrance Day parades. It would be more productive to get school children involved with working helping injured ex-servicemen than some of the more cushy community work they do - and provide a future generation who will take the issue to heart. We Brits are apt not to complain in public when things go badly for us, all that stiff upper lip stuff. This of course conveniently allows the powers that be to ignore the welfare of ex-service personnel whio have been physically or psychologically damaged. It is this reluctance to complain, this reluctance to protest more forcefully, to publicise how poorly you lot are treated and to make sure that potential recruits are aware of this before they volunteer - this is what is needed. Start affecting the numbers volunteering and embarrassing the politicians the public's esteem and the politicians will start having to address the problems, as they had to during WW2 and in the aftermath. Well that's my view anyway.

End of Rant!

Steve.
 
When they placed my action station into the 4.5 gunbay on Cherry B during fireex in the 70s - the gunbay captain (the ONLY dabtoe in there - the rest were S&S!) he decided to operate the shell hoist, in the process of which he lopped the end of my thumb off so it was hanging by a thread of flesh and bone showing after they got the af glove off (ouch and a few expletives he did receive ....), all they gave me was a Hurt Certificate.

I wonder what I'd have received in compo these days ??
 
If you dressed like Rincewind in his Wrens outfit Whitemouse, you'd make a mint from the Sun; as a hairy matelot, perhaps £250, hopefully in real not Monopoly money. :evil:

Actually I have just checked up. If it was a criminal injury then according to the CICA website (Tariff calculator), assuming that you lost the end of one thumb and that you received 100% damages, the award would be in Band 9 and entitle you to £4400.

That's a good point Whitemouse. Just out of interest, what does S&S mean and why would a Seaman Officer be any less compitent at gunnery if he's done the Long Course at Whaley? I presume he did the Long Course? :?

S&S means SILLY AND STUPID after the pongo SAS who take all the credit when the frog squad do all the work. Any soft shite can go in with guns blazing like John Wayne.

Now I see the SBS have merged with the SAS and have a new badge etc.

Did anybody tell the frog squad or is it all a secret??? Does the frog squad get more pay for looking after and training those below them.

The Hurt Cert is your proof of Service attributability, so if you didn't get compensation or an enhancement to your pension, try it now.

I think you will actually find that S&S means 'Supply and Secretariat' which in laymans terms would have meant an SA or Steward would have been in the gunbay as they were often used as 'shell lifters' as opposed to shirt lifters, which is a whole new ball game, quiet literally. :oops: :lol:

I hear you and echo the sentiment. It would be great, but it's never going to happen. :(
