Brilliant, and as it should be! Years ago when I was a minnion at an airline I got hauled over the coals because I put a Chelsea pensioner in 1st Class (Proper one with private compartment and sleeper beds etc). My answer was that he deserved it - no explanation and no intention of doing so! Never heard another thing.

I'm afraid that's called "collective responsibility."
Something drummed into everyone's head from day 1 of being a serviceman.


[Rant on]
Yeah, sort of like Kindergarden, keep treating the rank and file as if they are not mature enough to do the right thing, but always err on the side of they will always do the wrong thing.

It's called treating people as adults, and yes I know this "collective responsibility" thing, but it just burns my ass as it's a "cop out", and lazy punishment...too easy to just tell everyone, "well a few lads broke the rules so to punish them, we are just going to implement a new policy and have it so that, that establishment is off limits to all serving personnel.

Sort of stereotyping all service people as being bad apples, and that's how the public perceives the rank and file.

Used to be flogging was a form of punishment for the whole fleets benefit, now thank god it's no longer used, but the point is and was, that the person being flogged for whatever crime was a de facto "example" to the rest of the crew..."screw up and that's you on the mast", but in today's PC world it's easier to blanket punish, and all that does is raise the resentment factor, not at the individuals who caused this in the first place, but the desk types who are afraid to mete out individual punishment so harsh that others will think twice before making absolute assholes of themselves..and that serves no purpose at all...[/Rant Off]

Depends where your custom is based
If you need custom then bar only those that caused the problem

If you do not need custom from those types then bar the lot

Once bitten twice shy, if you can afford it!

We do not know the "FULL" story
If the local barracks were using it as a brothel getting rat asrsed and wrecking the joint AND you can afford to miss the custom

Then no need to take sympathy for someone who fell off a landrover and broke his wrist
He has been tarred with the same brush unfortunatley
Time the commanding occifer sorted his troops out

Most garrison towns have the accept and non accept public houses and hotels.

Even in Plymouth, you had pubs that were occifer only, and Jack not welcome (Jack did not want in anyway) Jack welcome to come in spend thosands of pounds and wreck the joint, and some No dogs or sevicemen allowed

Whilst I am ex service, I am truely thankfull that my landlord is a non accept, well most get in but not in squads of ten and wreck the place like next door

I think it is wrong that a manager is dismissed his post for something that MS Ali BEGUM did Whilst he was washing up, doing the ironing or cleaning the toilets

In my day you had to be a Lt Cdr or travelling on your own in a sleeper. The travelling alone in a sleeper one was the result of an officer I knew being propositioned in a second class twin sleeping berth. Commodore Clyde complained bitterly to MOD about it and the rules were changed, later extended to the lower deck as well if I remeber correctly.
 
Would it have made a difference if he had been propositioned in a 1st Class compartment :wink: Such flimsly door locks on those trains!
Let's face it would anyone want a 2nd class anything, let alone that.

Of course then as a mere Lt he would not have got to look inside a 1st Class sleeper berth then. At least in a 1st Class berth no one has the 'right' to strip of in your compartment as this bloke did, if I remeber correctly taken to the guards van in a state of undress and handed over to the plods at Carlisle

So when did stripping off become a problem? jolly Jack has done it for years, in Bars, Clubs, Trains, Planes and Boats and even at times in bedrooms, though in bedrooms he is normally found in the morning fully booted and spurred lying on top of the bed. :w00t:
 
My best, was flying from RAF Stanstead
I was booked in a sharing room for early morning flight as

RS J McHammocklashing and crashed out early with lots of drink and readiness for early morning flight to GIB

Early morning call for flight, my companion When I awoke was a

MRS Xxxxx from Newcastle :)

I do not recall who was the most shocked

Looks as if the outrage bus (ARRSE term) has had a steering gear failure and the thread looks as if it has now run its course.
