”You’re unsuited for the rage of war, so pack up, go home, you’re through..”

An officer cadet has been found dead in her room at Sandhurst military academy, police have said.

The unnamed 21-year-old was discovered on Wednesday at the academy in Berkshire.

It is understood she was spoken to after failing to return to her barracks following a party on the base over the weekend.

But aside from the minor disciplinary incident, there was no suggestion of further wrongdoing.

How does someone who can’t cope with a telling off for misbehaviour think she’s going to fare when the bullets and bombs are flying?

And what sort of army would we have if she lived?

    The ‘Queen’s Own Regiment of Snowflakes’ must have Putin quaking in his boots and Frau Merkel musing how differently it would all have turned out 80 years ago if that’s the best we could do.
    It would have saved her all the trouble of setting up the EU . . . .

      To paraphrase the Duke of Wellington “I don’t know what effect they will have upon the enemy, but, by God, they frighten me. …”

    It’s about wrinkles, moisturiser and lippy

    Gordon Bennett. But hey, the female Air Vice Marshal has approved it, innit.

    I liked the adverts shown on that old comedy programme back in the 90’s; where the voice-over stated ” Travel to foreign lands, meet new people: and learn to kill them!”

      I used to like the one in the Eighties where some African army thug was getting aggressive, until the British Army man took off his sunglasses. It was supposed to be impressing upon the viewer the fact that the modern Army was all about ‘respecting cultural differences’ like the need for eye contact.

      I just kept watching in the hopes the African would receive a well-deserved rifle butt to the kisser!
