Student boot camp 2

November 11, 2005

The problems of poor recruit retention and bullying in the Army have become apparent only since the 1990s. My first career was in the Army. At one point I served at Blackdown Barracks, now called Deepcut. I remained in the Territorial Army until 1992. Bullying was not an issue in the Army from the 1960s to the 1980s. The instructional staff (of which I was part) performed their duties as prescribed in Lew Hardy's recommendations. This "new manoeuvre" has already been "invented".
