  • Slaves

    Martin Hamilton, 20, from Swords also wanted to join the army when he was young, but found it was not what he expected. “I’m getting out of here. You’re treated like slaves. My head is wrecked taking orders,” he said. “They treat you like shite, man. Fair enough taking orders, but give us a break.”
    My head is wrecked taking orders- Pte Hamiliton put down suppressive fire on that position so we can go up the flank and take it out

    Ah Jaysus man me head is wrecked from taking orders- can you not give us a break- your treating me me like shoite man-


    Among those who left was Kevin Lappin, 20, from Armagh, who had wanted to be in the army since he “was little” and joined as soon as he could.
    Yes he wanted to be a soldier ever since he was a kid in Armagh- he wanted it to so much that he even travelled down south- but he didnt want it enough to let a nasty man tell him to get down fucikng here


    one in three recruits in the featured platoon dropped out, with several complaining of poor treatment.
    Ahh poor likkle things did the nasty sawrgent not kiss you good night-

    Of the 40 who enlisted in the 75th recruit platoon in Gormanstown, only 27 completed.
    Fair play to that unit for implementing standards and driving the wasters out of the defence forces- it is impossible to get rid of some of the shite we get in- so the only option is to point out how uncomfortable Army life is

    And just in case some of those pansies who couldnt hack it are reading this

    You tried the Defence Forces and it was so tough you knew in your heart and soul you would never make it

    May that spineless selfish home sick thought stck with you to your dying day- Let you long remember the fact that you were not good enough for my Army-

    When your old and have a family and your kids ask you why your still working in mcdonalds remember to tell them the truth that you just were not good enough for the army

    Please resist the temptation to try and justify your failure by the fact that some corporal said **** to you or made you clean a room

    your failure is down to your severe absence of a spine

    You make me sick

      If you can't take a bollicking from a Cpl or "bad language" upsets you then don't join up.

      Were these people in nusery school or a convent from birth until the day they walked through the barrack gate?

      No loss to the DF whatever.

        At least the Navy will be getting a few more recruits.

          My Wife just pointed out

          Maybe its the interview process that needs to be looked at-

          Dont make me ever repeat this- but she may be right

          We are getting a huge selection of the Countries clown population in as recruits

          and we are getting some great recruits in- it really seems now that the interview is a formaility and the pt test is what decides who gets in and who doesnt

          We can very very easily train anyone to do a few press ups and a run

          but its extremely difficult to change the mind set of Michael Hamiliton who seems to be one of God's special little creatures- Bless him and his nasaly whinging give me everything the easy way soul

            Some of my favourite whines from recruits applying for discharge

            "The Corporal wouldn't leave me fall out for a fag."

            "My mother made me join to straighten me out." (Well done Mom )

            "I didn't know I'd have to stay here tonight, I've booked a taxi to take me home."

            "I don't like taking orders."

            "I just joined up for the school holidays to see what it's like."

            27 out of 40 isn't bad, I think we knocked a platoon down to 15 in Clonmel once. Did the interviewers try and get positive comments from the 27 who passed out or was it just a knock the army exercise.

              My concern would be that some spa with influence will see this as a failure in the system & will soften the training even further.

                      We could do with an interview to get into the RDF too. Some RDF troops are a complete liability and should never be handed live ammunition.

                        Hopefully there will be some balance. The main 'spin' I got from reading the article was everyone said F*** a lot and they had to change the broadcast time of the program as a result.

                        "Those who completed the 16-week training said it was the best thing they ever did. Mark Lister, 20, from Bray was one of those who took to army life, although he had a hard job convincing his parents it was a good career choice. "

                            Broadcast?

                            Programme?

                            Is it on tv?

                            What?
                            It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.
