The Army is Being Nicer to Recruits
Apparently, the Provisional wing of the British State has worked out that if it wants to recruit decent young men and women to stand behind a garden wall in Psychostan in armoured chickenwire for about a fourth of an MP's expense account, it has to be nicer to new recruits.
The Army Staff Training College is planning to 'motivate' the relevant starship cadets with a sense of the sort of Innere Fuhrung and feeling for the motherland that has happily made the Germans strong and peaceful enough to literally tilt at windmills. My understanding was that previous procedure, which seemed to work outside of the island of Ireland, South Africa, and Kenya, was to hang some meat and beer on a mannequin and get them to stab it whilst screaming until they associated the pleasant emotions with a job well done.
Here are some Slovenians who salute you, Tommy.
And yes I do know people who served, some of whom I admire deeply, in many Armies.
