DFRT WRA ADF 2014 – Decision

3 Nov 2014

The full decision of the Tribunal is here

It is worth reading to understand the process, the hearing and the basis upon which the decision is made.

Startling to realise the troops dependence on their Government’s consideration of fairness. 

As Lord Tennyson wrote in his poem,
The Charge of the Light Brigade: “…Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die:..”


Rudyard Kipling in his poem,

Tommy Atkins “…..For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!”
