Going Commando - The Importance of Cleanliness

I must admit to watching last night's fly on the wall documentary on Channel 4 about the Royal Marines Commando School with my mouth open at certain points.

Aside from the fact, for no logical reason that I can determine, commandos are not allowed to wear any clothing at all in bed; there was also the fact that the young men had to be taught how to have a shower.

I appreciate that cleanliness in barracks and when on tour of duty is important, as it lessens the risk of infection and disease. I understand that this message needs to be drummed into the recruits.

However, what I was surprised at was the fact that the young men had to be taken to a shower block where they were given a live demonstration by one of their naked superiors as to how to shower in graphic detail right down to washing the foreskin and butt crack (pix-elated for the sensibilities of the viewing public).

Has it come to this, that the Nanny state has removed any vestige of parental input into a child's upbringing that young men now have to be shown how to shower themselves?

    Because what is adequate for day to day living is not good enough for a Royal Marine Commando.

    How can anyone criticize the training of the world’s most professional fighting force?

    You could have equally made a whimsical post that because they are taught how to march that they need to be instructed on how to put one foot in front of the other.

    By standardising even the most mundane of everyday tasks the recruits learn how to act together as a unit, and nothing is left to chance.

    These skills will keep them alive in the future and help ensure the safety of those that they are paid to protect. People like you and me.

    90% of all applicants to the armed forces are rejected, so the young men in the program have already proved themselves, they are already elite.

    The assertion that they need to be taught how to take a shower is both ignorant and insulting.

    Is this any worse than the NHS telling people how to wash their hands?
