Duty Hand

How exactly should soldiers be disciplined?

And what do you think of the methods mentioned in this article?

I'm wondering where discipline stops and bullying begins - because there is a line somewhere!
Thanks guys - you make some interesting points and I'm really glad I asked the question!

There are two kinds of discipline and two kinds of punishment.

Firstly there is the 'offence' against military laws and protocol, these are dealt with by either a Commanding Officers award or if the offence is serious enough, by Courts Marshal.

Secondly there is the 'offence' of letting your side down, this offence again are dealt with in one of two ways ....... extra training / duties handed out by (usually) NCO's. ............ 'beasting' is a punishment or teaching recruits to conduct themselves in a proper manner and carried out by the recruits own peers.

To say that bullying does not take place would be a nonsense, however that is up to the recruit and his / her mates to sort out privately. If the 'sorting out' is severe enough the bullying will cease.

Edit.
From reading the article it sounds to me that these two are trying to 'pull a fast one'.
