CDRILS – Values and Standards of the British Army
Courage – The courage to do the right thing, to not look the other way when you know something is wrong. Even if it is not the accepted attitude of your peers or superiors.
Discipline – Discipline to control your fear to make the difficult choices which face you.
Respect for others – To treat others respectfully. To make those around you a priority.
Integrity – Being honest with yourself and others. The integrity to say what must be said.
Loyalty – Looking after your comrades and putting them first. Loyalty to a team however does not mean you cover up illegal or immoral activity.
Selfless commitment – Teamwork. Putting yourself at risk for others> risking death, injury or even liberty to do what is right.
Standards must be lawful – All soldiers are subject to law wherever they are. International law, Law of armed conflict, Local law,
Appropriate – Honesty. Putting others first. Teamwork. Professionalism. Control alcohol. No Drugs. Control debt. No media.
*** If you follow these values/standards your superiors will victimize you, harass you, hang you out to dry. If you try to speak out you or protect yourself you will be gagged, submitted to trial, and imprisoned. ***
This is the price of Courage, Discipline, Respect for others, Integrity, Loyalty and Selfless commitment.
Ask your own conscience if what’s happening is right.
Because “Just following orders” stopped being an excuse in 1949.
No matter how noble your intentions.
Private Joe Glenton
