IMPUDENCE AND ABUSE. Empty
PostSubject: IMPUDENCE AND ABUSE.   IMPUDENCE AND ABUSE. EmptyThu Apr 18, 2013 9:13 pm

"AN army medical officer lately had occasion to pass a young soldier as fit Ior foreign service, and immiiediately afterwards received a letter from a person purporting to be his mother, whiclh for downright impudence is unique. It hails from Ireland, and is a wretchedly illiterate production from a lady who says, '" I was not trained in a college, but am a doctoress by profession, and there is not a doctor that could tell me better than I know myself." She wants to know how any medical man could have passed "my dear boy suffering from cronic Bronchitis; indeed, be is more Dead than alive, and you would be doing your right duties were you to order him into hospital * " further, " he will never live the voyage out, and my life will go to, so that there will be double crime to answer for.I do not think think the Zulus would be guilty of such an act," etc. She finally expresses a hope she will get a 'satisfactory" answer, or, of course, she will know the reason why. It is needless to say there wero no real grounds for such a wild effusion; but, as our correspondent points out, this letter indicates how little real respect is accorded to the army medical officer-the result of the unfair and disparaging treatment he constantly receiving at the hands of men who ought to be his comrades in the service".

Again, nothing much has changed!
I could tell you many stories of both reviving civvies and serviemen, only for them, or their nearest and dearest, the moment they come to their senses, to try and punch me or another team member in the chops.
But, it is not to be taken personally! Very Happy
