Beyond The Fence Line | Documentary Idea
March 31, 2013 - Due to the current climate and the emphasis on promoting the British armed forces, recent documentaries have shown how life is in the armed forces on land sea and in the air.
What they haven't shown is the real life, the life that goes on inside the base, beyond the fence.
I am sure most people reading this would think that it is rosey, free medical care, free dental care, cheap accommodation and cheap food. Well it isn't like that at all. Here are a few facts for you.
- There have been at least three suicides and a lot more attempted suicides in the last ten years.
- Two people have been given a large sum of money after leaving on medical grounds which are a direct result of neglect on the Armed Forces side.
- There have been an increase of bullying and harassment complaints for two years running.
You may think that these facts are trivial, and could happen anywhere not just in the armed forces. I took these facts from ONE base in the United Kingdom.
This situation needs to be publicised to show the real lifestyle of those people Beyond the fence line.
