Disciplinary measures in Allied armies

Post by Hama » 05 Jan 2018 22:36

Just wanted to ask if anyone could share what they know regarding steps taken in some of the Allied armies (e.g. British, US, Canadian, etc.) to deal with soldiers who had recurring disciplinary issues?

I'm curious to know what the thresholds were with conscripts who just refused to conform despite punishments, and also given that it was a wartime situation whether these militaries would just end up dishonorably discharging soldiers after a certain number of infractions or if there was some kind of penal battalion system in place where chronically insubordinate/unruly recruits would be sent to get at least some use out of them for the war effort?

Although fiction based on the novel "Hill of Sand" by Ray Rigby, the film "The Hill" might be worth seeing. It's about a british military prison in North Africa during WW2. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hill_(film)
