Growing up on someone else’s time - Part One

September 15th, 2019

This episode contains information that some listeners may find distressing and a link to Lifeline counselling services is included below. 

Today's guest is Stewart. He quips that he did his growing-up in the army, at the Royal Military College of Duntroon. Because he had been a year ahead of his peers in high school, he had not yet turned seventeen when he was admitted into Duntroon. While he took well to the basic training, when his year-group returned to Duntroon, things turned sour as they were subjected to the now notorious process of bastardisation. This is his personal account of encounters with this system. 

The episode is in two parts; the first deals with his time at Duntroon, and the second follows his career afterwards.
