    ... or lack there of.

    I tried to Google it up but came up empty on all searches. Does anyone know if the Brits have a CoC for their military?

    I was watching the news this morning IRT the videos of the Brit Sailors/Marines confessing to being in Iranian waters.

    I was just wondering earlier if they showed any signs of coercion

    IMO, I think they were either coerced/convinced that if they do what they are told, they will get to go home or told they will be punished if they do not cooperate. I'm anxious to hear the after action reports on this once they are back in England.

    They are playing right along with the Iran Propaganda Machine.

    I know our CoC, we would only be giving our names, ranks and serial (socials).

    There are some british military in a class I'm taking right now, I will ask them as I am now curious as to if they have anything similar to our CoC.

    I asked the brits in my class,

    They said that they recieve training on what to do in the event of capture.
    Seems like it was pretty similar to ours as far not recieving better treatment for your actions as compared to fellow soldiers etc
    But that they are allowed to do whatever it takes to ensure that they all recieve better treatment IE not be tortured etc as long as it does not comprimise them.
    They said that it really doesn't matter that they admitted to being in iranian waters regardless of if it is true or not.
    I did not hear any specific document referenced as far as this training goes
    They said it was more likely that their marines had a lot more training in what to do and no do in situations like this than the captured navy would get.
