Whilst at the same time, are restoration of conscription in the form of National Service is something that I feel would do a great deal to improve this country.

What's more, within physical limitations, the women seem to give as much in the way of such things as skill and perseverance as the men, sometimes more.
I watch too and am shocked at the treatment of the soldiers its abuse . I'm in awe at the trainees and know the training is harsh yet they get through . How amazing are both Male and female

Add to that, this TV series is apparently nowhere near the hardships suffered in the actual training for SAS, SBS and SRS forces. They wouldn't allow such things on television, of course. The PC snowflakes would all have a heart attack.
