Camp Life

Spend weeks of months in the jungle, and camp life is something which is important in keeping morale high. You can’t ever expect the men to be fuelled with the zeal that stirs you, but you do need them to be on your side. Give specific men chores, but hold regular leisure activities. It was a good idea to buy a football, for instance, before leaving the town. Football helps the men to relax and to bond. It’s all about having fun. I’m a believer in giving small amounts of fire water each night, as well. It’s a perk which can later be removed if necessary. I understand completely why the navy always gave each man a nip of whisky. It’s something they look forward beyond all else.
