Regiment soldier disciplined

A Bermuda Regiment soldier was disciplined after an assault on a fellow soldier during a training exercise in North Carolina.

US Marine Corps Police were called in after the victim returned to training immediately after receiving treatment for wounds described as “superficial”.

Regiment Adjutant Major Ben Beasley said in a statement tonight: “The Regiment demands the highest standards of professional and personal conduct from its personnel and we take any allegations of assault very seriously.”

The incident happened on Thursday morning at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps base.

Maj Beasley said: “As is normal practice, the appropriate local law enforcement agency — in this case the US Marine Corps Police — were called in. Their officers carried out a full investigation and decided the matter would be best dealt with internally.

“The soldier concerned has already been dealt with by Commanding Officer Lt Col Brian Gonsalves and appropriate disciplinary action has been taken. It would be inappropriate to comment further.”
