"HATE-TRAINING" IN BRITISH ARMY

LONDON, May 23

'"Hate-training" in the British Army is being stopped by General Sir Bernard Paget, Commander-in-Chief of the Home Forces. This is revealed in a letter from General Paget which was read at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland by the Moderator, Dr. J. 11. Cockburn, who wrote to the War Office recently protesting against such training.

General Paget states that he is writing to all the army commanders against the use of strong language, particularly in battle schools, as a means of urging students to greater efforts, and also against the attempt to produce hate during training. "Such an attitude is foreign to the British temperament," he states. "Officers and non-commissioned officers must be made to realise the difference between building up artificial hate and building up a true offensive spirit combined with will power which will not recognise defeat."
