Two Royal Marine corporals played a Deal or No Deal-style game handing out degrading and painful punishments to junior comrades, a court martial has heard.
Cpl Philip Beer and Cpl Danny Foster oversaw a nightly gathering of their 43 Commando troop called “family time”, during which they punished “professional failings”.
Punishments included being hung upside down and whipped, being shaved naked and being forced to commit sex acts to gay pornography.
Portsmouth Military Court, heard the method of deciding punishment was based on the Noel Edmonds’ television game show, with members of the troop forced to pick box numbers, with each containing a punishment.
One of the troop would then play ‘The Banker’, offering alternative forfeits to the marines which they could swap for the ones they had chosen.
