Integrity (n.) A quality that all officers and NCOs possess in abundance until they make a career threatening fuck-up, at which point it goes right out of the window and they revert to CYA.


The hard right over the easy wrong.

Also one of the great clich├ęs when the DS, noting that something awfully bad has happened, asks 'OK, integrity question: di you do it, Cotgrove?'. As a rule, answering yes will get you a punishment and the DS' silent, slight grudging respect, while answering no will get you and all your mates a punishment and the DS' eternal hatred. There's a right answer to this one.
