Switzerland's military has pledged to investigate a hazing ritual in Bure in the north west of the country after a rookie soldier alerted the media to his humiliating treatment at the hands of his peers.

Aye, there looks to be an awfully fine line between a Swiss hazing and a Sunday School outing

Re: Eggshells on the menu in Swiss army ritual row

That is ridiculous! hahaha I've swallowed raw eggs, shell & all, as a simple dare with mates! I mean, hazing isn't as serious in Australia as it is in some places, like the US, but this story is pathetic!
Don't get me wrong, my brother-in-law left the army half way through his service here, as the way some of the people were treated was unbelievable. But this story is a joke!
