Yeah no kidding...like my Dad's bush pants falling down in front of the Commandant in Shilo while he was on CO's Orders...was wearing a size too big and had his web belt on, CO asked the RSM why he was wearing it, RSM ordered him to remove it, despite Dad's suggestion against - this resulted in a number of more days of pack drill added to what he was already about to receive...I recall, in the British Army, the unit used to publish a list of 'Prevalent Offences' along with Part 1 Orders.
In it was contained a litany of horrors, much like you have described, ostensibly as a dire warning to others.
It didn't stop subsequent bollocks from being dropped, of course, but they made for good reading. I recall hearty guffaws echoing down the hallways when the tales of fresh crimes came out each month.
Someone should write a book....
