Dutch soldiers shouting ‘bang bang’ while firing weapons during ammo shortage

Dutch soldiers can’t pass the ammunition because of the military’s ongoing ammo shortage, according to a report.

The shortage on small caliber ammunition is not expected to be sorted out until 2016, says a Netherlands Ministry of Defense email leaked to RTL Nieuws.

Soldiers based domestically and on international missions are now apparently shouting “bang bang” during target practice to compensate for the lack of ammunition, Union for Civil and Military officials said.

“Even if you have no bullets, you have to train with your weapon,” the union’s president, Jean Debie, told RTL last week. “This is obviously disastrous for the morale of the military.” (...)

The German army went through that episode in the mid-90s already.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
