Regina v Price and another [2014] EWCA Crim 229; [2013] WLR (D) 86

‘The standard of care required to avoid the service offence of negligent performance of a duty, contrary to section 15(2) of the Armed Forces Act 2006, was to be measured against the standard to be expected of the reasonable serviceman having similar training, knowledge and experience as the accused. A subjective consideration of a defendant’s skills or weaknesses had no place in the objective judgment whether the defendant had reached the appropriate standard of care.’
