Former teenage military cadets have told an Australia child abuse inquest they were raped and forced to have sex with each other during their training.
More than 100 people have contacted an investigating commission to report abuse between the 1960s and 1980s.
They told the inquiry that “brutal and humiliating” strikes were often part of initiation rites.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was set up in 2013.
Entries have been made by thousands of people since it began its work investigating the maltreatment of children in institutions across Australia.
Much of its recent investigation has focused on abuse by Roman Catholic priests in the 1970s and ’80s.
