I hear anguished screams from some chaplains who had worked hard and kept their noses clean for years only to have suddenly found themselves demoted several places in promotion boards to make way for people against whom they had never had to compete. Does anyone a) Know what it is all about and how it is supposed to work? b) Is it, as more than one disgruntled padre has put it, a redressable change in his Terms and Conditions of Service? c) Does anyone know what is going on at the Puzzle Palace? There seems to be a great reluctance to talk about the whole business or indeed to commit anything to paper.
