What?

Presumably you just unroll your dossbag, get in it and fall asleep. Why do you need regulations for that? Count yourself lucky you've got a roof.

No, it's not his duty to get you a bed, you drip. It's your duty to put up and shut up.

Serious point: Are you a woman? If there was a split-arrse amongst you, it would be interesting, however, to see what she/they got. I remember Bessbrook Mill once upon a time; it only had two baths and about 600 blokes. Along comes a Slack Adj and one becomes 'female ablutions' - 600 blerks share the other.

Are you a Mover?

It is a commendable and necessary trait to put up with hardships and adversity when required. It is a disgrace if personnel are expected to kip on gym floors in UK peacetime. Like all other regulations, accommodation regulations are meant to be obeyed and not subject to cost-cutting exceptions based on the willingness of the troops to "put up and shut up".

Anyone without accommodation should get a Form 95 from the guardroom or clerks at the unit where accommodation is required to say there is no accommodation. Take said Form 95 to your own unit and get them to sort it out. If nothing is available then it will be a hotel and bed-and-breakfast on rates. Fight for - and enjoy - the occasional perk rather than getting sh@fted so the MoD can spend more on chairs and less on suitable accommodation for the troops.

A couple of days??? stop dripping you spoilt remf. :evil:
So it's not just me then?

This is most extraordinary, a soldier(?) whinging about this sort of thing, but I suppose the title 'Whytry' is a bit of a giveaway. Get outside and dig yourself a trench - Home Sweet Home.

It matters that we can give you a balanced reply based on fact and not emotion. If you had to make do for a couple of nights due to there being no available beds then these things happen. If however you are to be billeted in the gym for a week or more then there needs to be an explaination. Is it an exercise you are on? Is it a vehicle move with a weekend stopover? If you don't impart facts then how the hell do you expect people to assist you.

In the late eighties as part of a travelling installation team it was the in thing to suggest to units that they didn't have any suitable accommodation and get you chit signed in the orderly room.
The home unit then paid your claim at a daily rate above the cost of a gezzy.

Felt a cnut when the teeth arms were on the training area slumming it in prep for GW1, but consolled myself with a jaegershnizel and a few half litres.

If it was winter, they must have thought you were freezing!

Just had a trawl through the forum and (now correct me if i'm wrong) It looks to me that you are attatched to the white helmets in some capacity and were engaged in a show somewhere. Now your spitting your dummy out because the local OC wouldn't bow down and grant you accomodation for the duration of the show. Now with you having some sort of superiority complex you now think you were hard done by and should be compensated for such attrocities.

Get a life you saddo
