    The trouble with this sort of thing is that your average squaddie doesn't have much to compare things against. He's never had to look after himself and doesn't really know much about the world beyond the wire. Therefore he takes the good for granted and only sees the fuckabout factor.

  8. It's not hard to see why morale in the army is dropping.

    The old "see the world" bit is gone, unless you class a series of successive, middle eastern shitholes as "the world"

    Almost all of the good postings have gone, the entire Armed forces are getting smaller and smaller with less funding, the tempo of operations hasn't reflected that meaning, in some cases, longer tours and, in most cases more frequent tours.
    Throw in the spam jobs like the fastball Olympic security gig and the mass redundancies and there isn't an awful lot to be happy about.

    I was speaking to a mate a few days ago who's just got back from his 6th Tour of Afghanistan, his mrs is expecting and he's been told he's being turfed out, thanks for 16 years, you've got till august to get your pad squared for handover, see ya!

    Bloody brilliant.

  11. You must have been an utter joy to work with.
