I can not believe this farcical practice is starting up again. As I cycled into camp this morning, in uniform I might add, I exchanged pleasentries with the young R Sigs girl on the gate whilst showing her my ID Card. At this point, she then asked to check the back of the ID Card. Now she has obviously been told to do this, but really what is the fecking point. I am assuming it is to check for forged ID cards. If I was going to forge an ID Card, surely I am going to do the back of it as well as the front Can anyone educate me as to why this pointless exercise is practiced? I remember there was a spate of it in the early 90's with rumours the RMP were going around with tigerwatch stickers on the back of their cards to catch out the poor feckers on the gate.
