I've seen this topic before, and i hate to go over old ground. But i'm very worried about the impact PAYD will have on soldiers based in my unit. We have been luckly untill now that we have managed to put PAYD off. That is untill now! PAYD is due to come into effect in November in my Garrison. Having spoken to young soldiers based in other Garrison towns and spoken to my RCWO, i have not yet met anyone who thinks that it provides the kind of quality and portions that are required. I base this not on knocking the NAAFI ( which use to be a great service) but on the experiances by other soldiers who already use PAYD and the expert job that our own chefs carryout, who have been fully receive breifings and Trg on the new system. Service providers such as the NAAFI can never please everyone, but wouldn't it be nice to believe that the NAAFI provide a service not for pure profit but for the benefit of others, only the SALLY BASH now provide a cup of tea a smile, and a warm face at the right time and the right place. Please bring them back to our Garrison towns and not push them to one side. So i return to my question, which i already know the answer to. Can we stop PAYD?
