Civilians Working For The Army..Bad Idea/Good Idea?

#1
Ok,over the years, the MOD has given alot of jobs to civilians within the army, such as chefs (more so at training barracks), storeman, logisticians, security guards, who stag on front gates..( talking before the into of Mod Gurad service).

But is this a good idea, or is it necessary because of the ever shrinking army and its trades? If you think about it from a money saving point of view, contractors save the army..(Government ) money..ie the army arnt paying the contractors,hence no army pension, healthcare, benefits etc etc.

Is this a good idea though, as the army can do all these trades themselves, or is it a sign of the times, where gradually soldiers jobs are going to be limited and trades will reduce / or even become non-existant.

I quite enjoy picking up the crisp packets and fag ends around the garrison, keeps me off the dole and saves the blokes doing area cleaning.
