Now I as an Infantry soldier was always taught that maintanence and cleaning of your weapon was a personal responsability (My weapon, my kit, myself), so why therefore is it that we have once again reached that time of year when the CO does his inspection and all the company weapons get dragged out of the armoury and cleaned. Granted they should be clean anyway (I know my blokes are as I inspect them) so it shouldn't take too long. I have several points however: 1. I cannot believe for a second that the CO will inspect any weapons, surely it's just a peek in the armoury/paperwork and nothing more. 2. If it is a personal responsability to insure your weapon is clean, then why do my blokes and I have to drag them out and inspect/clean them, surely any gopping weapon owners should be charged/AGAI'd 3. Funny that the officers have scheduled a meeting on said training night, it seems we will be asked to do jobs which our officers wouldn't do themselves.
