Just come back from a course in Arborfield. Had the displeasure of staying in the Mess Annex!! I shared a room with 3 others, just as i did in 1988 as an AT but this time it was 20 years more dilapidated and i had to pay for the privilage!!! someone somewhere is taking the pee!! Is this how the home of the REME treats its SNCOs. Mind u there were no ranks above sgt in the Annex even though the Mess was supposed to have been full and higher ranks were arriving for other courses aft. We all pay the SAME bills!!!
