Whilst new to this site, i have got some good info and some amusing stories from the site. Cheers all(at least when i'm bored at work i can log on at HM expense) Just recently one of my lads (complete cretin) was jailed by the system for going AWOL twice and stealing a credit card off his mate and using it numerous times. Now this was last year, since he was released from MCTC (on remand there after going AWOl), he disappeared at least 8 times, then turned up when he wanted paying (cash paid soldier), the system paid him as he turned up with sick chits, and they were binding that he was sick!!. After being paid he would jump the back fence and go home again(sick with a bad back, my ARSE replied Jim Royle!!) Yes we applied for the Judge Advocate to put him back in remand, but he said NO!! Then when he went AWOL again, the judge had the audacity to blame, NO wait not the unit, but Me. Cheers your honour. Is the system failing out there or is this a one off, as at the moment the lads from the Tp are proper pi**ed off with the whole episode. Not one to moan but please.
