Thanks for that information, CC; I hadn't heard or seen anything. No doubt it will be buried on some website somewhere! How would we have won WW1 & 2 with "pull" technology? Would Monty's famous Order of the Day still be resting unread upon some website?
Just paid £205 for my car tax - which is a considerable increase on last year, IIRC. So it is nice of the Ministry to drop the allowance by ~5% when the cost of motoring is still increasing, and just as I move to a job where I will be covering lots of miles! Looks like the hire car budget will get a bashing!
Only a civvie now but.....we have been told recently that we are no longer allowed to use civvie cars to travel to temp detatched duty stations to work at PTR (0.25p per mile) so an ASM on £112.00 per day drives the main line civvies as duty driver. As Litotes quoted "website etc," cannot find any change to the Travel Manual but doubtless retrospective action is in progress. While I agree that if there are sufficient White Fleet vehicles available to carry out the task they should be used, perhaps a little prep and plan could have been employed proior to the announcement. Doh!
You can take the man out of the Corps but you cannot take the Corps out of the man....no matter what the price!!
