I have recently come accross a case in my unit where "extras" are being doled out like benefits to asylum seekers (metaphorically speaking, of course) One soldier received two extras from his staffy, which was promptly doubled, by someone further up the chain (that was not the OC). Also, others of higher standing receiving multiples of 5, and then...well the snowball effect springs to mind. Although I appreciate there is a need to administer disciplinary action, without using the good old 252....isnt this a tad, well, illegal? If I were to issue extras to soldiers, and they took issue with it, would I have opened myself up to a whole world of pain ? There must be some rules regarding this, but I dont particurlarly want to spend my free time leafing through AA1955 or QR's (rather read PAM's myself!) Any pointers from amongst the vast amount of knowledge which is the Royal Corps? I dont want to go to DCM for a Barrackroom Lawyer, who would have simply "fell over" or "walked into a door" a few years ago! (not that I would ever condone such actions, you understand! Although "extras" are great for filling weekend duties rosters!
