A bloke with us who was most eager to meet his German Girl friend over the weekend offered me 1000DM to do his guard for him, that was around £330 back then!

There are many crazy examples of wild finance costings in H.M Forces, and it is true that the manufactures of such items make a killing.

I suppose that the old argument that "it goes back into the British economy" could be some acceptable justification for this financing madness.

As a matter of interest, Sweden, (a neutral country) made huge financial profit during WW2 supplying kit for the Nazi war machine !
