Can someone please shed some light on this:- When training in one's own barracks over a weekend, what provision is there for feeding? We have a kitchen and a couple of very talented chefs, but apparently the system does not allow the funds for them to provide meals. What has to happen is that the individual soldier must buy their own breakfast, lunch and dinner, and claim it back. Each individual soldier must provide a separate receipt, although the receipt may contain more than one meal, provided it can be clearly identified. Unless the soldier buys all his meals before the weekend, which will invariably end up being sandwiches, and there is no provision to store food in fridges; the only other option is to change out of uniform, go out to the local shops and buy a meal, return to barracks, change back, and resume training. What a waste of time. A most helpful alternative offered by our G4 dept is simply to train elsewhere; however, since we have great facilities for certain types of weekend training why should we? That is an even bigger waste of time, fuel and wear and tear on vehicles, not to mention denying that training area from another unit. There must be a solution whereby a soldier can train in in his own barracks and get fed without having to buy his own meals. Any ideas?
