As an RAF loggie working on a few projects with RLC guys (and RN), I sometimes get very frustrated by the archaic procedures used by the Army. It baffles me that some of the obvious things are allowed to perpetuate and drag down your business. My particular point (there is one) is wanting to ask whether you think it would be good to put RLC further forward and take on the Supply role of the QM? I'm not suggesting do away with the QM, but put professional suppliers up there to take on the Stores/Supply role. IMHO, the biggest hurdle to proper and slick logistical support is the last link - the untrained amateur if you will. We don't have old aircraft engineers placing demands at the Squadron - we have Suppliers there to give the best service to the customer. The new stuff happening in the Supply Chain (MJDI, MMiT, VITAL) will free up bodies further back - so why not grip the initiative and make the RLC the true end-to-end it should be?
