Right you lot, look in, clutch in and pay attention this way - this is NOT about tree-hugging, wearing sandals or knitting your own macrobiotic yoghurt, got me ? So pin back the lugholes and listen without prejudice, as George 'Hampstead Heath' Michael would say: All this 'OGC Buying Solutions' stuff is what we used to call 'Crown Agents' when I was a young goat....and DSA used to be part of the Defence Sales Organisation/DESO till it got hived off to fit with whatever we're calling the Defence Logistics Organisation this week. A few years ago I remember a young crow writing to Soldier mag on this issue and getting the usual " blah,blah di yah " response from Upavon. The irony is , we take youngsters who've been brought up to at least THINK about putting stuff in the bottle bank - and then put them in barracks where nobody appears to give a sh1t....... If anyone's interested I'll supply the hyperlinks at the bottom of the dit. Ends. Hobby horse ridden, bonnet, bees for the keeping of, doffed - Tea and toast await !
