If the weekend is that important to your lads then tell them to put leave passes in, it doesn't come off there leave card and it would better guard against a friday afternoon dicking. If the guys were working late all week a blind man could have seen weekend work incoming.

What you need to explain is whether this is a regular occurrence, or a one-off dicking.
If this is happening regularly to your lads then something is wrong. Whether it is bad management, bad planning, or simply overstretch and undermanning, if this is happening regularly then something is wrong and something should be done about it. Looking at DINS and getting "figures and guidelines" isn't going to help; you make out you're in the Sgts Mess, surely there is someone you can have a word with and try and get something sorted? Constantly screwing the lads to the floor will only exacerbate the issue; they'll sign off and there will still be the same amount of graft for even less people.
If it's an infrequent case then you should Man The Fcuk Up, stop whining and take the hit.
