Today i sent one of my guys of the MT to get a vehicle so i could move some stuff to the scrap compound. He had his 1000 filled out and his FMT was in date so i thought 20 mins max he would be back with vehicle. How wrong i was. 5 minuets later he returns, ohh i thought that was quick might be able to get this all sort before lunch and have a easyier afternoon, wrong again! The Master Driver was doing a Pre LSI on the MT department and apparantly, now we have to request any transport in writing with a letter as well as a 1000. I checked the callender, no its not April 1st. I had to confirm this with the details NCO and hear it with my own ears, me "so you want me to write a letter to ask permission to use a vehicle?" Detail NCO "yes it is new policy" me " Has the master driver got 2 pencils up his noes and is he saying wibble alot" Detail NCO "No" me "your ******* kidding arnt you" detail NCO "no thats what you have to do if you want a vehicle" me "So if the Commanding Office wants to deploy his MT Platoon on exercise he will have to write a letter to the MTWO and ask his permission to use his vehicles" detail NCO " Yes, no letter no detail" me "slams phine down" someone in the RLC must know where this written? this can not be true surely we have not become this ****? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
