Evening gents/ladies, I'm after a bit of advice. Right I've been out of RMP 17 years in a couple of weeks so this is why i'm asking. In my day we didn't wear stab vests on patrol and handcuffs and truncheons were kept in a locked cupboard in the station. Do modern day NCO's carry batons and cuffs in the uk? I know they wear stabbies as I've seen photo's. Another question, when a squaddie gets nicked, do they get cuffed before being transported back to their guardroom? The reason i'm asking, a person on another forum has been brought to my attention by other members of the forum. This guy claims to be RMP serving in a joint police unit in Cyprus, yet his IP address shows he's in the uk. His posts don't ring right, he's claiming all kinds of things and making comments about things he's not qualified to. If you fine people can help me out, I'll do my best to try and out him and if he does turn out to be a walt, I'll slip the dogs of arrse onto him, or at least wait till sluggy gets back from penguin worrying!
