    New scheme announced today.

    Seems to me like a nice idea and worth promoting.

    MDN and Spanish Dave have been doing that for a while now

    Does the Goverment, Tories and the Sun just get everything off here?

    :D Quite probably!
  4. It does seem that way, at least they know a good idea when they see it, imagine if they could actually think these things up themselves, possibly, just possibly they could govern the country and report news honestly.
  5. Whilst I am all in favour of the initiative and applaud the work done by MDN , Spanish Dave and Co, is this the best they could come up with? The fcuking Cairngorms?

    "There you go Timmy, we know that you are upset and that you miss your Daddy, but get your arrse up that soggy hill and have a ball son - don't forget your goretex now! Yes we know social fuckwits get taken to the States to swim with Dolphins etc, but you my son are going to the Cairngorms, you lucky little fucker!"

    There are various schemes for holidays for children in the forces.
    Often Regimental Associations run them.
    Also TRBL & the ABF run schemes with Pontins.
    Plus some regimental Associations have holiday cottages spread about the country.
