One of the very definite feelings coming out of the HAS thread has been 'Thou shalt not steal'. However, I feel that this has to be defined in order that it can be understood properly. Nicking your mates (includes whole Bn/Regt/Sqn etc) wallet, laptop, personal kit etc, etc is a total no--no. But when it comes to an inspection, 'Complete to CES' in the garages (going back a few years here) then anything no guarded was fair game. If you did not set your vehicle crew to guard the kit then hell mend you - and we ALL did it. FFS there was no way you could make CQMS/SQMS without the ability to 'acquire' kit at the correct time. So my point is theft of personal kit not good, remainder is known as foraging!
