The other day we were having one of those 'It's shit, I'm getting out' chats in the Platoon Office, when somebody piped up with"well, it could be worse". On reflection I was wondering how it could be worse. Here are a few ideas: 1. RAF to run ALL movement across the services (including holiday flights whilst on leave). 2. TCH to have ultimate tactical command of Field Army. 3. Leave to be at irregular times and of irregular duration in order to avoid setting patterns. 4. Units to have Political Officers. Health and Safety, Equal Oppurtunity and Welfare Officers to be made established appointments down to Sub-Unit level. 5. Army pay to be slashed in order to fund new pay rises for senior civil servants - we need to retain the best. Anybody got any others?
