Did anyone catch the piece this moning on Radio 4 regarding the amount of lost kit in the logistic system..? BBC - BBC Radio 4 Programmes - The Report, The MOD's Missing Kit It was going over the report by the NAO etc regarding the amount of kit lost by the MoD over recent years, and the huge wastages involved in the logistic chain as a result of lack of control and oversight.. I think some of the accusations are wrong: 1. I don't see a compelling reason for combining Sea, Air and Land logistic systems. They operate in fundamentally different ways and need solutions that meet their mode of operation. Should however the RAF, Navy, Infantry, Engineers, Gunners and "speshuls" have their own private supply systems is a good point! 2. I don't believe that any weapons have fallen into the wrong hands, however this is not to say that we know where all the "sensitive" hi tech stuff may be.. Some of the other accusations are however "bang on". The "Logistics is not sexy" bit. This is the root cause of the problem IMHO..
