Open to all who can answer: Two questions bugging me all week 1. What happened to all the Sgts Mess Silver and also unit silver sent back to the MOD over the years when messes were shut, disbanded etc, someone told me once its not broken down or even sold which implies, its sat in a storeroom somewhere gathering dust. I know a lot of it went to newly formed units but a vast number was just backloaded. Is it all sat in one of the major depots someplace doing nothing? Anyone know how it can be tracked down? or, anybody seen it? 2. I paid into a Soldiers Widows Fund for 20 odd years, never thought about it, even paid my ones days pay thingy but every pay slip, there it was ...SWF Â£xxx So..question 2 is..what happened to that cash from zillions of squaddies, how much are we talking about over 20 years or so..and why didnt I get a rebate/refund when I left? We could be talking about millions of (taxed) cash sent back to the MOD to do what exactly? So pay experts out there..over to you.... Pay and paybook isnt correct at this stage sir'
