MOD 90

#1
Any idea why some Rgt's are asking for the MOD 90's to be handed back in ? . Do they think that the troops are still children ? or do they just want the troops to stop getting discounts at Burger King ect.
 
#2
Is it their way of checking that the individual is still in possession of their MOD90?

I know that at Sqn level MOD90 "should" be checked regularly on Muster parades, but do the RHQs believe that this takes place?

Edited to add extra para

Permanet thing or is it just for a doc's check :?
Perm, on W/ends they are supposed to be signed out then back in again at the end of the W/end. Problem being if there is no one to sign them out and the troops need to get scoff at the local Mil Est mess they are stuffed.

Some go on exercise or courses with other units often enough to make going via one's TAC (and hoping there is someone there to sign it out to you) rather a pain. And if that's not possible for any reason? Good luck getting past the gate where ever you're going.

Not to mention if you are part of a specialist unit.

If you were going on a course you might have to do a 200 mile round trip to get your id first!

I reackon that some Tourist attractions over here should do a similar thing . If the yanks can do it for us why cant the theme parks here do it .
Unless you belong to a certain Signal Regt.

Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! :lol:

Your not wrong though :wink:

I've always thought this country needs to support it's troops more....

Try walking into a pub in uniform (I know it's not allowed!), and getting someone to buy you a beer!

Nearest I got to that was a young chav threw half a can of shandy bass at me whislt I was doing the recruiting thing!!!!!

At least youve got a MOD 90, ive been in for 2 years and still waiting for one!
The point is i expect that someone in your Regt will always have one handy so it is not a problem or even a chit in luei . What i find unacceptible is the fact that someone in a Regt thinks that everyone in it is a child. The way i look at it is , If you sign out a MOD 90 and lose it then it is your problem you pay the consequences .
As pointed out earlier you have to sign out and look after a rifle for F*ks sake...
