Look after it.I'm still paying for the mahoosive Technics stereo I stupidly bought on Tour in Northern Ireland, which I paid for using my shiny NAAFI credit card, in 1991.
I found a very good repair shop in Nottingham when I was working there recently. Sorted out my 30+ years old Technics amplifier at a very reasonable price. Not so many places left that have the skills and knowledge to do this these days. A very knowledgeable and decent guy to deal with. His workshop is like taking a step back in time.Look after it.
Technics are superbly made; the day I was told my separates were beyond repair, it got a bit dusty….
I fondly remember the pies. The finest concoction of grease, gristle and gravy that low paid pond life could buy. A welcome top-up to the barely edible stuff in the mess and beer absorbent.
Kinloss bomb dump '61, horizontal sleet. Up hoves green NAAFI van, hurrah tea n wads. Rear hatch opens cheery Scottish lady shouts, "sorry lads I've no tea and only one cake left"
WRVS was making a fair few quid in Tidworth with all the building going on MOD even did a full upgrade of their facilities and guess what the place was handed over to WRVS hope told MOD on the Monday that they were pulling out despite them telling MOD that they would continue with the one pound a year lease. Same thing in Bulford.
True that. Still liked coffee made with hot milk at Lisburn when we was soaking wet.
Professignal providers like Sodexo etc.? Equally crâppy, and also infested with retired VSOs. Be careful what you wish for.Blimey, there are more Officer appointments than I thought!
I must be turning into some sort of socialist as I'm disgusted that so many serving or RO are required to make sure Tommy Atkins gets his NAAFI growler.

How much do we taxpayers spunk on this bollocks when we could be tendering contracts to people who do it for a living instead of providing retirement jollies for the entitled classes?
At least you can finish a contract.Professignal providers like Sodexo etc.? Equally crâppy, and also infested with retired VSOs. Be careful what you wish for.
