Every time I go into the NAAFI I get hacked off at the rip off prices. Everything (except booze and perfume) is more expensive than UK prices and more expensive than prices in local shops. Newspapers, magazines and books (a link with home) are at least 50% as much again as UK prices. Booze is tax free here in Cyprus and is cheaper than the UK, but you can actually find the same stuff being sold commercially for the same prices or cheaper locally. In contrast to NAAFI are our international partners military shops. The US PX/BX and commisariats. Of course they are a bigger country and a bigger military, but the Dutch and Norwegian Armies have a far better system than ours. The NAAFI could be a morale and retention factor, instead its just another p@ss off factor.
