Why? Did any of the Service Chiefs have a look at this monstrosity before idly nodding it through? It is dreadful. Black & white FFS, and completely lacking in style. And, what is more, and this is why I largely posed question 2, why has the Navy lost it's bit of rope from the 'Fouled Anchor', the symbol of the Admiralty since the 1700s? Next question: in these days of frugality, when for instance one needs One Star approval to go anywhere in an MT vehicle, how much did this pointless exercise cost? Consider: Costs to pay some knobber to scratch around with his pencil and dream it up? Costs of implementation? Waste of existing 'branded' kit as it gets thrown away as 'out of date'. How long will it be before the next clever little thruster in the 'Good Ideas/Emperor's New Clothes' department comes up with another cunning wheeze and changes it again? It's not as if it hasn't changed fairly recently as it is. Is it designed to save money on ink? Are things really that bad? A drop in the ocean compared with the colossal wate of money caused by the recent Railway fiasco. Finally, haven't our glorious leaders got better things to be worrying about?
