As an ex squaddy living in Das Vaterland,i need now and again(10 years),a new passport.Imagine my horror as i enquired via internet about a renewal. My passport will cost 170 Euros,that's about 130 quid!!Why?? I have as a British civilian , no id card anymore and so must pay this exorbitant price, i am disgusted!! As a comparison my last passport 10years ago costed about 70 marks(35 euros).Please spare any stupid remarks such as move back to GB etc,i have served my time too!! I just think this is gravely wrong ,and i can do nothing about it, or (shudder) i must become a boxhead!!
