Just to show you that adminwise nothing ever changes. I'm reading a book 'Britain's Forgotten Wars', in the intro there is story recounted that will warm the cockles of the hearts of every bean counter and storeman. Whilst stationed in the West Indies in the mid 19th century a certain regiment suffered an epidemic of cholera. One young sufferer was pronounced as about to die by the poultice wallopers so he was measured up fro a coffin. The coffin was procured but he 'failed to die'. The question then was who was going to pay for the coffin? Our hero refused to sign his account with this charge against him on the not unreasonable grounds that he had not ordered the coffin, and he certainly did not want it. Eventually a compromise was reached and he did pay for the coffin, had it fitted with shelves and used it in his barracks as extra storage space.
