NOTW on PAYD
PAYD is shite, always has been, Mainly because we didn't receive what we asked for (to only be billed for the meals we actually ate), and more prominently that the contract was handed to a civilian company full of incompetent moneygrabbing fuckwits.
As to the second part of that article, I strongly suspect there is more that meets the eye. I have taken shit loads of kit above my "official" entitlement to and from various theatres without a problem. This is ether a bollocks whinge picked up by a bollocks newspaper (NOTW), or it is a clueless gobshite whining to the press.
From the NOTW link
".....The lad on his way to Northern Ireland - who doesn't want to be identified - had to call on relatives to bail him out with the cash for his luggage, which included a heavy specialist lead-lined military jacket essential to his safety..........."
Is he a fvcking radiologist?
What, are you telling me you were never issued the new Osprey?
Maybe hes hiding his fags from the badge..who happens to be Superman.
While I agree PAYD is a bag of bollocks, How much is a Mickeys Ds compared to a core menu?
Squaddies have had to pay for their food every since I joined up in 1995 its just I get a choice in the matter now, typical crap from a red-top rag which make the entire army look like a bunch of mongs rather than the young toms who can't look after their finances.
Typical rubbish reporting from that rag. All it serves to do is make soldiers look like whinging tossers who think the world owes them a favour just for wearing a uniform. Whether people like PAYD or not the only time we should get free food is on ops or exercise.
The soldier who wishes to not be named should be so he can be ridiculed for being an oxygen thief.
Separate names with a comma.
