    Couldn't find a thread on this* so here y'go, for those who may not have seen :

    Stolen military hardware being sold-off on eBay - Crime - UK - The Independent

    .




    * apart from this one of course...d'oh! http://www.arrse.co.uk/military-clothing-boots/174067-monkeys-e-bay.html
     
  2. Erm, an X Box 360? What's the MoD doing with one of them which is so vital to the nations security?

    Just a thought.

  4. Just possibly it was purchased with welfare funds for soldiers deploying to operational theatres. Nation's security? No, probably not. Important to morale? Definitely.

    you're a Man City supporter you say ? Just a thought....nuff said really....
     
  6. Go on any pussers war canoe and in the mess decks you'll find xbox 360's or nintendo wii's
     
  7. I don't think that Bdr 'Fingers' McCafferty or LCpl 'Pockets' Pollard will be sweating much though...

    Military police


    PS. If anybody's looking for a reasonably priced X Box...you know the drills.

    PPS. And before any of the Monkey's have a pop...don't shoot the messenger. It's not his fault that your investigations 'lack rigour'.
     
  8. I'm going to sell a tin of SAS paint, Boathouse, for the use of,

    Highest bidder will find out what colour it is when they open it.[taps side of nose]

  9. Budget cuts. it's how initial flying training is conducted now.
     
  10. That link is totally inaccurate and should not be used when referring to military police crime clear up figures. It clearly states that RMP clear up rates are 'no better than that of Inspector Clouseau'. I have seen every single Pink Panther film and I think you will find that Inspector Clouseau always gets his man - therefore surely his clear up rate is 100%. The clear up rate of the RMP however..............................................
     
  11. I think it's pretty well established the RMP couldn't solve a dot to dot drawing of a straight line.

    Bugger! Will I get away with listing my sugar bag shorts, issue Spitfires and scratchy green long johns? I've been waiting for decades for the trail to go cold.

    Won't be selling my puttees, though. Oh no, sirree.

    As an aside, I saw some military gear on ebay about 5 years ago. The chap had taken photographs of the stuff in his back garden, which was quite clearly a quarter, at Yeovilton. A bit of Google Earthing later I was taking a peek in his back yard.

    (And, no, I didn't.)
     
  14. We're waiting.
     
  15. That's total uncalled for.
