Not sure if this has been covered before, but here goes. I am currently on a course at sunny Blandford, and on arrival and to my dismay, I found that the 'shale hockey pitch' (which I was told I had to park on), was still in the aweful state that it was 4 years ago. Apart from the fact that it is a 15 or 20 minute walk from the accomodation, it is full of pot holes, 'shale', and some of the sprogs regularly use it as a rally course. Many people have arrived at their vehicles to find them dented or scratched. I find it insulting that soldiers coming on course here, including upgraders, are forced to use it. Instead of spending money building numerous, useless footpaths around camp, couldn't some be found to re-surface the car park? Try making the officer's or sergeant's mess park up there, and see how much of a stink is kicked up. Is this a meaningless rant, or another case of singlies/juniors coming last?
