The boss came in today with a FOE for the year, seems we have a Sqn Ex in July involving a couple of plant teams. The usual groans of 'Exercise' went up amongst the lads until we realised we will, for the first time be taking equipment from our PFI 'Buddies'. The boss has not yet delegated who will reciept the equipment from them, but from todays show of hands there will be alot of volunteers with thier clip boards tabbing one in outside his door come the summer. Those bar stewards done us & the Army proper with thier **** inspections knowing fully well that we would never get half the work completed before the handover. And to think most of them are ex REME who have never probably come across an excavator in thier lives before they joined that firm. Oh well what goes around comes around!
