Mmmmmmmmmmmmm????????????????????? There is much to say on this topic! At the moment it would seem they're going to 'hell in a hand basket'!! The next few years will confirm or deny this. Personally I hope it's just a vicious rumour, but the way things have gone recently I don't think this is the case!! :cry:

What's all this about? Please do elucidate... I am all agog, after all, we don't hear much grumbling from the Padres normally. Can it be that the army's morale deficit has affected them too? Has the evil one in the treasury taken all their money away as well as everyone else's?

I blame Aunty Stella, he's Pope Approved..... and the Holy Arrse thread :wink:
Aunty Stella? Pope Approved? Who or what are you talking about? Are these well known phrases in the RAChD, because they sure weren't covered at JDSC!

Mister Purple Flash, if you dont know who Aunty Stella is, far be it from me to tell you about His Sexiness :roll:
I take it the the redoubtable Aunty Stella is the nickname of a Padre? Or am I as hopelessly lost as an officer with a compass?

:cry: Morale is certainly low, ambition is rife in certain quarters, pastoral care of chaplains is at a low ebb. What the chaplains need, is not in the power of the Treasury to give.

That makes me sad - our Padre in Iraq was top bloke and kept everyone happy. Even when he was sad. He worked his arrse off to make sure everyone was ok and even now we are back, he is still working hard. That makes me sad.

had a chat with a padre friend of mine, looking weary (or is that bleary?) and muttering something about having to work over Easter. According to him, things are not too good in God land. Seems that a half dozen or so of them have had enough and are transferring to the Navy en masse...

You're quite right: it's no rumour. I know one who got his papers through the other day, sad to leave his friends, but can't wait to go.
