Wasn't sure where to post this, and apologies if this has carried elsewhere. My mate just informed me that a local radio station (Wave 105 Southampton) was carrying a story regarding troops not being fed in theatre(s). Relatives had phoned to comment after sending food parcels to their kids, not luxury items but basic foodstuffs. I didn't hear the story myself, so I phoned the station to ask about it. Believe it or not, even though I'm a horrible selfish civvy these days, I'm still passionate (read pi$$ed off) about the treatment and conditions of serving soldiers (don't even start me on care for ex-soldiers). They confirmed that they had received these claims from parents recounting tales of woe from various young Toms requesting food to be sent. This inturn was a thread carried from Radio 5 live, again parents of serving soldiers were commenting on similar claims from their kids in theatre. In the Radio 5 instance some Staff Officer went on and rubbished the statements. Given what I am being told by my mates who are still in, I would be unsurprised if these claims were not only true, but the mere tip of the iceberg. Anybody got any dits on this?
