I am a wee bit concerned to be honest. Yesterday I spent nearly £20 sending red cross parcels over to my beloved. Simple things were in there, morale boosters eg: paintings by the kids and suchlike; food more food and baby wipes. (he is is a hot sandy place) Is it right that we should be charged so much money for sending food (mainly) to men (who by all accounts are in pretty rough conditions) and family stuff (as there are still no phones working so far in this deployment so they can call home)? My point is even more wound up when you take in to consideration that Brtish troops don't even get the same financial rewards as our counter parts do for deployments/operations etc, deifinitely not the same equipment and second rate conditions, then they have to pay through the arse for postage to get the wee morale boosts that they really look forward to to them ??? Come on, even after the small discount we do get the charges are still excessive! Surely we should be making it easier for them to stay positive out there? How do privates etc manage on their wages? Think back guys, remember how pleased you all were to get your parcels?
