The trouble with CAAs

So its a country wide thing..... Most are ok chaps, but work, its like asking them to cut off their right hand. All are ex soldiers, on a fairly good pension, and a relatively average wage, with another pension on it way. In fairness we had one that worked night and day for the Cadets, this was noticed in the higher echelons, and they moved him to an HQ job. Unfortunately, nothings going to change them.
Bad luck, we have a good one at the moment, puts his self out to try and help if you need any thing quick. He also helps out on weekends if required.
I don`t know if there are any differences between CCF and ACF`s role for there CAA`s, but our guy delivers uniforms to the units and collects returns, and also delivers the mountain of mail from HQ. And occasionally raids my the Naafi.
SSI you need some more people to help you out, I have two Sgts with me who teach whilst I ride my desk, though I do admin one night a week usually the Thursday, Tuesday teaching the little darlings. Uniform requests and return uniforms are submitted on the 2nd to last Thursday of the month to be sent with monthly returns. Course`s are easy in ACF bids go to Company HQ and they do the rest.
Easy now Country_Bumpkin, you know my views on that one , Ha, Ha, SSI i understand why I have it easier I parade on average 20 cadets thats all not the vast legion you have. we have UIN but I am not often given access to it as I would be indenting for everything, last indent was collar dogs for my SD, though I did have permission.
I p***ed myself recently - my issue pair of boots started falling apart so i went to my CAA for exchange, who said - you're joking, you can't exchange them, you've only had them 3 years, the army expect them to last for at least 8 years, and won't replace them with in that time.

What a joke!
We're quite lucky, our CAA is spot on
Clanker, look on the ACF location statement (there is a Word version somewhere online, google will do the trick) and you'll find your County's UIN. Indent until your heart is content.
our one is ok.

Sorted out all we needed to conduct a range weekend. Rifles check, ammo check, cleaning kits check, slings check. Anything missing?

Well not so thought someone who brought all the kit along after picking it up from HQ.

Found out what was missing the next day on the range.

But apart from that she is ok and very helpful with bits and bobs.
