I've just been told that because the regulars can't keep track of their kit they have 'lost' 20% of their Bowman kit. And because they have no money it has been decided that the army is going to make up for losing it by replacing it with all the Bowman radios issued to the TA. The TA is going to stop being Bowmanised. In my squadron this means we have just completely wasted 2 years getting Bowmanised and that there is NO POINT to turning up because with no radios we cant do anything. Does anyone know anything about this ? Is it true or just a nasty rumour ?
