  10. And hopefully R** C***t doesn't mind the world knowing that he/she works for the MOD.

    Come on, day one week one. Delete the finer detail and send it via PM.
  11. Anally retentive springs to mind. What possible PERSEC implications does this have for the manager of a fibreboard box? Bet AQ or worse are on the case right now.
  12. Anally retentive, maybe so.

    Why not phone them and ask if they mind?. They might be quite happy about it, in which case i stand corrected.

    Edited to add:

    Alternatively why not just change your post and admit that it probably wasn't the best idea to post this persons name, job description and number. Even if it's to save embarrassment when someone googles them in 2 years time to find that their only achievement in life was to manage a fibreboard box.

    Unless YOU ARE the Eman of fibreboard boxes I'm sure that your post will not affect YOUR persec in the slightest.

  14. cheers guys will pass this on to my unit SQMS
  15. Local phone directory lists my name, address and MBE. I didn't ask for the award. Does this compromise my RET(ired)SEC? I receive a number of Army History Society books and reports that list fully Ctte members and other executives.

    What price PERSEC for the retired. I saw mention of a General Wellington the other day.
