Sent to New York for Two Weeks all expenses paid and $25 a day to boot just for standing at an Exhibition in Tunic and Bearskin for a couple of hours..Brilliant
CP exercises at HQ AFSOUTH in Naples back in the eighties. £84 per day LOA - stayed in hotels and with pretty much office hours I spent most nights eating in nice restaurants and getting pi**ed.
Oh yes, meeting up with the RN detachment of Wrens and going out clubbing!
Six weeks in the US, road trip along the 49th parallel and then 4 weeks skiing in Crystal Mountain resort followed by another week drive down the west coast and across the bottom bit.
Saw all the "must see" touristy bits and all for the grand price of £0.
