    A long piece worth reading.
     
  2. some blatant nonn facts in there though warriors without air con ...can be fitted ...80p pay rise full screw to stripey hmm no 3%min pay rise so even if was on £50 a day (just for example would be on more) that would be £1.50 a day grrrrrrrrr hate it when facts are not right whichever way it makes it apear to 1 UK CIV DIV

    BUT at least highlighting shortage of support for our ops
     
  3. Sometimes I pray that they would down tools and refuse to fight until they are provided with the support they deserve. Unfortunately (or fortunately for this vile cunt of a government), our comrades are far too proud and professional to do so.
     
  4. In certain circles the greatest concern is at having to cancel the Duke of Gloucester visit.

    These things matter more to some than, say, small matters like ammo shortages, lack of air support/transport and few ground vehicles. After all, we can borrow stuff from the Estonians so that is OK then

    You could not make it up.
     
  5. Again this is nothing new....just history repeating itself......I can remember landover engines in short supply in Borneo,Aden and clothing shortages during the Falklands War.......
