Don't blame the RAF for the navy problems - nowt to do with them.
I beg to differ and blaming the MOD is naive. However, I'm still covered by SC and OSA, so wrong place, wrong time.

Just one last word - we quoted the navy £125,000 to fit one of our systems along side but instead they opted to get the job done by the shipyard for £2 million - why - because they could not move money between different budgets - just how stupid is that.

That's the governments financial regulations for you - absolutely nothing to do with specific services (although the Levene defence reform review of 2011 did recommend that service chiefs were empowered with more freedom of financial control to try and prevent that kind of wastage)

Ok one final word from me. Falklands stationary budget £90000 run by 5 people Sgt and below as there only job, an carriers stationary budget £150000 run by one able rate as one of his many jobs. just one of the many example of raf job creation.

Falklands Noggin

Post by upstart8s » Sun Feb 10, 2019 7:26 am

I've just come across this in an idle moment. I have several points arising:
Is it reasonable to assume that some of our members have Forces experience?
Is the Noggin still live?
Should this be in the "jokes" section?
and finally
Can anyone enable the image of the penguin to appear on my screen please?
( have read recent posts about non-images. I am using Win Vista and often don't get the images posted on the forum)

Hi Stu

I was joking, I was sent to the Falklands a few years ago for 10 days to do a job.

There is a few current and ex military on here, even some RAF which is the military lite :wink:

Yes Jim, I have tried that on both Vista and now on Win 10. The image did show up for a split second but then disappeared. No further comment from you on the thread?

Steve, I was too late for national service but given a choice I would have been one of those 'Boys in Blue'

Keep entertaining us please,
Stu
