    Hmm interesting!

    Slight Thread drift but along the same lines ... when the Septics pulled out of Vietnam they left a lot of surplus equipment including a lot of empty heavy wooden Bomb Crates (actually made of decent wood). Vietnamese have taken the wood and turned them into furniture(tables, welsh dressers etc) predominatly for the European market. "Er Indoors" decided she liked this Welsh Dresser in a local "craft" store and bought it ... stencilled on the back is a US Army logo. Just hope the b*ggers don't tip up and want their wood back!

    In short Stirls,

    'twas your slop chip for all those portable Permanent/Valuable items in your section which you mustered on arriving and signed for as sighted and all AOK. eg Greenies Avometers.

    Any PLR items missing at a subsequent muster/hand over to your relief could be rather expensive for the PLR Acct. Holder. (unless the Jack Dusty was partial to Bubbly & DFs, wink-wink.)

    WAH Shield down & Logging Orf for now.

    Read somewhere its to do with the Treasury, if they leave it there it gets written off, if its brought home/used by MOD it will come out of their budget. A waste but thats how the treasury seems to work, rather let foreigners have it as "Aid" than write it off and let MOD use it.
