    ARRSE has a very different take on this, suggesting that its not quite what it seems...
  2. This begs the wider question of Military Display Teams being 'hired out'; such as the Red Arrows, Parachutists, Dog handlers, Motor Cyclists, etc.

    I'll bet even money that some (new?:roll:) Civil Serpent Dept. is probably trawling through commitments, invoices and payment schemes as we speak - to see what else the impecunious MOD can claw unto their coffers.

    Is it ever any other way on ARRSE ? :)

    Or, on the other hand, where the band is compelled to undertake an 'extra' duty, they could negotiate a negligible fee as they won't see any of it. Mind you, the MoD will probably take over the contracts and we all know how good MoD are with contracts :)
  4. Back to 'cash in hand', then?

    Rumrat will know - Being our resident expert in the black economy, 'specially steel bands.
