Considering we've been fighting wars on two fronts throughout that period I dont think that's too bad. In any case I'm sure that very few weapons have actually been lost or stolen. Most of those listed above can most likely be put down to accounting errors.

Phew, I thought they'd go back further in their investigation. Does this mean we're in the clear now for burying a certain cnut of a C/Sgts SMG at the end of one particular exercise back in the 80's? :twisted:

Remind me, just when did weaponry become the plural of weapon?
The Oxford Pocket Dictionary of Current English | Date: 2009

weap·on·ry / ˈwepənrē/ • n. [treated as sing. or pl.]

weapons regarded collectively.

OH dear no wonder he's passed over!!

Why the fcuk is this in the gash barge? It's more relevant than a lot of the shite posted. Is it because the boys club didn't find it?
Dont forget the boys club were using the long-bow in "their day" Monty!!!
