Theft from MOD

#2
Sorry, buts thats what the MOD gets when it down sizes its security force.

At my place due to the MOD's re-categorisation of sites, patrolling no longer exists, dog sections have been closed. The Unions told them what the knock on effect would be and it looks like it has now come to light.

Save a penny, lose a pound!!! Good ole MOD.

Tumble dryers...I have heard of people sneaking pens and paper clips out but that is summat else entirely!
You don't know the half of it. Contractors had a industrial cement mixer nicked. A 20 foot privately owned launch was removed via a back gate. What has been reported is what the MoD has owned up to losing - bet the real figure is way higher.

You would have to search every vehicle leaving a MOD site to totally eradicate theft. The priority is stopping bad things being brought in not bad people taking someone else's possessions out!

Jeez that is crazy! My parents have always worked on an MOD base and never brought anything back from work except illnesses they have caught. Yeah you are right monitoring would be impossible, eurgh why people think they have a right to things really gets my goat.

Diving helmets were on that list, no wonder Froggers and Spid are coining it in, CD's always have more "alternative" sources of income than a 3 badge jack dusty :)

I remember in barracks, some chap came in through the gate in a white van saying he had come to repair the TV in the PO's Mess, he loaded the telly into his van and drove out never to be seen again, you have to admire the brass neck of it.

Night vision goggles eh? Blackrat, as our resident "Buffalo Bill", have you anything to say on this?
Yes. Yes i do.

It was nothing to do with me. I have some PNVG's that were issued to me. I've never used them to spy on, or stalk women. Ever. They're just too bulky.

I admit, however, to stealing a shed load of carrots from the cookhouse.

A laptop is going missing from the Ministry of Defence every five days, ....:grin:
I ''ve got a pussers laptop. They go missing out of frustration when they get launched out of a hotel room. you would be so disappointed if you nicked one to find the most out of date slow processing piece of shit ever
