The services are throwing money hand over fist to youngsters to get them in the door and us old timers are left to rot, knowing that we dont have that much left to give? I for one would not have minded 50p coming from my wages every month to go into a central pot for a fixed sum to be presented to those passing 22 years. Secondly, up in Faslane we have a periodical leavers dinner, where we dine out the guys going outside reguardless of time done. Does anywhere else do this?
