I wonder if this operation will be able to continue after MoD Police is drastically reduced in size to save costs? Can't see local police being able to cope with the extra workload in addition to providing security to MoD bases!

What about the kit, they don't take off you when you leave the forces, even when you try and hand it in?
I've got loads of kit in my attic, thousands of pounds worth which the Army did not want back and that I have no use for, some of the kit I have purchased myself, Mess Dress and Warrant Officers bits and pieces, however there is still a fair bit of kit sat there doing nothing and my missus wants me to sell it on e-bay, not a chance now . . .

Rob, if you genuinely dont want any of the kit you have stored, why not take it to your local Army Cadet Force Detachment, as a registered charity, the ACF is self supporting for kit, and any extra from any legitimate source is always more than welcome, also it might give you a new hobby if you like what you see and fancy being back ingreens again, just a thought.

not a lot of people seem to understand that kit issued by the govt remains Govt property. The amount of MTP on ebay within a few months of it's issue was a surprise - and reported to MDP. Why Rob's kit wasn't accepted back is an Army issue (sorry).
