    Default Got Told Off

    Last night while in one of our military establishment's, I entered a "secure" area, got told off on the way back out.

    Your not allowed down there...

    Oh, I didn't see anyone on the gate so I assumed it wasn't a problem

    Yeah the phone rang and I was on it at the time....

    Oh right, sorry mate

    The thing that gets me is he was on his own and the gates were wide open, it seems stupid that he was solo guarding a billion quid's worth of hardware and had left the gates open, ok it was an internal guard not an entrance guard but that's not the point, several times before I've e.mailed HMG to highlight failing's, but do they answer or seem to do anything? NO! too busy fiddling to be interested, add the fact that it wasn't our billion pounds that was being secured, it makes it really poor as the nation in question is a very good friend.

    I've tried to not give too many details here, but if admin feel it's a hot spud, delete it.

    So true, they are all jobs worths mate, I know a few of my lads that actually got onto "some" bases with a blockbuster video card! The standard of security is pitiful and they jus don't care!

    Best/worse one I ever saw was 10p off Superking Lights voucher, others they used to use were bank cards, it's not so bad these days cos the lads know the state of things, but back in the old days it used to be a competition to see who could outfox the gate staff with the most stupid thing.

    I know exactly where you're talking about Ian..I think!

    I often spend 2 hours at the main gate with the right docs and unable to get in cause of red tape!

    My experience of MGS is old men who are not capable of being in a position of security as they are too frail and TBH don't give flying **** about it. They see it as stand by the gate and watch some cars although some guys really do their job well, so well that I avoid them when going into camp because I know he'll check all my details, which is good, but not from a squaddy point of view, we just complain about anything.

    He actually did look like he gave a toss, and also the type to give chase as well, I'm not so much having a punt at the guard, but like all of this sort of thing it's under man'd because of cost's etc.

    Totally agree, I know at a lot of camps the old MGS is being scrapped and it's just manned by military personnel all in the name of money.
