Re: FOFAD

I seem to remember reading that most of our tank spares went up in that. But, ah well fuck it, the Cold War's nearly over was the MoD attitude to replacing them. Budgets and all that. Which was all fine and dandy, as it didn't all kick off in Germany - but not so great when Iraq invaded Kuwait. So we sent across two armoured brigades, and then left another couple sitting in Germany with no engines - as they'd all had to be nicked and sent across as spares.
