    Portakabins

    These lads attending College in Dublin

    were based in the Curragh and Gton

    they cribbed that it was to far away-

    so the only other thing was Portakabins that are linked to the Mess

    anyone in CBB will see that they are in good order

    in fact I bet that there are some lads living in worse accomodation
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    from talking to a colleague that resides in them, he told me that the hot water and heating system is very unreliable and breaks down every 2-3 days so BFW have to be called to sort it which is a pain in the backside. wouldn't fancy that!!

      Its still better than the "temporary" accomodation in Kilworth.


      Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

            The portakabins are better then some of the rooms enlisted soldiers have in the barracks including yours truly.

                  That will be torn down shortly as they have allready started building the new concrete billets.
                  "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

                      An equally shocking headline, "Army Privates living in blockwork box".

                          My point is they're only temporary accomodation and they're better then the fixed accomodation the Pte's have.

                          Therefore I don't know why they're complaining.

                            Tell them to go and pay rent in Rathmines! Externally, at least, they look fine. Although I'm glad they have been moved of the back square.
