As CO he has to be squeaky clean there has to be more to this story that we have not yet heard.

An innocent mistake, bollocks. Everyone knows the rules regarding MT. He'll have been chancing it for a while, mind you everyone has nipped somewhere in an mt car that's not 'an official journey ' before. Bit harsh to get moved on and probably into some dead end post.

Bet there's a few officers with official cars going over the fmt paperwork before the end of the month :lol:

No way an innocent mistake.

Spent three years with a personally allocated MT Car. Absolutely zero personal use allowed and they are all tracked by GPS. CSs combed the paperwork for inaccuracies.

I don't know the guy, and have no bone in the fight, but it smacks to me of he thought he was above the rules. As I've seen many others do....

What's the 'pc brigade' got to do with any of this?

Does seem a bit OTT but I guess Officers are expected to be squeaky clean, perhaps there is more to this that might come out later.

Just imagine if this was the way our MP's were dealt with, didn't we have one voting in parliament recently wearing an electronic tag after being jailed for perverting the court of justice? Hang on, now there's an idea on how to sort out our MP's! :eh:

Seems to depend on the unit, some turn MTs turn a blind eye but others bust people for taking the piss, going shopping in them etc.

It seems he thought it was OK as he paid for the petrol. In my time in the RN it was normal for many senior officers to
misuse staff cars.

NPC well respected in the mob but he royally f**ked up. There's a lot more to this story that the media are not aware of. He would have been better off if he crashed the ship! He would have stood a better chance of getting promoted! :lol:

The cat face I used came from Grumpy Cat. Sadly, Grumpy Cat has died aged 7 years old.

According to the Daily Mail Captain Nick is to command the QE on her return to Pompey, even though he has been publicly humiliated. And again that voyage starts today?

HMS QE's twiter feed has a short video of them filling the dry dock back up with water, but no official leave date/time. https://twitter.com/HMSQNLZ/status/1130767588269670400

Surprised there haven't been any overhead shots of the 2 carriers together to be honest with both of them floating.
