"Royal Navy captain of HMS Queen Elizabeth quits after being stripped of command"
A shame to lose someone with such experience over such an incident....
Technically he committed fraud and theft.
All official trips have to be logged on a vehicle utilisation record sheet.
He was stealing fuel and driving without insurance (MoD insurance is a blanket policy for all vehicles not individual ones and only for officially authorised trips).
If you check a MoD registration on something like the motor insurance database you won't get any results.
If I draw a vehicle to attend meetings or courses I have to use the most direct & economical route and can't drive the vehicle other than to / from the authorised destination except in an emergency or for other pre-authorised reasons.
All vehicles are on a tracker system so unauthorised usage is easy to spot.
True it's a sad occurrence but he should have known better and was expected to hold himself to a higher standard befitting a senior officer.
