Looks like a case of running to mum when things get tough. God help him ! Some people are not happy if they have got nothing to moan about. I am in touch with serving men all the time and they tell me they are better equipped than ever and certainly better than we were. Equipment is changing and improving all the time of course. That's the way of progress. The lads of WW2 would have given their eye teeth for the equipment servicemen are issued with these days.
