Claim will damage soldiers

Sir -- Our brave soldiers are now looking for extra payments for helping out during last year's flooding and presumably this year's snow and freeze up. Surely they should be delighted to have a real job, even if is only for a couple of weeks every year.

Personally I find their claim outrageous and offensive, and will do nothing but damage the reputation of our army. God help us, if we are ever invaded. PDFORRA would be looking for a huge "decency payment". Please drop this stupid claim, and save our soldiers from widespread derision.
