If only our own forces could be bothered to make a difference to our country. Moons ago they did, now they do sweet FA whenever we have bad weather.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Some countries just seem to get on with it.
Here a problem is something the government mulls over, thinks about, and re-thinks.
Usually with little end result.

years ago it was legal for them to do so, now it isn't
as a member of HMAF it  was illegal to do something that a civilian could be contract to do, so whilst many are fully qualified (with all the civil certs) to do things they are prohibited from doing so, this restriction was put in place when crown immunity was withdrawn back in mid 90's
hence the reason why unless the emergency support of the civil powers act request has been signed by a member of the civil powers HMAF wont "help" with anything if they care about not going to prison!
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

In winter fit snow tyres and have tyre chains available, it makes an enormous difference.

A few years ago
I saw a little Suzuki 4X4 tow a full size tractor unit & 50ft trailer unit up a 1 in 4 slope, without issues in the snow
