I got an email this morning, one of those "pass it on" type emails. Having scrolled down to the bottom, there were some romantic pictures of soldiers and this.
I always delete these, always. One reason why I delete these is that they tend to scatter email addresses far and wide and that leads to spam, I hate spam.
Because of the military theme a lot of email addresses are military and there are also a number of signature blocks with telephone numbers and postal addresses of military people. That is not good for security.
I am not surprised by this, when I was at Junior Staff College there was a huge folder on "Service Writing", this is the art of writing military letters. The folder must have had about a hundred pages of which perhaps five were given over to email.
So to the various members of RAF, army and MOD staff (including a Squadron Leader at Cranwell and staff at MOD main building), please think before you pass these on.
