I was serving when mobiles was becoming main stream (1997), by about 99 we all had one (all useless and expensive). We was never allowed them with us when in uniform/on duty..

When we do base visits, we often have to leave to our phones outside certain locations – avoids people taking photos of items they shouldn’t do.

It reminds me of the news a few years ago about Strava global heat map and military bases in the middle of nowhere… (Wired, Guardian). It was apt, as I had recently gone for a run around RAF Leeming and it hadn’t occured to me…
