Sorry to have to say this, but I am receiving a number of PMís/messages from people requesting the DDS/BA discount link/password who are obviously not DDS members or members of HM Armed Forces/MOD staff.

To be clear, if you request the link and/or password, you will be asked a question that only bona-fide DDS members can answer before you will receive the offer link/password details.

Alternatively, the link/password can be sent to an official MOD (@mod.gov.uk) e-mail address.

I am happy to forward the link/password details to entitled personnel once entitlement is established, but if you are not so entitled, please do not ask for the link/password.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Barney.
Hi. Are you able to PM me password? Happy to answer a DDS question. Thank you

It is important to be a member of DDS first before asking here. DDS has its own joining criteria and that is the starting point. I hope all those who have been asking have also been in touch with DDS to remind them to reinstate the link. They took it off since it wasn't reliably working - well we all know what BA's IT is like - but it's better to show up in their catalogue than not.
