Hi Folks

I have moved up to Laois from wicklwo where I was with 10Inf. Can I transfer to artillery 3 in Templemore? What formalities are required?

Thanks for your help

I did the opposite in 1992 (moving from Artillary to Infantry). The process is quite simple, you turn up on their parade night (preferably in uniform), report to the regiment/battery office, identify yourself and tell them you want to transfer. It would be helpful if you could give them a name of one of your cadre staff (as the actual paperwork transfer is done during work hours by cadre), it would also be helpful to have informed your former unit of your intention.

As regards to what you can do. Well it depends on your rank, fortunately Artillary units have within their establishment appointments which are "infantry based" so you will be able to retain your rank, however to actualy take part in gun crews, OPs, CPs etc you will have to pass the required course (some are internal and some are performed by the Artillary School).

Once it has been established that you are who you say you are, you should be able to attend training nights while your paperwork is being transfered. It took 3 months for my paperwork to work its way to the 20 Bn in 1992 (and I insisted on wearing my old unit flash and being referred to as Gunner until my transfer was published).

Call up to their parading night sometime in civvies,meet the cadre staff and discuss with them your intention to transfer. They should tell you the situation. Try to meet some of the unit members also of your own rank if possible..just to make your assimilation easier..
Most people I have found are only to happy to welcome an experienced member.
Be sure to mention it to your own cadre staff too. Nothing can delay these things than cadre staff hearing things second hand..Its a simple procedure usually:rolleyes:

To be fair to the powers that be..In our case there are certain unique circumstances.
Most transfers (that I know of) can take a while. I know of one individual who paraded with a unit for almost 2 years somewhere along the way deciding he may as well transfer. By the time the transfer got through he had moved back to his old unit! That was an Infantry-artillery move also.
The main thing is to get a foot in the door,so they have a face to put to the paperwork..

Looks like Im off to a unit in Dublin in the next few weeks.

Can anyone tell me what gear Im supposed to have issued to me already? Ive a feeling Im missing bits and I reckon I should try have the full set before I go. I presume my new unit wont want to be issuing me stuff in the first year anyway!

Any thoughts?

Current RDFRA newsletter gives the complete list.

It can be downloaded from www.rdfra.ie in Adobe Acrobat format

The rdfra does not give the complete list,it gives a proposed list of what may be issued after intigration.

I don't think you're right Goldie Fish.

The RDFRA newsletter gives the existing issue on Enlistment and what extra is issued just prior to the first period of Full Time Training. This was effective from March 17 last year.

Bravo20, could you confirm?

Until R5 update or replace you are entitled only to what is in R5 Appendix G

http://www.rdfra.ie/DFR_R_5/appendices.htm#APPENDIX%20G.

(edit : if you are an Other Rank )
And before you start. That's what RDFRA have on their site - so it's all you can go on.

The last documented DPM clothing issue list was

2 Shirts (1 initial and 1 before attending 1st annual training)
2 Trousers (1 initial and 1 before attending 1st annual training)
2 T shirts (initial)
1 Smock

As regards the other items (socks, boots etc) see R5 above.

Iv'e been in the FCA for over 2 years and i'm looking for a change from Infantry. I am interested in th MP's even though everyone in my coy will probably shoot me, i am hoping to do a Law degree next year and maybe at the same time get a transfer to a corps unit. I haven't got the slightest clue of what they do in the RDF MP's and im just guessing that they do just the usual square bashing like eveyone else and then sporadic bursts of activity around annual camp and ARP time. Do pots do the same course as Infantry, Cav etc. ?, and is it harder to go up through the ranks compared to the numerically larger infantry units ?.
I'm guessing if i get to do a Law course the MP's would be the obvious choice in terms of relativity to my skills. Of course i'm looking at the cops after Uni so can anyone give me advice on transfers in general and life in the MP's specifically???

Big Al
1st February 2004, 02:42
You have to apply to your CO, giving a reason for your request (e.g. i am doing law and feel the PA's is more suitable) The PA's dont do the PNCO courses that the inf do, they do their own (provost??) course, which can take about 18 months. Why not go on attachment to see if you like it and that way see what they do. Attachments are handled in the same way as transfers.

And your right, everyone in your coy will shoot you.

2nd February 2004, 11:15
Now now Goldie, there are a number of solicitors in the PA's/MP's and doctors in the medics (or is that doctor and the medics?) so it's a reasonable link to make.

MP's do their own 2* 3* and pot NCO training., own standard NCO crse and then go on infantry officers courses.

The 1st in Cork and the 3rd in Limerick are soon to be amalgamated (just FYI)

They squarebash etc, but also do some tactical MP stuff, investigation procedure, supposedly read up on military law and learn how to open and close gates, 50 times a night on camp. oh and park traffic at shoots. think that's it. let me know if anyone else has more info for our infantry brother.

You are right T.I.M, P/A's don't do pots course's as you know it, they do an 18 month probationers course covering all on the pots course except tactics (MOI, foot and Arms drill ,provost ops and much more).The tactics end is covered as a recruit and two star and the grand finale of the 18 months is a 48 hour ex .
As someone who's done both the probationers and the pots (the glen '98 fmolloy will remember that one), the 2 weeks on the pots may have been hard work but it was only two weeks .Try doing it every week for 18 months, that takes a bit more commitment .
The lovely hats as you call it is something we work hard to get. The bad attitude is something we save especially for people with the lack of grasp to realise we too have a job to do.

Hi All,

Just a few questions for ya.. Im moving to Dublin next week and Id really like to transfer from my own RDF infantry unit "down da country" to the Cavalry unit in Dublin. Its Cathal Brugha yeah?

Im a corporal, so Im just wondering what the story would be with transferring, and courses etc. Id like to get to do some driving, FFRs, Trucks etc, and in all my 5 years in the RDF I still havent got near any APCs.

I only ever got a basic issue of DPMs, so Im wondering do I ask my own unit for all the stuff I should have got.. Nametags, Fleeces, etc or do I wait until Im transferred?

How do I go about getting into the Cav anyway? Is it a case of just going there on a parade night and introducing myself and taking it from there?

Thanks!
Boots

If your unit hear you are transferring, you will get NOTHING!!! They will not issue you anything if they think you are moving. However, being a corporal, you should have all of it anyway. I think your Q is holding out on you.

I didnt get the stuff because I was away from my unit for 6 months or so due to college.

Now I know Im moving to Dublin, so is it best to do with the gear I have and then ask my new unit for it after a while?

Maybe I am suited to the cav.. Ive had family in the PDF Cav and they have thought me how sacred the Glengarry is! I'll be sure to treat it with the respect it deserves if/when I get it.

Some nametags and a norweigan would be nice too though. :(

You have a few options so

But i know alot of people have problems when looking for a transfer as their unit wants to keep them on the books

If it is a case where you are there temporarily (eg college) look to be attached to the unit instead

Your new unit will not give you anything till your paperwork goes through, and that could take a while. Transfers can get messy. If your old unit decide to hold it up, then it can get very messy. Your new unit will usually use the time to evaluate you and get to know you. If they believe that you will put in the time, then you should have no problem being issued with everything you are supposed to have.

While you are waiting for your transfer to go through, use the time to get to know your new unit. Show them that you are committed to training with them and you will be in a good position when your transfer finally goes through. If you go cav, you may be issued with the remainder of your uniform when you get your glen.

Also note..... This should not be about your uniform. Don't transfer just to get the Norge and other stuff. It should be a bonus, not an end goal.

Boots
9th March 2004, 19:16
Thats absolutely not my reason for transferring. I want to learn something new and make a new start in another unit. I like the idea of using different equipment etc. My question about the gear was just an aside.. nothing to do with my decision to transfer whatsoever. I really dont want anyone to think Im doing it for the gear I didnt get at home.I have plenty enough to keep me going.

just a quick querry lads regards transfering. I'm currently a Cpl in a med coy and have submitted a transfer to a mp coy. How long (usually) should the transfer take, whats the likelyhood of me maintaining my stripes once i transfer? or will i be put back to 3*

Bravo20
10th November 2004, 18:43
The actual transfer of documents can take a while (the army post system is the true definition of snail mail). Assuming you have allready contacted the MP unit you want to go to there should be no reason why you cannot train with them from now on. Until your paperwork arrives you will be on attachment to them. There is a specific course required to be an MP corporal so you may have to revert until you complete the course, again your target unit should explain this to you. Of course if you have not got agreement from the MP unit you are joining there is no guarantee that your transfer request will be accepted by them.

[PS It took my transfer 3 months, however I transfered units and brigades 12 years ago)

T.I.M, it is specifically laid down (think in DFR R5) that a reduction in rank may be a

15th November 2004, 21:05
correct, but it mainly applys to transfers from corps to line units, a mp cpl may not have the required training to carry out a line cpl's tasks, theres nothing saying that you HAVE to get demoted in order to do the provist marshall course. just means you havent got the right to wear the red berret.

Im thinking of changing units for a number of reasons that i wont go into. However, a mate of mine is still waiting for his transfer to go through 5 months after he put in a transfer and is now stuck in limbo not training with either unit. How long does it take to transfer, if it does take nearly half a year would now be a good time to go because of the summer break which i wont be here for anyway and would it be ready for kick off in september or will all this amalgamation and crap get in the way

Bravo20
7th February 2005, 15:00
First step. Make contact with the unit you want to transfer to. Get their buy in (it will help speed things up).
Step two. Make your request for transfer in writing to your current unit.
Step three. Follow up on significant delays i.e. if you haven't heard anything within 1 month of your request.

Opportunity step, as part of the re-org all positions will be advertised within each brigade. Apply for a position within the unit you want to transfer. If you are a private there probably won't be any advertisement for positions so when the other advertisements go out put in your request.

Note: If the unit you want to transfer to is interested in having you there is generally no problem with parading with them, and thus keeping up your hours and your interest. The key is not let your application be buried. If you don't get a written response to your request (either yes or no) then consider the redress route.

Correct, Bravo 20.

HappeninMyLv, you won't get a promotion in your parent unit because you're not

All depends on who you know really. As an attachment you're still a member of your own unit so it's not the responsibility of the other unit to put you on courses. If your already above the rank of private you could only attach to that unit so as to still be able to parade on a wed. night. transferring would only be possible if they had a position available for an officer/NCO in the unit. And by the way, My officers are very understanding of my situatuation. I still parade when i can and i go to all my field days with them, I'll always be in that unit. Also, they promoted me already last yr after spending a yr attached to tpt in cork so my position is still good in my home unit( Provided i dont do anything to piss them off in the near future.)

Dont even bother. If anybody wants to know how the next 4 pages of this thread will go just look up Limerick on the search engine.

I will be joining the reserves soon.Do you think there would be much of a problem in transfering to another unit when I go to collage and back at the summer time.

Yes

Unit hopping is not encouraged. However if you reach a sufficient level of training in your unit it is possible to go "on attachment" to another unit. This then allows for returning

You transfer all the time?
I don't know about the PDF but the RDF don't make it that easy to transfer.

Unless the unit wants to get rid of you :confused: :confused: :biggrin:

I have transfered twice, both times accross command (it was a few years ago). Both times took nearly 3 mths for the paperwork to go through.

2 other guys I know took almost a year.

Another guy came from sligo on attachment. Paper work took about 3 weeks. But when he decided to transfer it took years to get the paper work.

Hi all, Im a sgt in the ADR with about 10 years unbroken service living in the east cork area. Thinking of a transfer to a cav or other corps unit in the area.A change is as good as a rest so they say!! Met a few cav lads on bere during the summer. Any idea where to go or how to do it?

Might not be too easy transfer at same rank if there is no vacancy you may have to drop a rank,but check it out.

Its impossible to transfer to Cav in the south as a Sgt at the moment. Some of us who did are in limbo, on detachment. Others are attached to BTC, but parading with(and for all intents and purposes) a part of 31 Cav.
They won't let you drop a rank either for some reason. I'm not gonna say they'd welcome you with open arms, as I am not in a position to speak for the unit. Best bet is give Clonmel a call.

But the way things are going with non integrated reserve, I'd stay where I was if I were you.

Is that a cav or local rule?

We have had on or two sgts transfer in and the dropped to cpl due to no sgt vacancy.

It's in R5 that a demotion may be required when doing an inter Corps transfer,
subject to vacancies being available in the receiving unit

Go on attachment... it's simpler.

Although if you want to be a Sgt. there are vacancies across the land.

no no lads, not looking for a pip ar even a rusty sherrifs badge above my stripes.just looking for a change from adr. iv a full bike+car licence if that would help the cav angle. might try parading but the parent unit would be liable to get shitty and take it as a snub which in these small corps sub units is always the way
