    1 Cav and 2 Cav are getting their own CRV's fairly soon.Should solve all those problems.
    Having corps as primary units in any location units still limits the establishment of any reserve units within a PDF unit.
    Time for another break I think......

    How did Bray manage to retain a Coy given its proximity to Dublin?

    It is what used to be 3 Coys post 2005.
    An hour from CBB (45 mins with no traffic)
    DOD owned site that couldn't get planning in the good times
    One of the biggest towns in the country

    But I agree

    Not DoD owned - permanent lease that ends when the DF leaves. I think it may even be a free lease but if the DF leaves, they lose access. Cannot sell it or get planning permission as they don't own it. So long as they stay there, they have full access. That is my understanding.

    As I understood it, it was a bequest for as long as the DF wanted it.

    That is indeed the case
    But where is the logic behind holding on to isolated outposts albeit within commuting time of manned posts

    In some cases the facilities are used for ATCP & other PDF things you wouldn't hear about.

    They closed manned posts that did the same thing
    I reckon there might have been political input at some level

    Of course there was, look at the make up of the VFM board:
    - independent chairperson
    - 2 x PDF
    - 3 x DOD
    - 2 x DPER

    As someone had pointed out, the military.ie page has been updated

    http://www.military.ie/careers/reser...n-the-reserve/

    so the rest of the machine is beginning to crank up, watch this space for very soon now.

    I remember during recruit training when we were doing adventure training we slept a night in an FCA training hall in Bally-cabbage and potatoes. Wouldn't have been able to do the training if it wasn't for the hall.

    Worth hanging on to you never know what they might be needed for.
    To close with and kill the enemy in all weather conditions, night and day and over any terrain

    Just looked at it properly:

    http://www.defence.ie/WebSite.nsf/Re...6?OpenDocument


    The DF website is missing 2 x 1 Bde locs and 1 x 2 Bde loc. They have also put 2 x 2 Bde locs into 1 Bde and invented 1 x 2 Bde loc.

    Don't get me started on the contact page.

    you any idea how difficult it is to get a transfer approved?
    i cant get out of my place even WITH a legit reason for it.

    "No, sir. He's a sergeant, and they don't deserve no respect at all, sir. I should know. They're cunning and artful, if they're any good. I wouldn't mind if he was an officer, sir. But sergeants are clever."

    Processing several in and outs at the moment. As long as channels are followed they are happening, no BS.
