    Public speaking isnt a problem, but I am a medic so my infantry skills arent the greatest. Its not often we do tactics.

    If you would like I have alot of doc's that would be full of knowledge I can send you. MODS, would that be ok? Also if you could, maybe see about training with an Infantry battalion during their Summer camp this year. My own battalion will be doing a week of tactics this year

    Which brigade are you based in?
    I went into an Italian restaurant and ordered dessert and they gave me tiramisu and a blindfolded horse and I said No, I said mask a pony (mascarpone)

    Don't send anything that is restricted to anyone that you do know know.
    “Fellow-soldiers of the Irish Republican Army, I have just received a communication from Commandant Pearse calling on us to surrender and you will agree with me that this is the hardest task we have been called upon to perform during this eventful week, but we came into this fight for Irish Independence in obedience to the commands of our higher officers and now in obedience to their wishes we must surrender. I know you would, like myself, prefer to be with our comrades who have already fallen in the fight—we, too, should rather die in this glorious struggle than submit to the enemy.” Volunteer Captain Patrick Holahan to 58 of his men at North Brunswick Street, the last group of the Four Courts Garrison to surrender, Sunday 30 April 1916.

    Im in the Southern Brigade, I'll most likely be doing medic cover on an Infantry camp ths summer, so I should get my TOET's redone if i ask nicely Already know most of the basics of tactics from my recruit camp, plus doing cover on tactical exercises. Just need to know the more advanced stuff and practice
