    AC & NS personnel overseas

    Talking about overseas as in the tradition ground based on eg IRISHFINBATT with UNIFIL

    Is there the same contractual obligation on members of the NS & AC to serve overseas to extend etc the contracts?

    I'm not sure about the NS but it is the case for the AC as far as I'm aware.

    It's an absurd policy and downright dangerous to have people serving in Infantry roles who aren't part of the Infantry Corps.

    TBH my thinking was there are quite a high number on the Leb trip compared to the size of the services and the number of vacancies they have

    NS and AC would still have had more infantry training than RDF bods even before pre deployment training danno get real.
    Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.

    Not any more.
    Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?

    Maybe at some stage, when they were recruits. As for when they become Airmen, Seamen etc? Not a hope.

    I'd take an RDF body with 5 years in the Infantry with me overseas as a rifleman quicker than I would an Airman or Seaman with 5 years service in the respective jobs.
