  • PDF POT's Requirements?

    Got into an arguement with a mate over this, which was funny cos neither of us had a clue what we were on about.

    So what are they?

    what are what
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

      Just a wild guess.


      Be in the PDF.
      Be a 3*
      Be recommended for the course.

          Sorry wasn't clear enough. My fault.

          I was wondering what the requirements were for say a serving private in the PDF to qualify for the PDF potential NCO's course? Forget about recommendations by CO's. I'm just wondering about fitness requirements and service records. i.e. do you have to have a clean sheet, would you have to have gone overseas, do you have to be a private for a certain amount of time before you are eligible for it?

            It would be the same as the RDF only the RDF course would be much more difficult.

            sits back.

              Of course it is, cos its squeezed into a much smaller amount of time so therefore its naturally more difficult.

                      Plus the clincher, the dropout/failure rate on the RDF one is higher. Which proves its more difficult.

                          Its only difficult because most of the students have only just managed to learn

                          that reading and writing lark

                          and most of the students have to juggle the Pots cse witht eh junior cert

                            I think what he'd like to know if one was a good PDF 3* how long would it take before being put on a PNCO's course?

                              A requirement now is that you have two years sevice.Not sure how rigidly thats being enforced though.
                              "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.
