    Second Report
    of the
    Independent Monitoring Group
    December 2008


    [B]The Reserve Defence Force (RDF) forms part of the Defence Forces. However, the
    IMG agreed that it was not feasible to include consideration of the RDF in this
    review
    . [/B]The RDF has been engaged in a comprehensive process of re-organisation and
    phased improvement in training, equipment and capability. The structure of the RDF
    now mirrors that of the PDF. Of course, the RDF retains its status as a voluntary
    organisation. The IMG is aware that since 2004 the Human Resource Management
    (HRM) Section of the Defence Forces organised an awareness campaign, bringing
    various groups from the RDF together for a full briefing with relevant information and
    materials on the challenges of the Dignity Charter.

    Just received this. Any comments on the opening 2 lines??

    What a cop out

    Lets start the campaign here Taxpayers demand the reviewer bot be paid until the job is done properly including the RDF
    OK Smith it’s Colonel Decker. I hate it when a plan comes together. You’re surrounded. I want you and Peck and Baracus, to throw out your weapons, all the ration packs you stole and come out with your hands up. You have fifteen seconds.

      It is quite clear, that as far as the DoD are concerned, the RDF are not entitled to the same rights as the PDF.

      The report makes for great reading though.
      I know Apod will agree with much of it.


      Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

          "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.

                I read it this morning. Some excellent recommendations. Perhaps Hedgehog might like to take a read. Some of the recommendations around Specialized Instructor Courses and noting finally around the A7 issue is worth a read.

                  From what you have said here in the past relating to the "softly softly" approach.

                    I note the male Cadet on the front cover of the report is a former RDF member
