      So basically Reservists would be able to pass Selection because you enjoyed being wet?

          What is the Minimum entry requirement for the Reserve ARW? Call of Duty or Gears of War?


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

            Why not both since it will be so hard core

              HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


              Really now, a Reserve Ranger wing, thats what you tell Newbie's, Idiots and Recruits. This thread is either full of Fail, or Full of Win!!!!


              There will never be a reserve ARW, EVER!!!! And there are not many reservists anyway who could pass it, save a few.

              There are feck all PDF who pass it, and they have had the proper training to do that shite!!!!

              Tell the Truth, are you from one of the Southern Brigade Infantry Bn's????

              Namely, 32 Res Inf Bn??? They are one of those Units that love to talk about this crap!!!!


              HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
              I probably am wrong, sorry about that!!!

              Please PM me to correct me.

              But, not if I state an opinion, only if I state something as truth!!!

              I have bad opinions but I stick by them!!!

                Not a bad idea at all Bagger

                we should be encouraging our troops to aim as high as they can possibly go

                I am glad you enjoyed your 4 days on the Mountain side

                I always enjoyed being out as well - I also enjoyed cribbing and I got even better enjoyment from

                finishing the exercises-

                I doubt that we will ever see a RDF ARW - but who am I to predict the future

                but whats wrong with seeking to improve your abilities, skills, drills and fitness

                to a level of the ARW.

                We used to bring troops down tot he DFTC and do the life tests of the ARW-

                It was a good fitness and pure bollix indicator- and I know that simply doing the tests can never

                reflect a Selection Course- but it gave new found confidence to some of the lads.

                Never knock an idea
                (unless its Vospers then its invariably going to be pants)
                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.

                  The can't even get people to take up integration!!!! The ARW isn't supposed to have an RDF integrated element, what ever about getting a chance to do 3/4 week selection and getting the tab. Reservists are never going to be part of the ARW unless they join the PDF on short term contracts.....

                    Look the powers that be wont even trust us to do CITs so This fantasy of a reserve ARW will remain as such, a fantasy! One word, security.

                      DOnt knock the idea

                      we all know that there wont be an RDF ARW

                      but why shouldnt some enterprising Pl Sgt/Comd train and exercise his troops as if they were

                      going for Selection and I am talking green role not black,

                      let the Platoon learn and be competent with the basics and then

                      add to there drills and skills-

                      Its extremely easy to say no and knock something back as stupid or funny

                      He wishes for the cloths of heaven

                      Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
                      Enwrought with golden and silver light,
                      The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
                      Of night and light and the half-light,
                      I would spread the cloths under your feet:
                      But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
                      I have spread my dreams under your feet;
                      Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.

                        In fairness I would drop everything for a chance to do something like that but I'm just being a realist (pessimist?) here..

                          there is no reason that a reserve ARW unit could not be formed and operate to the same standards of their full time colleagues, everyone else manages it.

                          21 and 23 SAS regularly supply almost all UKSF manpower in Afghanistan, and their officers often command the force. they are reservists, they completed selection - exactly the same selection process as those regular soldiers going for 22SAS - and they do the job to the same standards as their regular counterparts.

                          so, is it that the Irish armed forces are so blighted by a mutilating self-hatred that demands that whatever task or ambition they set for themselves, they should fail spectacularly just to conform to their self image - or that members of the RDF actually are all genetically unable to run as fast, carry as much weight, shoot as well, and train as consistantly as their British, Australian, New Zealand and US colleagues?

                            Reserve SAS units in the UK are made up of ex-SAS and specialists.

                            The reserve elemenmt of the ARW is made up of fomer ARM members.

                            RDF people doing selection? I dont see why not, its a course like any other. One of the reasons the ARW exist is to upskill the Army and anyone involved with the selection course will tell you that taking part in it will imporve your skills regardless of pass or fail.

                              You have to undergo infantry training before you can attempt selection and it takes about 1 yr.
                              They both have officers from 22 SAS to ensure standards are kept high, many are ex regulars or ex22 SAS. Very few people can go off to Borneo for 2 months for phase II selection etc, Infact the course pass rate is around 5% for civilians((Chris Ryan joined this way), so theres controversy over whether its money well spend, or should become part of 4 Para TA as part of the pathfinders.


                              In terms of the RDF, I dont see why they cant have a unit equivilent of the TA honourable artillery company. This is a unit which should also be created in the PDF.
