  • I see the NSR are at it again, passing out recruits. We're they from the last campaign or how long are they in since their induction. Seem like the AR recruitment has ground to a halt.

      Anyone involved in the AR recruitment process will be able to identify the bottleneck that has developed, and unfortunately, it is one that is unlikely to be resolved any time soon.
      What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

      • But I thought that this was all prearranged? Were there to many applicants or just poor planning again.

                Reward for arranging recruitment maybe, but all the same to see.
                Overseas courses are now being planned by DJ7 for funding and inclusion for TED, get your case in through CoC, Bn and Bde G7s for Reservists in your unit. Make sure its fully costed, flights, food etc. If your unit Officers don't make a submission call them out. The info is freely available on the Internet. The mould is broken, make sure they know by submitting real relevant cases.

                  Look again. Those are Desert boots. Not standard issue ones.
                  "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.

                    its the other way round . What if you were phoned and told you were going on a 3 month residential in Mons ( or wherever) in 3 weeks time. take it or leave it, its the only vacancy in your corps speciality for the next 8 years. , the boss needs someone to fill it as the pdf lad in the frame has a sick baby ( or has to fill a slot in an overseas must-fill vacancy ). These are not jollies. The law says we can serve overseas but it also says we cant hold posts overseas so its always gonna be TDY

                    • OK don't put them in and wait for the call which may come for a very select few.
