    No mention of the RDF in the ministers brief to cabinet last Tuesday, on CoDF, just PDF going to DAA. Is that the real LOA...
    I think you missed a few posts. No memo went to cabinet on Tuesday
    For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.

      • It did not go to cabinet because DPER are fighting a rearguard funding action. Until thats sorted no LOA2. The minister said as much in Defence Questions on Tuesday.
        "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

        "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

                  "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 would also appreciate the same.

                      Yes, I know it'll be on IKON but I've no access and I'll be left waiting if I ask through my own unit.

                        Your EO will have it, just ask him. If he says he does not, tell him go to confession

                          Yes, it has.

                          What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

                              Not for all ranks. 2lT-Lt, and Lt-Capt no career course requirement.

                                Could have been just left out of the “highlights” (hopefully)

                                edit: I see from the last page YO requirement has been left off as a requirement for promotion to Capt

                                there is no career courses for 2/Lt to Lt as far as I know as you can be commissioned as either 2/Lt or Lt (PDF or RDF)
