    The DF has countered that it has already achieved this number by means of natural
    wastage, medically discharged, etc etc
    And in a much shorter time frame than recommended.... without implementing any of his recommendations (apart from overseas).

      Is the cut of 500 envisaged as a temporary measure until full recruitment returns or is it here to stay?

        The Minister "wants" to keep it above 10,500.

        The strength has been chipped away at over a number of years, establishment is 11,500.

            Incorrect, the current establishment of the DF is 10,500, with 500 of those being in recruit or 3*star training

                It recently dropped below 10000 for the PDF(all arms).

                  It dropped below 10000 last October, and has continued down at approx 1 per day since then. Thats why W. O'D is getting worried.
                  A lot of long service personnel are getting worried at the possible repercussions for their retirement gratuity and pension, if the cuts in pay are applied to these payments at the end of the year. As the year progresses the number of retirements is likely to rise, leaving a vacumn at the top.

                  Unfortunately these people are leaving without all the info, hopefully this will be available before the middle of the year and that will be the time for us to make our decisions

                        So does anyone know if the course is offically cancelled?

                        Does anyone know if this will have an effect of the Std NCO & Snr NCO courses this year?

                          No Std NCO course has been announced, so its fair to say it will not be announced at this stage.
                          What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

                              Interesting - you guys were slated to run it

                              Having said that, E Bde applications for last year's course were in that this stage last
                              year, the notification for the course hit shops near us before Xmas last year

                              So the fact that there' s been notification is strange, considering that dates were
                              announced for it... ?

                              CORRECTION:

                              Must have been the Senior NCO Course dates I spotted....

                                Comfirmed officially in writing EBRDF PNCO Course is not happening in 2010

                                Does anyone know if this will have an effect of the Std NCO & Snr NCO courses this year?
                                There wasn't a Std NCO Course announced for 2010 AFAIK

                                No effect on SNCO Course AFAIK
