  • TD, I'm surprised at you. For someone who spent many the hour debating weighty matters after hours to express surprise. Come January I can see you in the corner with your ould Glengarry on, inside out and back to front
    I'm not a number, I'm a free man.
    Who is number 1?

      My travels continue apace, unfortunately....

        "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.

              It isn't discrimination in any way. Most people applied for all brigades.

                Presumably that is where the powers-that-be see the most pressing needs ?

                  It's Bde specific recruitment as obviously certain Bde's have manpower issues, however you don't have to live within the Bde area to apply

                  • There are alot of rumors that the easternbde will be recruiting in march,they put the top 150 people that applied in the last recruitment on a waiting list so I wonder if that means they will be recruiting more than 1 platoon next time

                      It's a lot more then 150. There are at least 500 people on the waiting list. I know one person who's number is in the mid 400's.

                      Thats in the Southern Bde anyways.

                        The western Bde applicants who didn't get to the medicals but passed the interview were sent an e-mail telling them that they would be contacted, in the new year, with their placement number for consideration later in 2011, when they hope to recruit again.
