      Hi all,

      I think you should go for it, if its what you want to do. I think your long enough in the tooth to get on with any rubbish that comes your way if your experience is on the mark. it will be fun for you if that is what your into.
      Some great points on both sides of the fence re the argument... but im FOR it.

        If you are Southern Brigade, then you had better get moving fast as you have a training weekend this weekend coming and it is your last chance to get on recruit training this year

          Starting recruit training shortly - anyone got any advice/hints or tips for me?
          Fair play to ya

          Immediate tip - start running - passing fitness testing came in with the new revision of the RDF Recruit Trg Syllabus (2011), and this has to be
          passed prior to going on FTT in the summer

                Good to see recruitment has been sanctioned for the RDF again.

                  Please let us know what part of Ireland you are in. If you are in the East there are certain people due a phonecall for not letting me know.

                    E Bde RDF is supposedly recruiting at minute ... about ten per company... go up this week to your local unit anyone that wants to be recruited, would be my advice.... and that was the last rumour I had heard.

                        Jaysus, I wonder do my mob know that ? Currently, we have three recruits in Module 1 training

                        According to the syllabus, part of Module 1 is done by the parent unit, the remainder, plus Module 2 is done by the BTC (or designated unit)

                        But accroding to one of the Trg NCOs, there is catch up going on, and they are being compelled to do as much of Module 1 themselves as they can, to
                        ensure the bods are correctly prep'd

                        From what I know, they have slots boxed off with an Inf Bn to do their summer Module 2 training

                          Someone is telling porkies wrt recruitment. Caveat: may only apply to the East, and it may well be me telling the porkies. Finally, is the 2011 syll not withdrawn still ? Chuckles ...

                              just checking to make sure you're still awake, I know what you're doing. But I had thought it had been kiboshed from on high.

                                No they are doing it properly now i.e. with the appropriate timelines instead of making us cram it into a quarter of the time allocated like last year.
