    The following have been issued today to all res units in the East

    Joining Instructions for Collective Recruit Training 2011
    Joining Instructions for Pre-Course Orientation Training for Instructors Cse 2011
    "Fellow-soldiers of the Irish Republican Army, I have just received a communication from Commandant Pearse calling on us to surrender and you will agree with me that this is the hardest task we have been called upon to perform during this eventful week, but we came into this fight for Irish Independence in obedience to the commands of our higher officers and now in obedience to their wishes we must surrender. I know you would, like myself, prefer to be with our comrades who have already fallen in the fight - we, too, should rather die in this glorious struggle than submit to the enemy." Volunteer Captain Patrick Holahan to 58 of his men at North Brunswick Street, the last group of the Four Courts Garrison to surrender, Sunday 30 April 1916.

          "He is an enemy officer taken in battle and entitled to fair treatment."
          "No, sir. He's a sergeant, and they don't deserve no respect at all, sir. I should know. They're cunning and artful, if they're any good. I wouldn't mind if he was an officer, sir. But sergeants are clever."

              Surely its advertised?

              you know like in the the media when they report that the DF is recruiting or not.

              Somewhere there is a post. I think its something 500 accross the 3 bdes with certain units allocated specific numbers.

              I am sure Trell or Zulu could be more specific but otherwise use the search function, I could be wrong but I do think the answer is out there.

                I'm pretty sure I saw that information on the recent RDFRA news page

                  A "further 200" across the country according to our new Minister for Defence, who justified this on the basis that we shouldn't recruit people we can't send on camp (and he had just slashed the money allocated for RDF man-days!).

                  This is the same person who expects us to believe that he didn't understand the question here:

                    What happens is that the number of recruits allowed to be recruited is made known to the Director, who parcels them out as he sees fit.

                      178 RDF recruits were allowed recently split as follows:
                      1 S Bde RDF - 50
                      2 E Bde RDF - 50
                      4 W Bde RDF - 68
                      NSR - 10

                      There are 400 two week training places available for recruits. The DF believe that there are 222 recruits enlisted (prior to this) who have not done their FTT. Now if only they would actually tell the units that these people are entitled to two weeks this year.

                        when will said recruits be informed if they are chosen ?

                          probably September

                            About time. Well at least we now know the RDF is not getting scrapped in the next 6months if they are planning this far ahead...in saying that though, would you be surprised?

                            Hopefully this albeit small injection of fresh meat might rid us of some of the stagnancy thats infecting the RDF at the moment.
