  • "Subs" in the PDF

    I've found out that I am on the subs list for PDF training. What will this mean in terms of training? I found-out over the phone so I don't much info on "subs" and what thay do. Any info will be nice.
    Thanks in advance!

    Apparently there is a panel of 20 subs and if there are non-showers on the day that the recruit platoon gets sworn in then the shortfall is made up from the subs.
    I don't know if the next recruit platoon is then drawn form the subs panel and the shortfall made up of new recruits, perhaps someone else can answer this.
    And also how many recurit platoons are each brigade planning on taking in and what is the time frame??

        Subs are also used to replace the few who will get scared of the abuse dished out to them in the first few weeks.

          How long into the recruit traing can a sub be called in to repalce someone? I persume it as to be in the first few weeks?

            I'm not sure but I do know that they replaced people in my platoon a few weeks after training began. The later replacements were ex-soldiers anyway so they did not need as much training. If my memory serves me correctly, they replaced about 5 guys with at least 1-2 leaving in the first 2 days. Then after a few weeks they did not replace those who left.

                      Morpheus, scenario: you have applied for the pdf ,there are 20 vacancies, you are number 23, you are not getting the job unless at least three people dropout. You are a sub.

                      Also shortened word for submarine.....but thats a different story.

                      Regards etc

                          A sub is, as in football,anyone "on the bench" ie in reserve.

                          Anyone = rdf or civvie.

                          The age limit is 25, there is no allowance for rdf service.

                              Have you looked at NS recruitment? It has happened on the past that people to old to join the Army have joined the NS for a few years then transferred.
                              .
                              .
                              .
                              With 50,000 men getting killed a week, who's going to miss a pigeon?
