    Introduction of IT2000 tests could rid us of a lot of that sort of recruit. Better training would improve the image of the RDF and weed out the no-hopers. Yes, we still receive orders to go easier on recruits so as not to scare them away. There's no need for bullying - treat all of them equally bad.

      A pass fail yearly Fitness Test is the one of many options open to improve our image. If we ditch the wasters first day with a fitness test on application to join. It could work. Training would also has to be improved that is a fact. That is a fact.

          This Guy has to be a ex FCA man. When I was in my recruit training we had a load of FCA boys who'd joined up. The funny thing was that from the moment they arrived on barracks they were giving their former collegues some terrible stick. Absolute empty heads.I have to say that as a general rule they made better and more enthusiastic soldiers than the rest of us. It was great to see them get their rifles for the first time , they were a bunch of gunnuts really. As for myself and the other lads with no history in the FCA , we just saw it as a job and that the rifles and uniforms while being fairly cool were just another bloody thing we had to clean. The FCA boys showered them with loving attention. So I suppose I do worry about a bunch of people who'd rather spend a night freezing in the glen holding a Steyr than a week of loving with a member of the opposite sex. The thing is , they are good soldiers and I'd be all for them having a more active role(i can say that now that I've left). They do frighten me a bit though, I mean who could do all that for fun unless you are mad???

              Fair play to ya Lancer, I think you've summed up the FCA rather well, as the saying goes, "you don't have to be mad but it helps!"

                Mad as a march hair but man enough to say it.

                If we didn't like it we wouldn't do it.
                As posted before the bad attitude towards the RDF comes mainly from disgruntled former members who couldn't have as cushy anumber as they though in the DF.

                No doubt this guy will retire in a number of years from now sit in the pub and rcount his many happy years in the army
