    Quick comment on something you said Bravo20.
    Were you aware that in the PDF 2stars are still classed as recruits. You aren't officially a PTE until you have done the advanced infantrymans course (ie the 3star course)

    Don't pay for issue items. It is a case of your CQ not bothering his arse to do his job.

    Bravo20,

    I have nothing to do with the 2 Stars but I do know our CQ has been told there's none availible..

    I know a former member of our unit who is finishing his 2 star training in the PDF they were told they'd get sliders before their passing out parade.(I bet anyone €20 they will)

    I have been asking for Cpl's Stripes (as all other ranks have been asking for our scale of issue i.e. 4 Rank markings each) for EXACTLY a year now but am always told the same i.e. CQ/SGT/CPL in the clothing stores said there are none. If you happen to be lucky enough to go into the store's you will see plastic tubs full of sliders, when asked you're told that a PDF unit has a requesition for gear in and they are being kept for them!!

    Same old story. We might get the same uniform now but the excuse is still the same "The stores are out of stock, thats not in your scale of issue, the PDF will get them before you etc. etc.

    Bailer, Have you asked for them? and have you been refused them? If you answer yes to both questions then contact RDFRA and something will be done.

    I Can see the Problem already there's 2 PDF plt's about to pass out as 2 stars in the Barracks. If their is Rank markings in the Stores availible they will get them regardless if their only going to wear them for 8 weeks!!

    Thats why they're not being issued!!

    The point is medic they are there (in stores) and should be issued. You can stay a two star for up to a year and it is necessary to be distinguished from a recruit (Hey 2 stars need someone they can look down on too)

    quick question

    ok lads and ladettes, you have me intrigued.
    What the **** is the big deal about rank markings?
    They don't make you a better soldier. and believe me if you are a 2star the NCO's in your unit will know you're a 2star the same way you know they are NCO's.
    If they took the stripes off would you be unable to recall the fact they were nco's

    Things sound pretty bad in limerick in relation to issue of clothing. Why don't you try and get RDFRA involved urgently. It's a downright scandal you've got individuals in since last September and they've yet to be issued kit.

    I'm sure once the stores are finished being renovated they will be shut for a 3 month stock take.

    the stuff is there in Limerick alright, but as always it's who you know!! The stores were closed for renovation (??) but stuff should start flowing now.
