    last time i checked most parade nights start at 19.30 or 20.00. that gives at least 4 hours to each person to organise a lift or show up a little early and change into your uniform in barracks

      we don't all finish work at 1600.
      It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.

        My unit doesn't train in barracks, we train in centers. Due to the sheer size of the area in which the members of my battalion come from it can take up to an hour travel for some of them to get to centers.

        When I started out in the reserve I had school until 4 and then 2 hours of afterschool study. Then I had to run home, shower, get my uniform ready, get something to eat and then leg it to the bus stop. Luckily I was early most of the time.

            I get off college @ 6pm on my training night. That gives me about 90 mins to get home from Maynooth, eat, make myself look respectable etc and make my way up to the J barracks. I'd say very few people have 4 hours to spare between work/school and training.

                  maybe instead of meeting in halss they could parade in a more central location. maybe in the closest barracks. maybe they could provide transport and pick you all up at a collection point.

                  i was told during my rec training many moons ago by my nco's that it was against dfr a9 to wear your uniform in public as it could cause a panic.

                  sure what can you do? if you have to wear your uniform in public you have to do it. just ignore what people say

                    It is acceptable to wear your uniform, going to or coming from parade. It has been discussed before. I will attach the thread later.

                        I've never heard of drying rooms. Is there one in McKee? I doubt the PDF would like [edit]members of the Reserve Defence Forces[/edit] using their ironing rooms.

                            i find this attitude disturbing. of course people will be negative towards the rdf, especially if this is what one of its members thinks what its really all about.

                              I find you disturbing, the fact that someone as simple as you can be allowed to join our df, and have access to firearms!

                              Don't slag off long term members, we are wiser. I was once like you, only with a bigger iq and more cop on, you are only digging a hole!
