    FCA have been escorting their own weapons and ammunition to the ranges for decades. No reason in the world they couldn't escort cash, which is no more and no less attractive to many criminals that a truckload of assault rifles.
    Take these men and women for your example.
    Like them, remember that posterity can only
    be for the free; that freedom is the sure
    possession of those who have the
    courage to defend it.

    Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.

    If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.

      i dont think thats the issue, reliability is the key you can order a PDF to be there tuesday morning at 8am for an escort. But what if an FCA man does not turnup, the escort has to go ahead.

        If there was proper pay and Job security, this wouldn't be an issue.

          Is there a big issue about RDF not turning up to duties? Anyone in my unit turns up once they agree to the duty unless there sick and if there sick they get a cert. Actually last time I was doing a duty there was trouble over a PDF lad who was ether sick or just hadn't turned up (they werent sure).

            The problem is that the PDF want the RDF to be able to drop everything and report for duties if required. i. you are needed for a cash escort next monday at 1100hrs. What the PDF don't seem to be able to understand is that most of us have jobs that we have to look after and our bosses don't particuliarly like the idea of being told we need a day off every week to work for someone else.

              We had terrible trouble in this bks when FCA pers were utilized for regt duties during a training period for an Ex a couple of years ago. You could pretty much count on at least one absentee each day, and this was meant to be a dedicated panel of people who had VOLUNTEERED for temp duty. This isn't necessarily an accurate reflection on reservists as a whole, or even these particular people; it transpired that some of the cock-ups were the responsibility of the PDF cadres of the units from where they were drawn.

              1100? Try again, more like 0600 (in some cases).

                There can be cases of people who have volunteered and those who are volunteered.

                In the days before paypath, every camp involved a cash escort to go to the bank to collect the pay.

                    I am concerned about the nature of this discussion. Please refrain from discussing specifics of security arrangements,departure times etc,or the thread will be closed.

                    I am not closing it for now as you lot will only start whining again.


                    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

                      I have no idea what time they leave at.... I used 1100hrs as an example.

                            Its Aid To Civil Power. Something the RDF do not do,until there is a change in legislation.
