      It’s pretty childish putting this argument down to men vs. women – it’s not that simple. As far as I am concerned it is about less capable soldiers getting places on courses before those more deserving. In my experience this mainly comes from two groups – the kids of RDF Officers/SNCOs and Cadre; and females.

      Says who? obviously if they (women) were nominated for the thing in the first place then someone in their unit thinks they're up to the job
      Who makes the decisions – Officers and cadre. Go figure.
      "Why, it appears that we appointed all of our worst generals to command the armies and we appointed all of our best generals to edit the newspapers. I mean, I found by reading a newspaper that these editor generals saw all of the defects plainly from the start but didn't tell me until it was too late. I'm willing to yield my place to these best generals and I'll do my best for the cause by editing a newspaper"
      Gen. Robert E. Lee

        I don't know how it is done in other units but in my unit the process is as follows:
        1. The decision to put someone on a course rests with the Coy Comdr (This organisation is not a democracy and he is in charge).
        2. The Coy Comdr will make his decision based on the following:
        a) His own opinion of the potential candidate.
        b) Recommendations from 2ic, Coy Sgt, Pln Comdr, Pln Sgt.
        3. He will be allocated a number of places from Bn who in turn got it from brigade. If there are more potential candidates than places, inteviews will take place.

        Fortunately we do not have any sons/daughters of serving officers/NCOs or Cadre in our unit. As regards to the male/female split, if your average recruit platoon has more than a section of females then you will need a female NCO.

          Yes i agree but not 5 bloddy b****h's for about 6 females pte's, You'd swear that they think wearing stripes is a right to act like their Permanantly PMT'd. And dont even get me started on the Quality of Female Ossifers that i've had to deal with.

          (Above post is based on MY expierence, not on the whole of the RDF, just incase any male and female feminists want to start taking aim)

            Cadre should not be making the decision - the Cadre's job is in a support role to the unit...

              That's the way the military works TD. I spent 25 years in the PDF and it's just the same. The face has to fit, you have to be well in etc. Don't expect fairness or equity.
              The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity.

                      Don't mean to sound sexist, but what is the proportion of men to women in the DF? And should it not be the best person for the job, not the army trying to be fair that decides who gets the courses
                      What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.
