  • If you were conspiratorially minded you'd think they was all part of the plan....degrade the NS, maybe the AC too until they can't function than privatise as much as you can...

      Partially correct.

      A joint class of Army/Navy recruits is in training in Collins Bks.

      The Navy recruits are only completing the first module (shooting and marching etc)

      The remaining Naval modules are to be conducted in HB.

      They are enlisted as Naval recruits so no transferring during training.

          The Irish Examiner yesterday, highlights the continuing drain on NS Strengths and ineffective measures to contain losses of personnel. The Departmental policies have caused most of the problem and Service in-house efforts will not solve it. Trying to find trained replacements on High Street is Utopian, we have to do it ourselves from candidates recruited by continuous means.
          As I pointed out the management and narrow focus of the Department of Defence has sieved the benefits enjoyed by members of the PDF and their families. Provisions common to many Armies have gone but the one most causative of loss of strengths is lack of accommodation for families and personnel. The opening statement on housing in the British army states " the Armed Forces and families are able to live in high quality subsidised accommodation both in the UK and overseas, either at OR close to their place of work." JSP 464 is the policy document for the provision of Defence living accommodation. The classes of accommodation provided for is Single Living accommodation ( SLA), Substitute Single Service Accommodation (SSSA), Service Family Accommodation (SFA) and Substitute Service family Accommodation (SSFA). Obviously SLA is within barracks and if there is insufficient, suitable accommodation it is provided from the local market by Services Housing Office. Their future model FAM) to ensure a career and better work-life balance is by having the option to live in rented accommodation OR buy a home with funding from MOD.
