    Yea, what I mean is could it have 2xCol, 1xComdt, 3x Cpt and 3x Lt if that was the ranks of the people available?

    It’s the same numbers of MO’s, but the rank is reflecting the individual’s...

    Do appointments have a rank band to do them? For example, I remember the Field Ambulance had an establishment of one nurse, who could be a Lieutenant to Major. Might be one solution?

    Well, that one is easily solved - give them a day off during the week in lieu. If you mean an allowance for working Sat and Sun, why? I was never aware that the army was 9-5 Mon-Fri. (The Air...
