    Dev tells most of the story there.

    No other RDF 'grouping' can call itself LUNSR or WUNSR . All the others are part of a Single Force unit e.g. D Coy 7 Bn , 1 MIC AR , 2 CAV AR, 1 BAR AR ....

    You know I know this. It's not the point.

    Yes, for sure. My point was there is no independent units any more since 2012 bar NSR. Everyone reports up into a PDF Unit.

    All RDF routine activity is on hold due the pandemic. Couple of courses doing a bit on conference calls but that only goes so far.

    which is another reason it all needs burning to the ground - its nothing to do with the "local unit" anymore. Every single sub-unit now ( before we go anywhere else) is part of a PDF unit HQ'd in a...

    agreed but the State is adamant that the Reserve is not a job !

    I've got a PQ in the back somewhere proving this. I'll email you.

    It is technically possible ( never been denied) that you can claim travelling expenses to RDF training against tax, since the Gratuity has been abolished.

    IRT your point above

    no recruitment crisis in the PDF, its a retention crisis due to very well known causes. PDF recruitment always over-subscribed without any requirement for local centres...

    meh like I said service must be where the State needs it. Also if I recall the majority of the population do live within range of a manned post.

    Then recruit her in Cork, where she'll parade. No point in false impressions. She's got a smartphone.

    Amen to that. Having rural centres is the tail wagging the dog

    My view is that the local militia idea (LDF) of a "outposts in large towns " reserve is not required. There is no place for it in the white paper and no real need for it in the defence community. ...
