    Just to correct a detail from above, the TA had specialist units who had civvy skills the army wanted, but had a reduced commitment of two weekends and two weeks a year. Rather than being regional,...

    Looking at it from my uneducated eye, there would presumably be lots of transferable skills that would make the RW training easier and quicker if FW qualified first. Also, with smaller air arms like...

    True - certain quarters would spin it as a medal to celebrate partition. Politically, no sensible party would want to touch it with a barge pole. It would make “commemorating the Tans” seem like a...
