    Congratulations sir

    As an aside, I see Col McKenna's previous appointment was D Inf - the previous holder of D Inf wasn't that long in that appointment, was he?

    I think the previous D Inf is now the CMC or is possibly overseas. That appointment changes probably every 12-18 months

    I never knew we had an SEA .... still a vacant post in the RDF . If we had to change anything I would match the number of BSMs to the Lt Cols to ensure things happened.

    Long overdue. I may be wrong but I think she was in the fourth cadet class to accept women, the first two being all female.
    Its not that long ago, in the scheme of things.

    Impressive CV from the new ACOS
    Fate whispers to the warrior, "There is a storm coming"

    And the warrior whispers back "I am the storm".

    I'm just shocked that the 59th Cadet class are now Generals. I'm not that old surely?
    This was the same class the members of whom were seen getting their pips in the Infamous Defence Forces handbook of the mid 80s (in the days before internet, this and the cosantoir diary was the only information source on the Defence Forces).

    In context the ex (RDF) man was slating the current state of the reserve and the lack of near anything from the DOD (not the DF) . Said Colonel defended the current white paper process ( and the room was full of senior PDF who looked at this a little askance )
    "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

    I suppose if you promise to be a DoD yes man, you get promoted quicker. Most unfortunate.
