Now all the youth of England are on fire,
And silken dalliance in the wardrobe lies:
Now thrive the Armourers, and honour's thought
Reigns solely in the breast of every man.

Well oldguard is right in 1 respect, there were great changes after 1990. I never understood the concept of Bn creation with all its top heavy connotations, maybe this was the planned mothball destination for Tiffies who clearly had a mobilisation role in the 80s. Certainly I am glad I never went back to Germany at that time when everything appeared to be shutting up shop. I left on options for change and it was probably the best decision I ever made since the one to join the Army in the first place. Going tiffy just happened to be something I did in the intervening period.
What is the general concept of being a fast tracked whizz kid now (as some tifs were at one time). Is it just a series of regurgitated courses to improve unit efficiency ie here is the book work to it? Or can a VM achieve WO1 status without it.You see! This is why birds and CID don't mix.
You give a bloke a gun and he thinks its a dream come true
You give a girl one and she knows it doesn't go with a dress.

Oldguard, you're missing the point and demeaning the current by calling them Admin Managers and the former by inferring that they didn't Admin manage. Both Admin and Engineering 'managed', it's just that the plusses and minuses are worldly different. I'm still very proud of a Corps that still continues to produce this standard of engineering leader to deliver on the battlefield what the Corps and the Army need and want.That you can read this post thank a teacher, that you read it in English, thank a soldier.
Good planners Taskorg, poor planners centralise.
The irony is that in those that fight for equality and justice around the world there are some that strive for inequality and injustice in their own ranks to further their agenda.

If Carlsberg made Fantasy league managers I would probably be the BEST MANAGER in the world.
