1 Rifles Promotions Cpl - Sgt (What No Promotions)

#1
The last promotion board Cpl - Sgt, I see no promotions for 1 Rifles, two Battalions merge and receive other divisional members bet there are some happy soldiers there!

Poor quality soldiers or poorly written CRs?

I would think that London Calling has hit the nail on the head - the Rifles want a quick spread of former cap badges and this is an ideal way of doing it

A wah?

I would guess that given its new role they have more willing, and already in rank, volunteers than they need to fill the available posts in that battalion.

Its because there were alot more SNCO's than necessary due to 6 bns amalgamating into 5. I heard there was something in the region of 30/40 too many so this year there was only 20 promotions for the whole of the rifles. 5 bn only had 3 made up. Lot of disapointed people!
