My bold. Were the blokes recommended or not ? If not then dry your eyes. If they were, it would seem that 'they' have a legitimate reason to be pissed off.peed_off_is said:Thanks for the replies guys, i have found a document which deals with this issue.
SOinC(A)/COS/30/9/12 - Communication Systems Engineer Implementation: Signaller Information System Engineers Promotion To Lance Corporal.
Of particular note is Annex B
I will quote a little:
"Throughout this process standard MS principles and procedures should apply to report writing in units, and will be applied to the boarding mechanism at the APC. As is current procedure with the SET, if a soldier is not of the quality to be promoted then the CoC should not recommend that idividual. It should be noted however, that the corps must establish parity across the new competence as soon as possible and a non-recommendation for promotion should be the exception rather than the rule"
Seems 16 Signal Regiment got it the wrong way around. Promoting an ISEngr was the exception and not promoting them was the rule.
