Drill Night yesterday, me and 3 siggies of which one was traded. There were another 6 recruits, along with 2 seniors and an officer. It's often a similar saddening story at weekends. My reasoning for this the Regiment's policy of 'starting from scratch', i.e training soliders up from low level stuff iot be be fully prepared for camp. Problem is, we've got lots of traded/skilled soldiers who want to do their job on weekends, not just sit around with thumb up backside. The majority of us know what we are doing and how to do it. Only the newest siggy needs training. As a result, 35 Sigs is on it's arrse, with talk of squadrons being shut down. Any other TA units experienced difficult times? Anybody got any practical ideas on how to solve this problem?
