:? Does anyone move cadets from one location to another by anything other than mini-bus?
 
#2
yes, some of them walk ;)
 
#3
Yes. I've found that LCV's work very well indeed, as in Leather Covered Vehicles. Have at times had a coach and driver provided by out local transport squadron of RLC, in fact using one of them later this week. Often though. numbers make use of a minibus nore economical, even if we need to use two of them.

If you were in my det, speaking in that way you would require some expert medical help, you sicko! If you are indeed a member of the ACF, best hope we don't cross paths.

Coach (Private Hire)

Two points.
1. I was hoping to find out if anyone still uses trucks. I didn't say as much because of those people who love to bait anything that they remotely consider to be the preserve of the TA and Regs.
2. I have a son in the cadets. I like a joke as much as the next but talking about children and male anatomy in the same sentence, is not in my opinion appropriate under any circumstances.

'Trucks' can be used, but it needs lots of paperwork and the approval of the commandant, plus a willing TA/Reg unit to get them off, so minibuses will be easier ;-)

At annual camp, administrators, Commandant and availability of 'trucks' in the same area, so is more likely to happen.

Hi,

We have 1 x Minibus per Company, great as it only has 12 seats.

We have been told that we are no longer entitled to use Green Fleet.

Our CEO has declared that no Cadet can travel in a 4 tonner unless it is on the Trg Area. Surely a 4 tonner is safer on the roads than the Training Area.

I do have Landrover on my FMT600 but am told I must requalify every 6 months.

If the TA were to want to lend us vehicles it has to go through 145 Brigade. So I think a combination of Coaches, Minibus and private cars is the only way forward.

Thanks very much for that. I was curious as I have LGV1 and a full PSV. Have recently had to sit the test for my FMT600 and I have been wondering what hoops I would need to jump through to drive the trucks if the opportunity arose.

Regards,

Bisley

My local detatchments have been seen being transported to Altcar Ranges on a number of vehicles ranging from sandyachts to space shuttles and scooters to submarines.

I think the detatchment commander has also ordered four two man jetpacks and sixteen 'Dancer' canoes to get them to annual camp.

What a bone question. What are you suggestion, melting them down and moving them in shopping trollies?
Thanks, very amusing: read the entire thread for the answer to your question. Love the badge, what reg is that?

a message pointing out that the poster is breaching the user policys to admin@arrse.co.uk is the a possible way to deal with such postings.

Yes i was in No 1 Stoke on Trent area, and we used to use 4 ton bedfords....but this was in the late 80's early 90's !

You again biscuits? You really are a neanderthal aren't you?

Use of TCVs on roads to transport troops is somewhat limited.
At Brecon, we were only allowed to travel via TCV from Brecon onto SENTA by wearing helmets (as if that would save you if a bedford rolled...). Even then, it was only a special exemption.
I think the limit for TCV travel is about 10km (?)

Well, reading this I have a question for you, then. I am attempting to become an ACF Instructor after several years in the TA, and as ex-RLC have Bedford 4t and 8t on my FMT600. If I join the ACF will I get to drive the Cadets around in these vehicles?

It's no skin off my nose either way, really, but I quite like driving the 8t, as long as it's not another 13hr convoy drive from Suffolk to Bicester at 40kph!

If they are already on your FMT600 then yes, until they expire. However, the ACF does not 'own'a green fleet so its down to scrounging them from the regs and TA for ACF work. Most counties can get hold of the trucks, not the drivers so you old man could be rocking horse s*it

So, good news for me! The ACF might want me just for rareity value ;-)

Will they let officers drive? I don't want to run before I can walk, but I do fancy a commission...
