A familiar topic, close to all our hearts (particularly the non-ACF people!) Some of you may remember I raised some concerns about the speculation that an ex-ACF RSMI could be appointed directly into a commission as a Captain. I highlighted an article on this issue which had been written in Army Cadet by a budding new-Captaincy candidate. Well, what do you know, the tail has been wagging the dog again in Blankshire ACF and he's got it. Promoted directly to Captain over all the long-serving well-qualified subs who can't be promoted because there are too many hooray Henry's clinging on for dear life in invented appointments. This topic riles my piss because I was one of the guinea pig generation worked hard and went up against the TA at TCB. A level playing field for all, as it should be. As much as we didn't like TCB we did it because it was the rules - we didn't expect the rules to bend over and accommodate us. I haven't seen a copy of the new ACF Manual (or Regs for the ACF I think it is now called) but I'd be interested to hear if the rules on commissioning have been relaxed. I don't think they have - I think Blankshire ACF are banking on the ignorance of everyone in the County. Vomit.
