I cannot remember if it was something I heard or read but there was definatly a mention of class 4 craftys being bandied about a short while ago. Apparently due to the high figures of new crafties signing off, not long after getting to that quality training establishment in Bordon. The main reason? They dont like having to do more training straight after doing their short stint of basic training. So the idea is to farm these unqualified (yet fully trained soldiers) straight out to units. Probably into the new restructured Bn's. That an incentive to stay in? So if it's true, we can now look forward to completly useless buggers as apposed to the nearly useless ones we recieve now. They wont be a burden at all, the Bn manpower figures will look great, giving our lords and masters ideas. Ties in nicely with the 4 year posting, as it will take that long to gradually beat some mechanical knowledge into them. Has anyone else heard of this little gem, is it true, when is it due? Hopefully I'll have escaped before this idea becomes a reality.
