They start their course as A2 sappers, having attempted a cadre and leave 2 years later as a SSgt? Is this right? I think not. Fine in a design cell drawing, writing reports and mincing to the mess at 1000 hrs for tea and toast, but on tour they control tasks which include bods. Zero qualifications in this department. Lack of experience and soldiering on the ground makes for poor line managers. Anyone have any other views?
