Just read a few post reports on Iraq and Afghanistan on provost portal. It's quite worrying because it seems that we have no real role and units have to be pressed about allowing RMP to accompany on patrol etc. One report stated of a heated argument about not allowing RMP to join the patrol. In my experience I have found similar problems on exercises. We weren't scaled into them, however we were there (that was also mentioned on a post ex report). This is not to knock anyone because I'm sure whatever we do, we apply 100% to it, however speaking with many colleagues about their ops experiences and this appears to be the general concencus. What's going on?
