Just wondering, bearing in mind how many posts are made during the day....

And the RAF...

So many TA online? I guess they must have more internet access during the day in their offices and not much work to do.

True, everyone has to have someone to look down on, that is why we have the OTC
and don't forget the UOTC has the ACF / CCF!

Oh dear I feel the fuse of another ACF vs UOTC powderkeg has been lit..... ahem.

Interesting that at present mostly used by serving TA and least used by exTA

I am sure EX REG will fight through to win the day :lol:

well if you dont have a poll including ACF instructors then they won't bother voting including me because what on top of the screen wont apply to me.

some of us would like to serve in the military but is unable to do so because of either a physical disability that wouldn't allow them to join or those with families and commitments, most of us are nothing like NIMN or other unsavoury peoples which you most certainly don't want in the army .........................

A poll is only as good as the questrions asked. In my case I am both ex-Reg and ex-TA so do I count twice or vote twice :?:

Personally I don't think it matters much whether there are more TA than Reg, more serving than ex or any combination. Life changes and certainly the army is different to that I joined nearly 30 years ago and that was different to the one my father joined 30 years before me.

What matters is the interest in the site, the quality (or not in the NAFFI forum) of the posts and the interaction between differing experiences.

What I would like to see is more of the people registered posting and more guests joining and posting. Circumstances change and some people will have more opportunity to post than others so the 'rank' structure does not necessarily denote interest in the site.

Having said all that I rerally enjoy the site and look forward to the 'words of wisdom' that ma-sonic, et al will no doubt append. :D

Erm could you try that again as I couldn't understand one iota of the unintelligible blether above, perhaps using the Queens English the next time might help a touch.

Vespa my good man

A gremlin appears to have turned your (no doubt excellent ) post into unintelligeable cack.

In particular, the bit where you made a point seems to have gone missing.

never mind bravo_bravo , sufficient to say the armed froces is made of different branches and specialist also branches of arms .

the inter service baiting will never go away, my point is i don't realy care if anybody wants to bait me or take the p!ss, ACF is a specialist area of the armed force in that they work with childen therefore must pass criminal checks and have a positive atittude, i don't know if you really look down on the ACF or not , a few squaddes have been through the ACF, i know of the usual ARABS v STABS v AAC v OTC v ARTILLERY v RLC

that won't change and its all getting quite boring

correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the ACF a youth organisation sponsored by the army and hence the only actual serving members are the Group B TA commissioned ACF Officers ?

quite a common misconception on both sides of the fence but worryingly some of the holders of C### etc numbers think they're serving members.

The only exception to this rule are those who are serving in the TA and the ACF or still have time left on the reserve list post demobbing.

Damn

I'm agreeing with Bashir...

By the way, the ACF etc are not baited, they are ignored.
And as for "Armed Force"......
