And this problem has its roots in what?

Have your 'relevant people' shared an opinion with you?

Could it be somehow that our Army - much-diminished, still visibly diminshing, and twice defeated in very recent memory - has somehow lost its lustre as a career choice for the young, insightful, capable, articulate, adventurous and ambitious?

Well that is possibly the root cause of the issue.

The opportunities for soldiers and officers to do any soldiering at all are nill outside of SF, so now you have a huge cohort of officers attempting SF so they can try and get a real tour whilst they are junior enough to directly lead men.

Quality reporting....

"It can release 60 rounds of ammunition within a minute, which translates to a bullet a second."

:rofl:
PAM writers will also be surprised to hear it has a range of 3.5km.
 
Well the value in shares in the Rose Garden might go up:



Its seen better days

 
Its seen better days

That was a while ago, pulled in about 3 years ago and it was then a store/liquor joint and market place....
I wiped away a nostalgic tear
 
Its seen better days

So the only way is up for the shares?

A quality control report from a Kenyan prostitute:

“The British are very quick, so you can get another customer,” one Nanyuki sex worker said. “Local men take much longer, are harder to please and pay less.”

In every regiment you'll find young officers who, if they could do a corporal or a sergeant's job but with the pay, social prestige and future prospects of being an officer, would bite your hand off. Not all, but a significant number. It's not that they regret commissioning exactly, but that they thought there would be more doing in the job and less administering and managing and reporting, and they bang out at Captain.

There are a small but not insignificant number who get out at Capt or so and then apply to UKSF Reserve, specifically to serve in the ranks rather than as an officer, arguably to achieve that aim.

More on BBC 4 earlier, stating that Squaddies were high on cocaine and heroin (Heroin does not make you high)
Time to leave Kenya?
