If they were trying to recruit people that night it wasn't the people attending, most were 35+. However I must admit I felt very envious of those in their DPMs. There are still a fair few things that put me off joining though thats all.
Army Presentation Team is not primarily a recruiting team. They are supposed to inform the "Movers and Shakers" in the country as to what the Army is up to and how good our soldiers are (as possible employers of ex military types this is quite important to the aforementioned "Movers and Shakers"). In essence due to our general presence in the community being rather scant (except in Catterick, Colchester and Salisbury), the APT keeps the Army in the public eye.
Agreed, the APT do a good job from a KAPE viewpoint, epecially with 'important people', but why do they have to wear CS95? Bloody DPM jim-jams are everywhere as it is, and it strikes me that if there is an occasion for 'dressing up' properly in SD than the APT is it.
