Has it ever occured to the people in charge of the upgraders at blandford camp that you were once in there position...although saying that since you are troop cadre then no you probably havnt. As far as I can tell, the fullscrews in charge think of themselves as being better than everyone else and more than likely have some sort of deficiency which they are reluctant to talk about. As for the higher ranks well the newly arrived one at least, did he ever think that it would be better for the upgraders to be treated with respect and dignity and to stop messing up there time at blandford....the incentive to stay as a technician or operator is at an all time low and will be even lower with this kind of treatment. I believe what a lot of people have said....stop treating the phase 2's with such cotton wool coated fingers....when they get to a unit they are a waste of oxygen because you lot dont know what they are expected to do.. We have to put up with a newly delivered SPROG being gobby and rude and frankly not worth his number on the ration returns. They need a bit more education and a little less mothering. If it were up to a lot of people then the voices of the upgraders would be heard more instead of being dismissed along with the food from the cookhouse. Dont worry upgraders.....your day will come. Maybe you can make more of an impact when you yourselves are seniors although it aint happened yet. Get your arrse in gear Blandford and stop bringing the Corps down with you.
