Bird Flu

#1
I have just been watching the news ref the bird flu and was wondering if any cap badges (not specific units) have been warned off for mob to help with possible containment (2,500 km sq area) in Scotland, clean up etc.

Sigs for Comms

Infantry for containment etc

Engers for digging burn pits etc

Med cover etc

Was just wondering if the TA was likely to get involved at all

And No I'm not a Hack :)

AGC will be even more undermanned. We have plenty of birds (well - a few chickens and lots of turkeys!)

Some rough old birds in the AGC alright. The growler who looks after our money is scarier than any crusty PSI.

*edited for incorrect use of 'are' - duh*

Who could have guessed it would be the bloody scottish to get us all infected.


But anyway, this will probably be handled by the police, its about time they earned their pay.

I'd be suprised if the jocks notice, their normally too drunk aren't they?

How are we going to contain birds?. :?


I'm having visions of Dastardly & Mutley, trying to catch the Pigeon. :lol:

Bird flu is spread by migratory aquatic based birds. Unless you are going to build a ten thousand foot wall all around scotland, you aint going to contain it. This isnt mad cows disease

Unless you're a chicken packer, or have f*cked a swan recently, you're unlikely to be affected. It's the same as MRSA; one mild scare sets off a nationwide panic... :evil:

Harrumph. There are no plans at present, according to DEFRA, to request assistance from the military. So there.

Well looks like another good chance gone begging to put the TA on the map and show the public that we are worth the tax payers money.

The TA could have got some good PR in the public domain with things like 7/7, the oil refinery place etc. I wonder if the public will ever stop thinking of us as a cross between Dads Army and a w/end drinking club.

Maybe the goverment just see the TA as a cross between Dads Army and a weekend drinking club, and thats why they don't use you for those things...
