Booties

#1
Many of you have seen or heard the news. Or is it a political move by the SG. WE HAVE 2 X BOOTNECKS COMMISSIONED INTO THE CORPS. So we will all be on pay as you dine in the galley then going on a run ashore into town. They obviously know the corps so well and will fit in so well with the lads and lasses!!!! NOT!!!

They must know the Corps or they wouldn't have bluffed the Board! Maybe they did their homework on our doctrine and future developments. But like you say, lets hope they know about the coal face- and we all can't do BPFA in 7 minutes!

I happen to be RAMC and have served the corps for 17 years and can actually remember the time when we were not full of fat lazy knackers,so i for one am glad there is a couple of real soldiers commissioning into the corps,perhaps they'll sort some of you lazy winging sods out,
Cheers.

Not making snap judgements about these two and no I wasn't on the board (surprisingly). I was just thinking aloud about loyalty to the corps, these two will have shrines to the RM and thats where their allegiences lie. Can anyone name a good officer from Outside the Corps? (Not the forum i now but just a throught for you all)

Nothing to do with loyalty to the corps,sounds to me like they have the tools for the job and yes i can name several good officers from outside the corps.Unless you know these men personally how do you know where their loyalties lie.Sour grapes maybe.

There's me thinking loyalty was a corner stone of military ethos- how things have changed.

Pity we can't name many from inside the Corps! Well not strictly true, the ones who are good are excellent. But..................

Hear Hear !

How do we know that these two RM's arent actually better than the four successful RAMC WO's ?

I know two of the RAMC WO's who were successful and one of them is an outstanding bloke who richly deserves his well earned commission. But I would never make the assumption that he is better than the two RM's. Only time will tell !

Still hoping to get him as your next OC then?
But of course, as I know him so well I know there are still a few things I could teach him.

You know just guide him in the right direction.

"remember the time when we were not full of fat lazy knackers"- Do you include yourself in that statement?

You say that you have done 17 years yet you say you remember the corps when it was not full of fat lazy knackers. I have been in the corps longer than that and it has always been full of those type of personel you describe. I too am glad that new personel are getting commisioned into the corps, new blood , chain of thought!!!
