CALLING OTC's Dear Wingletang, Many apologies if you were trying to end the thread, I've done something to the combined TV and typewriter and cannot currently start another thread (adblock plus? I thought it was some sort of muscle building supplement!!). THE OTC BIT Nitty gritty time. Okay, let's (for logistical purposes) draw a line at The Wash, and exclude Wales (nothing personal). Every OTC South and East (OK Exeter you're in), of the lines are places that OTC's where PO's or 2Lt's could 'reasonably' be expected to travel from for Ex's we will do over the next 8 months (unless during vacations in which case Edinburgh/Aberystwyth you're in). I want 2 x 2Lt's, and the Unit approx 6 (to join over the next 2 years - I am sure we could overbear a bit if needed). So, I will provide opportunities to put the 'theoretical' trg into practice, a backdrop of Ops experienced people to give feedback. Professional scenarios, coaching and debriefs are included. The Unit can provide very interesting normal training and various specialisations. We will provide the above, all that is wanted in return are people who will return South on completing degrees, even if they are NOT in AOR - let's get the idea going. Any OTC that feels this could be of use to their charges, let's do it. Dates and details by PM. So if I recruit 2 out of 24, I still have 2 (eventually), and you have 22 or 24 who receive more training, and perhaps more join other units. One Army! Preferred numbers (IOT benefit them) are up to 4 max per Ex. Other possibilities/training are available by negotiation.
