CGS: Regular Reserve to be called up to augment Army

#1
Breaking on twitter - CGS has confirmed in Chatham House speech plan to call up Regular Reserves to augment army. No word on whether this mandatory or voluntary.

If after multiple years of 'Army 2020' the end result is that you are having to call up to Regular Army Reserve to fill holes in manpower, then that is a fairly damning indictment on what a failure Army 2020 has been.

I find this hard to believe. I've heard of reserve units desperate to get blokes deployed only to be told from the DAC, down through AHQ, Divs and Bdes that there is limited political and financial appetite - this is blokes who want to deploy, not ex-regulars on the reserve liability which would be a political disaster...?

Can't see it on CGS' feed. Got a link?

It's a pity, HRH was looking at a quiet three week honeymoon.

What a dire indictment of an awfully executed plan. My next post will be about CGS comments..

Not really a shock as this was a fairly major criticism in the Defence Committee Report earlier this year. An Action was recommended that the Army get a grip on keeping track of the Regular Reserve to make use of it.

I thought for one horrible moment that we'd started to announce important policies on twitter
Important policies are sounded out by the fireplaces off Pall Mall in club land, and even CH now. The drop in standards is the membership that facilitates such leaks.

What is the old name for Regular Reserve?
Edit. I'm not part of it, so happy government funded holiday
