I have been hearing lots of disturbing rumours from Chilwell, about high numbers of people sighing off and low morale. Plus that all the STREs have been involved in section competitions with Captains and Majors acting as Section Commanders and WO1s acting as Section Sappers? Can anyone out there, seriously tell me that this is just a spurious rumour or has the technical roster lost its mind. Not only are we being subjected to unrealistic levels of overstretch, but our professional integrity is being challenged by having to fill our precious down time with exercises that have no relation to our actual operational commitment. Please dont get me wrong here, Im all for keeping up basic skills, but lets do it at the correct level and something that relates to a particular role. If youre in the know, I would appreciate some input.
