Our unit recently received a letter from 51 Bde notifying us that they had decided all regular and NRPS WO's & SSgts were to do a CNO/CVO course and start doing brigade CNO/CVO duties. It is my personal belief (and our regular RSM & RQMS) that these duties should be a function of command (that is officers!) so I looked up TA Regs and it intimates that NRPS should not be doing this type of work. Apart from CNO/CVO not being on any of our NRPS TACOS, it just seems like a typical slopey shoulders from an SO2 with an aversion to doing duties. Anyone shed any light on whether this is to be done across the board or is 51 Bde wrong?
