Congratulations to Gazala Cadre TSC(A) (Malta Barracks)

#1
Just a quick note, well done everyone who passed out of Gazala Cadre this weekend just gone. The second cadre (apparently) where everyone who started the weekend passed.

Role on CMS(R)!

Well for me, I've got CMS(R) to do and then my unit who are still training have Signals 1&2 and Land Rover FAM on (in early January I think) so I get to do the first part of my trade training.

But not be able to spell the words to describe the activity :roll:

It might not be rocket science or incredibly taxing but I thought a little bit of positive in the midst of all this * doom and gloom wouldn't be a bad thing, now would it?
Pah, I laugh in the face of your spellchecker. :D

Fair cop though I've been on the smash since thursday and the rabbit at the controls in my head is slacking off again.

Er hows that possible? I have been led to believe there is no phase 2 training or trade training for the next 5 months.
I have already completed cms(r) but due to the current situation I will be unable to get traded.

In which case it seems that WhatAmIDoing doesnt know what he is doing or not as the case may be....

Our unit is putting the training on for us because they themselves can run it.
Your unit can run cms(r)?

CMS(R) is still being funded and run by the RTCs as before. (Assuming your unit is still open to do paperwork and kit issue! The course I'm on is somewhat smaller than usual...)

Phase 2 trade training is, in general, sacked - but there is still discussion (At a general officer level) to decide if "Operations" training includes UK Operations - so for the moment some RSigs training is still on, but it's still "wait, out" on that score.

Given the usual quality of your posts, I do wonder which Thursday that might be - a wet Thursday in August 1985 I suspect.

we were advised yesterday that UK Ops is not considered 'Operations' and therefore training will not be given. I am in 2(NC) brigade.
I was hoping to get traded and volunteer for Herrick for next year, but i guess thats not likely now.
I am seriously considering transferring to another unit such as Int Corp as I would have thought it likely that there phase 2 Trade training would continue?

To coin a phrase: Arse. Useful to know though, thanks.

I suspect there's a chance our unit might be able to put on BSS locally, I believe it's been done in the past. Depends if the Yeoman is willing to do it as C1 and how many people need to do it I guess - but I won't finish CMS(R) until mid-Feb at least, so I'm not going to be losing much sleep over it. I'm sure I'll be annoying the few SNCOs left quite enough with paperwork and kit requests as it is. :twisted:

Don't get your hopes up, the current state of play for us on the A3(V) is "wait, out". This also applies to the technical selection weekends without which you couldn't transfer anyway.

To those interested by WAID's comments earlier in the thread.

He is broadly correct, however some, not all phase 2 training will be carried out in this training year.

His (our) unit will effectively recommence training in February next year. I believe a robust case was made to the CoC for this as the unit is warned for operations late next year.
 
#18
Gazala wher patently jealous at the Ramilies bunch who, through superior DS skills, learned that when put in a circle, all 48 SUTs could sit on each others knees.
 
#19
On reflection, "gasping in admiration" is a more appropriate phrase.
And it was the same SUT that knackered it both times...
 
#20
Well done to the lot of you. Ignore the negative comments by some bitter and twisted posters.
You should be proud of what youve achieved regardless of what some idiots have posted.

All the best WAID.

Regards

Mali
