Convert all FTRS HC to FC ?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Leave it alone. I like life in Wilton

  2. Abolish it completely, 100% Full Commitment only

  1. Its fairly obvious that the Army is a tad stretched for man-power at the moment, trawls for hundreds of SO2/SO3 floating about, Garrison updating lists of deployable bodies etc.

    At the same time there are a fair number of people on FTRS Home Commitment. Can be mobilised but not authorised to respond to trawls etc. Why not do away with FTRS HC as a concept - its a wierd one anyway - and make all FTRS posts Full Commitment, like the Regulars the FTRS serve alongside ?

    If that is too difficult, why not offer an "upgrade" to all those currently serving and make any new FTRS post Full Commitment till things calm down a bit ?
  2. They would have to pay them the X factor... and that would never do.

    Cynical? Moi?
