I, like many on the board an a volunteer within the ACF. I have just returned from a camp recce which was attended by the Volunteer heads of sheds (Coy OC's 2IC'd CSM's and Trg Maj) What became painfully apparent was the loathing the volunteer have for our County HQ and I wondered if this feeling is the same accross the board? Let me introduce a few of the CHQ Charaters - CEO - A drunk who has decreed to the remainder of the staff that Monday Mornings, Wednesday and Friday afternoos are non working time. Admin Officer - An SMI with no Admin or interpersonal skills. QM - Unwilling to store or hold any stores. Those he is forced to hold are for storeing , not for issuing. He also thinks HE runs the battalion CAA's - Nothing is too little work for these two. Need a uniform for a new cadet - No problem, the stores are open 1000 - 1015 daily. Delivery?!?!?! How dare you suggest that. TSA - Training? Why the hell do you want to do training? You write the EASP, I tell you its crap and cancel the training. Simple really. It was a real eye opener to see another county training on our recce. The county in question is of a similer size to ours and was holding a 2 and 3 star stesting board. 120 cadets, 40 to 50 Happy staff, AT Activities thrown in for good measure. So, what are your county HQ's Like?
