For the love of God, give me a few apostrophes. Even one would be nice.

Thanks. Plenty of apostrophes in that PDF.

However, it's all about the CCRF, not the CRF (topic of the original question).

CRF is, quite plainly, chronic renal failure. So maybe it'll be a lecture about booze or summink.

I've read that article properly now.

It is entitled "MOUNTING OFFSHORE OPERATIONS USING THE RESERVE FORCES AND HOW IT IMPACTED ON HOMELAND DEFENCE AND SECURITY - THE UNITED KINGDOM EXPERIENCE." (shouting - author's own)

But that issue (impact of mobilisation on CCRF capability) is only actually addressed head-on in a footnote:

"According to Hansard (26th January 2004), it appears that 765 (10%) of the current members of the CCRF are mobilised
overseas or on active service in the UK. This is not deemed to be critical as the available national and regional manpower is well above requirement."
Really? What if the 10% come predominantly from the same area? In particular, and most relevantly to the paper's supposed topic, what effect did the London Regiment's absence have on London's ability to respond to a civil contingency?

Lots of stuff in the paper about increased mobilisation of the TA for "offshore" operations. But nothing on its impact on CCRF, other than the mere regurgitation of MoD answer quoted above.

Interesting link galgenberg.

Buffy Thompson, supposed to be on our side as a TA Brigadier, fails to mention overstretch or a sustainable level of commitment for the reserves.

First time I've heard of 'offshore' deployments though; I assume these are 6 month tours in Guernsey or Bermuda on TA pay without having to pay tax?
