Speaking to a lad in 4 Yorks this weekend, he mentioned you now had to be class 1 before you can deploy??? So if he is correct infantry training is rather longer than I'd seen posted on here and you have to be trained on all weapon system. Which would imply any TA Signals soldier needs to be class 2 before they can be deployed (I'm not talking about the class 3-2 workbooks crap but the not yet implemented modular training system). [In Sigs this means they are trained - in theory - to the same level as a fresh out the factory recruit, I've not seen anything say they must be class 2 to deploy but expect it] Any other corps changed their training along these lines??
