DETAPO. 1. In my view conceptually flawed. 2. A step too far taking the regular system and without thought transposing it onto the TA. 3. The time commitment of an officer is higher than a soldier. Only enxperience of the TA will show an individual if he has the time and inclination to commit - hence the high drop out in the first year. 4. The experience in the south west is that everyone has dropped out from the selection weekend two years ago. 5. Are there any DETAPOs who have got through the system and are now serving or is it still jam tomorrow. BB accepted the post needed rewriting but the point still stands whether anyone has got through yet.
