Digitisation Stage 1 - Thread

Now my name has got your unreserved attention, what does it mean?

The Unit thinks we are nothing more than a hindrance on them so lets collectively have our own thread and prove we are b&&&y trying - what for – nothing but let downs.  We as a team work very, very hard and try to make this work. And have sacrificed good careers to come here.  They “The Management” just think we are wingers. WE ARE NOT – We are professional people. All the other Corps have now realised this is not a hard subject. Hence why E2 at APC now controls the posts
I am sick to the gut with people on the "DS1 team" trying to cover other peoples F**k-ups.  WFB you’re a great guy (keep up the postings), as for 1of12 where for art thou.  As for the ASMs – good luck to them at least stressed Eric will make it better with Godfrey in control.  As for GP3_Bunny – get a life, you must be blinkered look around there are still some problems you naff head.

Well that should stir things now off to the Golf course as that is all you IS Ops think we do.  At least I play off Scratch


Whinging_DS1? Is that not part of the job spec? Along with golf skills, being ugly, being a failure in your own trade and membership of the Chelsea Pensioners?

No wukking fay Josey!!!!
Those individuals know who they are and they need a good slapping - It is called a team so lets be a team.  Only negative is the perceptions "the Management" has of us so lets put that right - WFB not seen you for ages where are U
As with all jobs, ours has its workers and shirkers! It is just a pity that the 'coal face' is spread around and no-one see's (or cares about) the hard work put in by the majority. WFB & N28 get a life or get together!

With you there, there is an awful amount of work that is done but it is very, very bl**dy disappointing that our OF 4 is of the mind that we do nothing but complain, maybe he does not realise how much we know of the invidious position he is in that we are quite responsive to outside comments.  Take that person over at JHQ the Digitisation man that has just assassinated us all by talking out of turn about us and stirring IT (for the record not one person can be fingered - HE twisted the facts and HE stirred it now WE ALL SUFFER _ ******r).  Now the CO probably thinks we are all Wanke**rs - WE ARE NOT and if somebody is so naive to think we are then we should all do a Harry Potter and return to our own Corps and return sooner rather than later.

Talking of which lets put the record straight the following Corps  and Regiments are part of D.S.1

Blues and Royal - OR 9
RA - OR 9
RE - OR 8
R Signals - OR 5 - OR 8

U have to ask WHY have none of these transferred !!!!

A large a mount of good people who I repeat put aside very, very good careers to become apart of the R Signals family and have supported it from the very onset only to be ridiculed is very off putting, please when you are looking at us as whingers put yourselves in our position first.

It would seem that you need a little positive thinking, The OF 4 you speak of has our very best interests at heart (I hope so) and realises that we contribute to the Regiment in many diverse ways.  As for those that have not rebadged, I can only say a minor negative - maybe they are not supported in some way and feel let down after putting their necks out, remember respect and loyalty is two ways and is earned just as much as expected. :-X  As for the comment about the Digitisation man I can only say I was Pi**ed with the things being said and wanted to smack his botty.  It has set the whole project back months on morale, now the top management need to do a top down approach to system mangement and boost morale, otherwise it could suffer :eek: IMHO


Well while you lot were crying because someone said something nasty to you, we were getting f&£*ed about. Want to swop jobs?
