I hear what you are saying Cuddles. I don't really see the situation (certainly in my unit) as Old School versus the New Blood, it is as you have outlined more a failure of management in dealing with those who hide in corners behind little niches they have created for themselves. Many of the old and bold are the first to volunteer for tours despite the handbrake that seems to put on their TA career. However some of the old hands have managed to craft a tour proof environment that revolves around "keeping the home fires burning." It cannot be good for morale. Combat Stress - I found a thread on ARRSE from a while back regarding a group of guys camping out for a night on the embankment in London to raise money for homeless ex servicemen. It sounded like an excellent idea and I would like to do the same thing for Combat Stress, organise some sponsorship and raise money for soldiers who are struggling. Does anyone know who I should contact at Combat Stress? More importantly who would be up for it?
