You're almost certianly right. But then again RGNs don't sit arround with only the box painting to tax them all day prior to the unit PT which is built into thier working day!
No most RGNs work stupid shifts propping up the NHS, doing the unsociable hours that thier civi colleagues don't want to do and then have to find the time and the motivation to run in thier own time.
Since joining the QAs (in 1997) I have not had the kit to do a CFT, the opportunity to fire a rifle and only in the last 18mths had any organised PT or chance to take part in unit/garrison/army sport. And adventure training is part of a fondly remembered RAMC past!
Another quality and predictable retort- (My trade is better than your trade!!!) I am sure the majority of CMTs are gainfully employed, plus are motivated enough to get and do some fizz off their own back.
Well I have had to have counselling as I had found out how badly I was letting my Corps down. Not only did I make the mistake of passing my BPFA recently but under the modified QA Body Mass Index I am severely underwieght!
Don't worry though. The Corps have been very understanding. I have been issued with a "fat suit" to improve my appearance and been put on remedial pie eating. I have been banned from any form of PT until such time as I wheeze while climbing stairs.
Hopefully I will soon feel like an accepted member of QA society.
