Now that the White Paper has outlined the Government and Senior Military Leadership plans to raise standards within the Reserve, align the Reserve to Regular Units and standards, in order to close the capability gap I have 3 questions: 1. Is Senior Military Leadership (CGS) going to lead by example, and adopt a working week similar to that of the Reserves? If not, then why should Brigades, Training Establishments and Regular Units alter their working tempo to integrate Reserves? 2. Is the Higher Command and Staff College Course going to review their Reserve module to reflect Reserve capabilities (in uniform and in civi street), together with an appreciation of a Reserve working week (12 days) which reflects Monday to Friday (with a drill night), a two day weekend training package, then straight back to another week of work (a second drill night), and in back ground, physical training, preparation/admin/J7 for military training, and limited access to JPA/DII.? Knowing the capabilities of your resources, and how to integrate them to best effect is key! 3. Are the Trade Schools going to breakdown the regular courses into weekend and 16 day modules, to arrive at a single qualification for both Regular and Reserves?
