This is a serious question stemming from my reading of numerous threads over the past year or so that I have been with ARRSE. I left the Service in 1990 after serving 20 years or so, so I am very much out of touch with how things are done nowadays. The main bits of kit look more or less the same, MBTs, Small Arms etc, the humour, naturally, is as good as ever, but it seems to me there have been tremendous leaps forward in communication on the administrative side. For instance, DCI's and AGAIs, MML and other instructions and regulations were kept in the Orderly Room and had to be amended by hand by the orderly room clerks. I remember being issued with a new copy of "Staff Duties in the Field" for my studies which comprised of a pamphlet 1 inch thick and a stack of amendments 2 inches thick. Needless to say, I didn't complete the up-dating exercise. So my questions are: how much of this is now on line and directly accessible by all ranks, and has it made a big difference to the administration side of soldiering? A boring subject, I know, I am genuinely interested in hearing opinions. I hated it having to do it with a passion!
