How to get recommended 4 Promotion in NI

#1
It seems there are certain things that you have to do to get recommended for promotion in Northern Ireland.

1.      Have sex with the Unit Hierarchy.
2.      Become an alcoholic and ensure you are still under the influence first thing in the morning.
3.      Do not be prettier than the NCO above you, especially if she has no managerial skill.
4.      Do not volunteer for unit committees or represent the Unit in sporting activities.
5.      Do not be physically fit
6.      Attempt to fail all fitness tests.

Worked for me (apart from the sex with the heirarchy-she was just a little too scary and hairy)

Its a standard pratice across the whole of the Bde.

Its military law, good looking female soliders are promoted at an acclerated rate, the rate of promotion is directly linked, to their ablillity to shag the management.

In this new age of sexual liberation perhaps the boys should get in the act........

I'm afraid you are not going to get much sympathy from this dogmatic, inflexible and over-promoted individual.

suggest after you have read this, you try and re-post on the Special Projects Language Intelligence Team Rumour Service:  www.splitrse.com

In February 2000 the Chief of the General staff wrote:

For their part, sub-ordinates must be faithful to their leaders, their team, and their duty. Such loyalty is expected, but it must also be earned through commitment, self-sacrifice, courage, professionalism, decency and integrity. Loyalty to the Army requires all ranks to foster and adhere to these qualities at all times, off duty as well as on duty.  
Further details can be found at

This topic was hammered a bit in the NAFFI bar before christmas.
First  Loyalty is a two way street.  If its that obvious that a Boss and a subordinate are involved in Ugandan negotiations, then someone ought to have a quiet word in both their ears.  Better to do this early on, before they get caught together in the back seat of the Astra cinema, or estate, with the lights out!

This can frequently be a job for two people, one from each end of the chain of command.  By running this strategy as a team effort, you make it plain that there are suspicions, but give them both an opportunity to withdraw, save the hostages and possibly a marriage as well.  ( we are all short of people, why not try and save a few, instead of throwing them to G1?)

If you have posted this in frustration, because you have had no joy from your line manager, then speak to someone in another  unit.  There are certainly a number of people out there who have had to deal with his sort of issue before.  They may be prepared to advise...

Ifyou  are the person who should have had a quiet word with the boss, and have not got round to it,  then please have another read of ADP 5.  Loyalty is important, cap badge loyalty is even more so.

Second  Not all of us are endowed with mechanical and spatial awareness that makes high speed navigation and TOETS / APWT a walk in the park.

we all have to be able to use every tool in the box.

Equally, not all of us Alpha males are able to charm the birds from the trees, and get all the IRs sorted on the first meet.  Or defuse, not inflame, that nasty late night confrontation in the Euro bar.

If you have been taking the piss out of the other sex over this, then perhaps it's just payback time.

Does there need to be an SM&D module on this again?
I thought we covered all the ground in the bar?

Put your mind to this and any problem can be solved.  You may have to manage up, down and across the chain of command, but there is another network here that can help.....

That's because they keep letting the little f#ckers out in to the daylight. Get them all back in to the windowless buildings; they'll soon shrivel back to black in the special UV-free environment.

Hmmmmmmmm...

It shouldn't degenerate into a slagging match, but how on earth did you get into the Royal Corps in the first place with spelling and grammar like that. Are you on the RP staff or something?

What's the reason for you wanting to leave?
Is there another job in the Signals you'd rather do and, more importantly, are you up to it?
What is it about the Int Corps you prefer? I will fully understand if your reply that there's lots of nice looking girls, because that's my recollection as well.

Apologies to Green Slime for coming on to your board, I couldn't resist.

No I'm not r.p staff I was just typing carelessly, hope that clears it up for you. Reason for leaving is that I'm bored to death. Don't think theres another sigs job I'd rather do. As for being up to it, do you know me well enough to question my capabilities? The int corps seems more interesting quite simply, yes fit birds is a bonus.

OK, I'll play along.

If you're bored in the Royal Corps do you really think you're going to be excited in the Int Corps?

Do you know what the Int Corps do?

You're correct, I don't know what trade you are in the Signals or what you're potential is, I'm actually trying to help you. Have you asked yourself all of the questions that I have. Don't get all touchy when I ask if you're up to the job, there are jobs that you might not be up to motovationally rather than academically. You do state that you are bored in the Signals.

As GladItsAllOver has said, I have experience of working with the Int Corps and at least two other postings than when I worked with him so I think I know what I'm banging on about.

You shouldn't really come on in the middle of a thread where these folks are trying to work out if it's worth shagging each other in NI in order to get promoted and proclaim that my beloved Corps is boring.

Of course you could tell me to go away and leave you alone and I'd be delighted.

I got acting rank out there because i WANTED to shag around.. does that count as evidence? :| :roll:
 
#19
Ok fair enough thanks for trying to help. I don't know if excited is the word I would use but I think it would be more interesting certainly. I have an idea what int corps do, not as much as you do but an idea none the less. I have been in "The Royal Corps" for a few years and know ever trade there is and to be honest they seem a bit boring.

The bit about being totally w--k at the job certainly rings a bell for NI, reminds me of the guy who went out doing "armed cover" and his weaponry was noticed sitting on his desk, he got sacked but instantly promoted!! It is easier to promote and get rid then it's someone else's problem!
