What can you do, i.e. your getting the crap jobs because your TA - it's nothing to do with your ability, training, colour, sex, etc.

and no I'm not talking about Cyprus. And yes I expect the answers to be ... crack on, etc

Crack on until you've proven your worth, or until someone else has dropped a bollock and gets them instead.

Don't really do anything about it, sulk for ages and mince about Bastison moaning that 'everything is shit' and telling everyone in ear shot how you 'can't wait to get back home' where as soon as you do, you sign off (Or whatever it is you STAB cnuts do to get out... you probably just don't turn up for weeks on end yet you still tell all your civvy mates how you're some steely eyed dealer of death who went toe to toe with Terry but in the end you weren't getting enough action so you left to go back to your trolley collecting job at Tesco). You volunteered to go, so ******* get on with it. Remember, good ******* blokes have been left off the ORBAT so you cnuts can play soldiers.

Ah but I said: they were on tour doing trolley collecting at Bastion.

Civvie street they'd manage the trolley collecting at tesco's.

Stop whinging like a schoolgirl bitch and crack on and do them.

You get my point. Don't moan about it, at least you're deploying. I've got good young fit soldiers itching to get out there, yet we've had to drop them off the ORBAT so we can take TA soldiers. TA soldiers that when they turn up you think 'How the **** are you ever in the Army?'. Makes no sense.

So you admit to discrimination and failing the service test?

You should carry out any legal order given to you by NCOs, WOs and Officers of the British Army.
Alternatively, bleat and whine and cry because you're being picked on because you're in the TAs.

Polar, any soldier new to a unit will generally be given tasks that their CoC believes them capable of and qualified to carry out. If the new soldier, stab or reg is a biff, physically or mentally they will most likely be treated as such. Liabilities are generally employed where they can do the least damage.

It's good to see the Duke is on form !

The job is to do what is needed in the theatre of operations. That includes being a sniper, clearing bombs, finding bombs, driving stores around, delivering post...... and some genuinely crappy things.

Are you the only one doing these "crappy" jobs ? Are all those doing the "crappy" jobs members of the TA ?

I am confident that the answer is no.

The attitude of your operational unit may seem to be unimpressive to you but the job is to do what is asked, or ordered, of you.

Get it done.

Did I say I was discriminating? I treat all my soldiers the ******* same whether black, white, tranny or STAB. I just don't like whining STAB cnuts moaning about getting shit jobs. We all get shit jobs ... just ******* get on with it.

Are you sure it is 'because you're TA' (editted for correct grammar) or is it because you may not be a 'known quantity' and there for have been given jobs that perhaps you don't think are 'not crap'?

Should you shine in your allotted tasks and gain credibility amongst your peers you may find more interesting jobs coming your way. No matter how well you ran the bar at your TAC you are still learning in most Regs eyes.

Most TA blokes I know rise to the level they are due as the tour progresses.

So what job have they given you? Do tell.

I got a pretty unglamorous job too. No face-to-face with the Taliban but then no IEDs either. So what did I do? Get on with it. It might have been unsexy but at least I was playing some small part in keeping other soldiers alive.

You should know that when you mobilise you take the job you're given and crack on. Excel at it and you might get something better half-way through. Vacancies come up for all sorts of reasons.

What a joke.

Shit jobs? In the Army? On tour? **** off! I'm not having that!

Get a grip. Why post about it and make TA blokes look shit? There's enough cnuts on here do that already.

Not sure.. I'm not in theatre unless Croydon is classed as a war zone :)
Basic fault finding always involves isolating the 'odd one out'.

Given how many TA blokes make it to 'a war zone'... maybe you're just a cnut?

Nothing personal.
