    The TA are a bunch of highly motivated, professional individuals, with the same skills and abilities as their fulltime counterparts.

  3. It's certainly a response to the "no scrim and sniper tape on the helmet" issue.

  7. Are 3 & 5 MI having to shout 'bang' now on exercises due to a lack of training ammunition?
     

  8. Shout bang on exercises? We have to mime map marking on imaginary talc.

  12. We can provide map marking simulation exercises in VBS2, with realistic Lumnocolour and Chinagraph pencil options available.


    MG Pln? Harrumph!!

    In my day the whole Int Pln had Roadsters not GPMG , apart from one miscreant who tried to sneak in with a GT*


    * The alloys gave it away as a mean V8 wolf in sheep's clothing
     
  13. You might smirk, but I have 300 blokes from the thickest tree in the forest* currently trying to write sans ruler.

  14. Sub - To be fair it's not that bad and the permanent staff do a marvellous job (before the SPSI issues a fatwah against all visually impaired monarchs). Being Larndan it's all about the Superbikes, one of my section did attempt to turn up to a drill night on a MOTO GP race replica but in honour of Marco Simoncelli we let him off with a stern talking to.

    Bravo - why don't you get your boys to teach us how to be trees and we'll teach them how to write?
