Quick question to all you 'tarts and vicars' types (no, really, I love you all - wouldn't go to war (or out of the country for that matter) without you!) .... A friend of mine is currently being mucked about by an RAMC SSgt who is (apparantly) a PSI in a TA Field Hospital (I wouldn't say which one). Despite this posting (which to my understand and experience is a none deployable one) he claims to have been deployed to Afghanistan. He is currently on mid-tour leave (or so he alleges) and has taken the opportunity to dump my friend, and then had the cheak to ask her if he could still... well, you can guess that bit... for the rest of his leave! Ok, fair one I hear some of you saying. Sure we have all done something similar/worse in our time.... But here's the crunch.... He has a wife and kids. What really got me suspisous was three things: a) I'm not sure we have any sizable RAMC precense in Afgahnistan at this time - surely any Infantry Coy would take its own medical support? And it would be very odd for a PSI to go. b) She's gone over to see him this evening, but not until after 9 'cause he's at TA. Now I know from experience that people on tour drop in on a drill night to say hello but to do the full nights training...? c) She claims he works loads.... definately doesn't sound like any PSI I've ever meet! So my question to you is this: a) Does the RAMC deploy PSI's while in post. b) Can a SSgt be a PSI in the RAMC (in my lovely corps they are all WO2s) c) Are there any sizable (say above intergral Coy medics) RAMC presence in Afghanistan and where? Many thanks!
