I'm not sure if I am posting on the right forum but as there are a good few current and past Officers trolling these parts of the site, so I thought I might as well. I am just curious of the relationship between Junior Officers and NCOs, it seems to me that although NCOs must salute Junior Officer (is JO the appropriate acronym?) and call them sir it is pretty obvious that NCOs and probably most privates will know a hell of a lot more than a fresh JO straight out of RMAS. So am I correct to assume that the first years as a JO are really just more of a steep learning curve of the realities and practicalities of being a soldier and learning, most probably, the hard way how to lead men? On another note anybody attending MB on the 15th of July?
