LE commisioning board.

#1
I've just seen this years commisioning list. OH MY GOD!!!!!!! There is hope for us all, a few good men on there, however I can only presume they were struggling to fill slots this year as some worms ( not recce mechs) slipped through the net. :evil: Well done those who got through who deserved it.

Don't Know sorry I used the term "worm" to identify that percentage of slimey riggley ass kissers that always get through. No reference made to our recce mechs.
 
#4
Yep, there is a Rec Mech on the list. The bloke with the cheesy sunglasses who had an article in the crafty either last month or the month before. Well happy he got it. He's a top bloke and i know he will do a very good job on the dark side.

Personnally ididn't make it throught the paper filter. On looking at the two(paper filter) lists I knew far more people on the "unsuccessful" list than on the list of those going to the main board. Maybe I'm keping the wrong company? I haven't seen the final list yet. Monday morning beckons...

Well is this the best way to select our Future Officers of the Corp??? 3 interviews and your last CR. You could have been a _ _ _ K _ _ for the past 20 years and slip through the net. You only have to look at the new Tiffy Board System. The more _ _ _ _ you shovel in the more _ _ _ _ you get out. What ever happened to the Pot Tiffy's being put forward by the EME and ASM, At least then we had a filter.

I noticed there was a strong slant towards the ASMs in this years list. That's a good sign. Personally I feel the best WO2s we have to offer should be overlooked for commissioning and given the chance to shine as ASMs (time permitting). We as a Corps need the strongest WOs at the coalface... no disrespect meant, but LE Officers don't have the clout that an ASM appointment has (barring those few in EME posts).

Agree - a soldier joins and aims for the heights of WO1. At least he does until someone hijacks his ambitions and persuades him instead that SSC(LE) is a good idea for some spurious reason. To be honest, the Corps should restrict applications to just WO1.
 
#13
Sometimes I feel there is an underlying movement within the Corps to discredit the Tiffy route. Let's face it (without turning this to a Tiff/Artisan thread), everybody has the opportunity to attempt the Tiff route. Those pax that don't go that route should accept that it was their decision. Those that didn't make the mark should accept that THEY didn't make it and the Corps is not responsible. Fair enough, there are now a number of extra WO2 slots available for all.... that doesn't and SHOULDN'T mean that parity should be provided for all regarding promotion to ASM and (back to the thread) selection for SSC(LE). At the end of the day, not all Artisans are good at what they do (an opinion I feel is rife within the Corps) and don't have a God given right to advance. (That should get the debate going!!)

PS I'm not a Tiffy

As the Future Head of our Corp i think we need a total re-think on Commissioning, Tiffy selection and a whole host of other things. When i get there i will change things
Well done that man!

I DO hope you're not a Class II LCpl, we could have some time to wait! 8O

Thats not restricting it to ASM's thats restricting it to Tiffy's as WO2 is ya ceiling if you dont go down that route!!!!(Tiffy Route)
Unlucky!!
It does seem strange that Dark Side has gone/is going (if i read correctly) SSC/LE without first going tiffy. There cant be too many cases for this in our Corps! Maybe he needs a pat on the back? Or slapped for being an ass kisser?

Interestingly enough. Its supprising how many of the Aviation engineering fraternity have decided to jump ship to the AAC side rather than stay as an LE in the REME
 
#18
Far too many mincing Tech spankers being commissioned anyway. They have not got a clue about being leaders without looking in a book for answers. The wasters i have met on courses were all oxygen thieves with far to high an opinion of themselves. Good ridance and bugger off to the AAC.

Dark_Side_2 we are in a Corps (note the s on the end). Obviously not a tiffy. tut tut.

Congrats to the baby faced ASM, he's got about a 100 medals. He served all over as a Tom (obviously)
Was ASM of a Airborne (Air Asslt) Regt, and his last job was with the lot at Windsor.
Outstanding bloke, and IMHO will make a fine LE.
All the best P*** mate

A little short sighted my freind..Remember, they have done exactly the same management modules and covered as much QSM, IIP, H & S etc as the remainder of the tiffy community. There is also of course the fact that the Aviation tiffy could easily come into your workshop and do the same job as one of your VM tiffys, but a VM tiffy could not go the other way.....
