I know this is yet another blandford topic but i only hope it does not get blocked becaase this really needs to be seen. It has become apparent that the Commanding Officer wants to enforce a lights out policy at the glorious 11 signal regiment. The time that has been banded around is 2330 hours. I can confirm that yes this is true that he wants this enforced on all phase two trainees, phase three trainees and permanent staff with a view to obtaining permission should you want to stay up after that. Now I know there will be a lot of crap going on when this is announced formally and from what I am aware 3 squadron upgraders have already been told to stand by. I ask one question. Why is the CO trying to make people that have been in the Army 14 years turn there lights off at a set time. And nobody upon nobody can say "ah but It IS a training regiment after all" because that just will not stand. Exams, revision, projects etc will be affected for starters and secondly it is in breach of every single persons rights. Are they gonna go to a married persons house to check. Never mind the beret shaping enforcement officers.....it will be the lights off monitors next ladies and gents! Any valid replies are more than welcome.
