Just seen a thread over at armynet forums. People are now being boarded earlier than they should be. SSgt - WO2 listings show quite a number of early boarders. Must be a shortfall in the WO2 manning. According to the REME promotion letter 2011-13 para 23 says that the top people must be given a chance to promote before more senior soldiers of the same trade if they are the best in their trade. Seems a fair one to me. How many times have we seen crusty useless tw*ts promoted just because they are more crusty? This does not just apply to the SSgt -WO2 board. It first applied to the WO2 - WO1 board in December and will continue until the end of 2013 for all promotion boards. What do you all think? I love a good debate! Ps. I am not one of those on that particular board. Although I`am a regular forum reader I have not posted in years and forgot my password etc etc. So post No1 from REMENOOB!
