Well done to everyone that came off the LCpl/Cpl promotion board. Anyone who didn't, better luck next year and keep sweeping.
is it still all about regimental sport or have they started promoting on trade/military/leadership ability?

Mind, that'd set a dangerous precedent - might have to get some officers in with those attributes...

Fatty of the regiment eh? Couldn't pass a BFT?? Seen your type before - excellent at your job (supposedly) but can't deploy cos your a biff with no spine. Thanks for your input...........but go back to the butty wagon.

8 minute bft thanks. In boots, youngster.

Deployed rather a lot.

You one of those office politics types - not too hot at mil skills, average at trade, good at shmoozing the report writer, great at backstabbing?

Is there any need to be such a c0ck. Your one of the reasons why Signals get such a bad name in regards to bitching about each other. Instead of throwing insults people try working together and praise each other. Fun insults okay, but not direct insults.

(And before you say anything no1cares, I pass my BFT easily, I have done numerous op tours with medals to show for it, and I don't like insults being thrown at others for no reason but to be bitter and twisted)

I think his/her input about promotion being about regimental sport was rather pathetic. Anyone who could be a regi player for whatever sport and are good at their trades earn promotion over those who don't play sports.

To be fair anyone that does something that the second reporting officer can write about that marks them out from their peers is probably half way there to being promoted. If you think you're a good operator and do very little else then think ceiling of about Corporal, if you're lucky.

Good point from the last poster.

There's nowt wrong with using 'extra-curricular' activities in a tie break situation. My gripe (and it may have changed now) was with the det-dodgers who somehow made their reggy cross country/golf with the CO/organised a charity fun-run count for more than 2 back-to back dets to operational theatres with good reports. And that really did happen, a lot.

One guy I knew made sergeant with no medals in 6 years. A good but not exeptional character. Big on athletics.

Another bloke was acting up 2 ranks and got a confidential which said 'A' for performance in job but '3' under the promotability heading. How can that possibly make any sense whatever?

It may have been trade specific, (unless you were a tech :)) but I heard enough from other trades to think not.

Guys you all keep going on about people being good at their trade and not getting promoted. Out of the 21 tick boxes on your CR only 4 are trade specific. The other 17 are specific to soldiering skills like leadership and fitness. Maybe when people play sports/organise events they are showing the hierarchy of the regiment that they possess the other 17 skills required for promotion. You show me anyone who can show their fitness and leadership by fixing a trend on a workbench.
