How about this for a stroke of master planning and number crunching!! New plan is to mobilise TA once in a 5 year period, great it will probably be once in 3 as before, but that is another story. Why does the Reg Army not counter mobilise the sick, lame and lazy that are causing some of the issues with the numbers game. They could be mobilsed to civi employ to back fill the TA soldier's civi job as most of our guys are " just Driver's" as I have read. So we could have 1 reg counter mobilised for every 3 TA soldiers, now that does seem fair. We could also counter the lack of numbers and the problems caused at Sqn level by posting those who cant be mobilised due to this, that or the other and have to stay in the UK to TA Sqn's. Who else thinks this is utter genius??!! I know my Star is in the post for this baby!!
