I think the regulars should have to pass PFTs to qualify for pension.


That would sort out the chaff from the weeds...

Rumour has it you now have to pass 2 pft's a year for Bounty.

Will this be the final straw for the 'enablers'?

I think so. :(
Should only be an issue to fat f*cks who cant get their head round having to display a bit of physical ability to justify drawing the pennies..

totally agree, but I think more TA would still be more worried about the PFT than the majority of Regs! :D

In my book the only way to do it is pass all your MATT's and don't piss about.

So how would this work for specialist units which don't have a parade night or a a PTI? Would they be forced into Grantham every six months or would they be able to get it ticked off at the local TAC?

I suspect no-one has thought this through.......

I hope it does happen - will boost the TA's reputation somewhat and may even go some way to getting rid of the lard arrse's. Bring it on.

I really, really hope so. The sooner the pie scoffing salad dodgers leave and stop drawing money under false pretenses, the better for the TA :D
Twiggy, I have corrected your post to reflect what I am sure you really meant to write.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not fussed.

It's just my unit has lots of 'the older generation'who i can envisage fekking orf.
Their timings are adjusted accordingly to suit, in that respect you are either biffed, or unfit....simple

Presumably these units do turn up to train at some time during the year?

Get up an hour earlier and get it cracked before your first fry up of the day!

I think the regulars who CAN'T pass a PFT should be shot in the face. I can leopard crawl round and still pass.

My unit has started a policy of fail your pft once, you get retest.
Fail it again you go on 3 month warning order with having to do remedial PT everyday, you have to pass the pft twice in this time.
Still fail to pass it go on commanding offciers and get a 3 month warning order.
Still fail to pass it then pack your bags and your gone.

I'm sure there must be other units who already have this policy.

With the recent rise in recruitment, we can apparently afford to be much more ruthless with the salad dodgers, as there are plenty of people willing to take their place and put the effort in.
