Off to the Unposted List

Dear All,

My time with the TA is nearly up, it's been a crazy ride from Pte Soldier in 2 WESSEX in 1989, via OCdt at EMUOTC, commission into 33 SIGNALS, op TELIC6 and transfer 103 RA(V).

I've had a lot of laughs, and more, from this website in general and this forum in particular.

The current review of the reserves sees the TA adrift of a credible mission statement, under resourced and no longer providing challenges and rewards to its Officer Corps.

I am afraid I do not see this review willing (from a regular perspective), able (from a TA perspective) or financed (from a Treasury perspective) to address the core issues which the organisation faces.

To those who carry the flame forward, I salute you all.



Is this the same as your "resigning as a MOD" posts?

Edit - Cancel my last, just noticed that your MOD banner has finally gone.

As for leaving, it comes to everyone at some stage or another. Enjoy spending your time on other things.

I trust you are not leaving ARRSE - after all you will just be moving from Tuesdays & weekends to no Tuesdays & weekends.
As a Very Wise Rifleman once said; there is never a good time to leave the TA, or a bad time; but there is a Right time...
To be fair he's not leaving: just going to UPL. If he was really, seriously, totally threaders with the whole thing he would probably resign his commission instead. So you may not have seen the last of him yet.

msr welcome to our happy unposted throng.
When were you at EMUOTC? Started with 3 WFR@Broadgate, Beeston in 88/89

Best of luck anyway, I've been a non attender for over a year now (guess this is the SNCO unposted list). Unable to give up arrse.
33 Signals?We must have met once!I would caution against being too pessimistic on the future of the Reserves. The signs at the centre are suggesting that whilst there is corporate reluctance, the reality of it ll is beginning to dawn on most. Once the momentum get's going, we could be back to something quite meaningful, quite soon.Keep your powder dry.FAB
