The first draft of the OP Telic debrief is now complete: All tourex reports have been seen & considered. The official word from the very top is it was a total pigs ear from a DMS perspective. All equipment lost/mislaid by a QM running in at around 2 million has now been written of & SIB have concluded their investigations, adding no blame will be proportioned to any one individual although it is commented that this SNCO was extremely gullible at times. The US complaint involving the incident when a NBC alert was sounded then the all clear given in which it is claimed 202 did not hear or receive information concerning the all clear & a Blackhawk helicopter landed with causalities requiring regular DMS personnel to attend as 202 effectively shut up shop & did not send out their ambulance is still under investigation. Serious questions have been asked of certain individuals i.e. a TA field hospital CO/SNO/RSM to find out what the hell do they think they were doing. The deployment of TA/reservists was deemed a success. However all field management skills were deemed appalling with environmental health almost condemning the facilities on more than 1 occasion, comments such as litter sweeps seemed to be a foreign word at this unit. Many options are being considered to improve the situation the most dramatic being the abolishment of standing TA units i.e. they do not deploy as a entire entity. The units are restructured in support of regular services to fill gaps & short falls in personnel. With specialised sections being devolved i.e. burns & trauma teams of no more than 20 or so. Plus general duties staff to be deployed in FTRS roles more frequently.
