Many here are openly quoting about how much the army now acknowledges the very slow (if at all) promotion process. Just before I left It was widely known about slow promotion (12-14 years to make Cpl in tank transporting). The army website actually recommends that soldiers now re-trade regularly to chase available promotion. Is there anywhere where articles published in the media, preferably online, have highlighted this lack of career now predominated in the army? As I find it an interesting bind the MOD now finds itself in regarding retention.
