Is it just me or are these exciting PDR folders a complete waste of time and money? All they do is duplicate the Platoon Book and the P-File. I know this because I have just spent the last few days filling in numerous folders as this is apparantly a 'Command Responsibility'. Perhaps I got confused but I thought they were meant to be 'Personal'? This sudden enthusiasm for these fricking things has apparantly eminated from some people upstairs who are of sufficient seniority that Bill Gates and the Pope take their dressing from them. I know that lots of people will send in delightful comments pointing out that career management is very important but there must be better ways than spending 35 sheets for every bod in the Army on some cardboard boxes that most people use for propping open doors. By the way, if anybody wants some free stationary, I am currently sitting in a room with some 200 folders / door proppers. Almost none have been used and most are still in their original wrapping!!! Hurry hurry hurry whilst stocks last!!!
