So I happened to type RAF Regt into the search out of interest and I appear to have opened a portal to a hate filled world of arguing and slagging. It seems the main topics are how poorly trained they are and the fact they big themselves up. Well, as inf, I've worked quite often around them on ops and courses and even with them in Iraq and Afghan. And I'm uniquely placed as my older bro is with them. I'm curious, people say they are not trained to inf standards, how exactly? Because I have met alot of their guys on courses I've been on at brecon and warminster. They have a platoon at sfsg, who I'm told, by non RAF members of that group, were the only ones to get the required tick in the box during live firing at the initial assessment by the senior officers. My brother happens to have done SCBC, PCBC, Light role close recce commanders course, sniper instructor at brecon and a few others. And before anyone doubts it, I am only telling you what I can gurantee. So where is the disparity? They seem to have exactly the same weapons, tactics, training, ethos and mentality as any inf regiment I've ever seen, they are just in a different role. One I don't want to do by the way so lets not get rid of them just yet.
