I have brought up this thread out of pure disillusionment with the information provided by my current RCMO both to myself and to my peers group. The information provided by said RCMO was both unhelpful and inaccurate, proved when the RCMO told 3 individuals that their career was over and within 3 months they were promoted. When on the other side of the scale providing misleading information to both young gunners and JNCO's which would had no relevance to their future careers. Maybe I an cynical up here in the North, yes i will provide my location, I cannot understand how inaccurate an officer who has spent his main stay of his career in the same Regiment to younger soldiers attempting to progress. My personal experience proves that my RCMO runs his job on heresay and rumour instead of the career stucture provided by RAMCM Div and actually has done more harm than good by allowing good soldiers to leave whilst protecting weaker members of the Regiment from their old sub-units. I find it hard to grasp the relevance of the role they hold when the effectiveness of the regiment suffers as a whole due to the lack of motivation/morale of some soldiers, JNCO's, SNCO's because of bad advice unless you are within his old friend list. Maybe RCMO should be a post for outside the unit instead of inside in order to provide the concentration on the job they are currently employed in and not on providing top cover for their old friends by harming personal careers on heresay in some cases. More than lip service needs to be paid to this role, especially now in the current operational climate otherwise people will miss career courses and some instances of career fouling will raise its head, which is avoidable, in most cases. Rant out.
