So what's it to be????

Obviously some options could be political (NOT FOR THE TA/Army etc - as anyone who did that would need shooting) Can we keep this on topic please

Who the frack are you talking to? Don't you understand comment not opinion. If you think I would do a thing like that, then please feel free to play with the safety catch on your rifle. Your loss wouldn't be missed.

I find your post obsolutley disgusting (and that twat spaz). Your fracking stupid in the fracking head, more than stupid. A complete knob.

What about

No longer serving, don't get paid, but still attending to show respects for those who have given their all, past and present, along with about a dozen others.

Had I been serving, I am sure that I would speak for all my old unit in that they would unanimously attend in uniform without pay to show respects. I am sure that the TAC would be a start point and then a few beers in the bar.

Polar you claim to be a SNCO and are keen to point out, how you have been betrayed by the system, including references to you having been preached at regarding values and standards, however I fail to see any evidence in your posts of the qualities that one would expect of a SNCO. Instead you come across as self absorbed, stirring, whingeing cunt.
You start this topic suggesting that members of the TA may wish to hijack the event and then feign outrage when it is suggested that this is inappropriate behaviour and claim that you would never do such a thing!
I bet the lads and lasses have a real role model to look up to in you, don't they? I'm quite glad for anyone that would have to deal with you, that you haven't mobilised, you would be about as popular as a fart in a spacesuit, you cunt.

There is no question to be asked here.
Its not about pay or sodding MTD's - This whole stand-down thing is not even an issue regarding this.

I will be there, if I can go in uniform with my unit and parade then I will be honoured to do so. If for whatever reason we are told we can't parade with the other forces, then I shall attend in uniform and pay my respects that way.

I suspect that most TA units do not have 100% attendance at every Remembrance Sunday weekend, paid or not. I suspect many of those not attending in a military capacity, do not attend somewhere in a civilian capacity.

I certainly don't think the abuse polar is getting for this poll is justified. Has he even indicated whether or not he is attending yet?

For the record, I've already volunteered to do Remembrance Sunday weekend as C1. I will not condemn those who are not attending though.

I'll be there in Uniform if that's what we're doing, I don't mind not getting paid for that. Otherwise I'll just go to the one in my hometown instead in Civvies.

In fairness to Polar there have been some untermensche asking about a boycott of the Remembrance Parades, for point-scoring purposes.

Such people, obviously, should be birched.

I've already posted my views on this subject (which isn't anything like I've been accussed of).

I didn't want to imply an TA members would want to hijack the event but obviously I've mistakenly done so.

Certain options can be hijacked, maybe they aren't that obvious and by whom I've not stated.

I'll be part of the unpaid working party scrubbing the p1ss stains and graffiti off the local war memorial this weekend. After sweeping the broken bottles and picking up the used condoms we'll retire to the Legion and have a few pints. I'll also be firing off my annual letter of complaint to the Parish Council who decided to move the memorial round the back of the church some years ago so they could extend the fcuking car-park.

Rememberance weekend I'll be driving up to the Sqn at my own expense and parading with a slack handfull of others who don't put their daily rate before paying their respects. I choose to go there to stand next to the blokes I'm serving with and will be deploying with, so I've never expected to be paid. If I was I'd put it in the bloody Poppy tin.

Possibly a badly thought out poll rather than deliberately provocative but have a fcuking word with yourself.

As we have been stood down I will be going in suit and medals to My local parade which steps off about 300m from my front door and I will be donating the equivalent of a days pay to the RBL it will be nice to be where members of my family are commerated and not go to a parade 20 odd miles away and be mucked about by puzzle palace

nowt political about it
just the way I feel

This year will be my first Remembrance Parade as a member of the TA. I have attended many as a Civi, including the Cenotaph at Whitehall. If I was paid to turn up I would be deeply embarrassed.

For me it is an honour.
