Reservists stand side-by-side with regulars in Helmand

It's actually quite interesting. Because the TA seem to bounce somewhat randomly between units/tours, they're potentially bringing experience to the battalion that would otherwise be missing.

Expect more of this sort of Non-story press release as the head shed try and cosy up to johnny STAB.

Reminds me a bit of Starship Troopers and "I'm doing my part"

I'm Doing My Part - YouTube

(Not knocking the lads out there, just the government spin machine that always manages to sound a but clunky)

It's not STAB any more, it changed to.... PRAT, PRETEND REGULAR ARMY TWAT

I thought it was decent article as well, and you're right, I knew guys on their second and third tours joining battalions who had yet to do one. I think the regular army should look at doing more of this, encourage regular soldiers with experience to volunteer to deploy with other battalions. It can be a sharp learning curve to a new-in-theatre infantryman, reg or TA.
