SC 07 in the beginning

Well, that's my parent Sqn sending the recruits off this Saturday & giving them the kit list last night! so they have lots of time to get the stuff. Some of them have only 1 pair of boots FFS, the hand out we give out prior to w/e 3, which I gave the SRTT about 3 weeks ago, they still haven't got, so their in for a fun time in the field, the postal address hadn't been passed on to them, some were still asking about the driving phase, or STA.

Good man management skills displayed there boys, well done, nice investment in the future.

No doubt I'll be getting all their moans when I get there.

AND another thing.....where the Feck are all the instructors promised from other units?, looking at the main instruction there's an awful lot of spaces saying *insert unit name here.

Don't people want to practice their instructor skills or the stuff learnt at Brecon?

here's you chance to get some expierence(?)

rant over.....
I got my JIs for Ex Summer Leader today running in conjunction with SC07 I believe and on it they were screaming out to units to send any available instructors...doesn't bode well.
Guess they're just building on last years phenomenal success!

I also took in the platoon CTP for the complete SC, chances of the recruits getting them?
Indeed...when I did TAOC many moons before it ran like clockwork. We had a core group of instructors and all the kit we needed. Seems RTC are trying to do too much at the same time.
Not the RTC, 7Scots via brigade, we're only supplying the PRT & a few Instructors, we have had no input to the organisation, which is a good thing.
Well due to a few contacts, I got a programme, and it turns out I know more than my unit does.. as for kit.. well lets just say there could be a fair bit of scrounging on Friday night.

I did get two pairs of boots however :D
FF Box
As soon as you see The Big Highlander Cpl with the Scar..say to him"has anyone told you you look like Meat Loaf?".....he'll love that..not...tell him I was asking for him..he's a good bloke...
Tartan would that happen to be shrub by any chance!!!!!!

FFBox might try and fit two or three days on SC this year providing i get the ok!

Spoke to the bosses about it last night and they were a bit maybes aye maybes no!

I'm sure it will all fall into place and become a raving success or at least another sterling example of what not to do.
Clearly there is no need to train you for a commission as you have already done it all and will only be on SL07 to ensure that the DS do their job properly!!

I look forward to meeting you!

And as for you FFBox, get on with your work!!! :wink:

Not at all just pointing out with all the problems forecast you can't help but be a cynic in saying that I'm sure both SC and SL07 will be a success and does what it says on the tin.

That's alright for you, unless you're tipping up?
I will be there!! Going up on Saturday.

Brecon or an audience with you know who!! :p :p

At least if you do a course at Brecon then your OC cant whinge at you any more saying "FFBox, you are not qualified to teach recruits how to stuff grass into their helmet and crawl around" etc etc :wink:
I'm there to lend moral support to the OA&S on combat camping, the boss is very understanding when it comes to my aversion to Brecon, I don't need to do it, Recce Tactics/Commander was run by Land Warfare Warminster, that's my excuse, I was looking at the AA CCI (?) course touted here somewhere, until running & 800 link was mentioned!

Besides, I've got 'fingers' & Rac C's mate to keep me right!ish
