Separate arrse for regulars and TA? Been on this forum for a while now and it strikes me how much of a gap there is between the responses between the TA and the regulars. Is it about time we had a separate arrse for the two? I cant see many topics that are relevant to both the regular and part time soldier, for example pay, tours, training, recruiting, motivation, standards, and the like. I just cant see how the two go together. A part time soldier is exactly what it says on the can. Regulars have separate housing, pay, postings and promotion issues. If we are to move on to credible discussion that is of value then surely now is the time to have a separate forum. How can a TA soldier comment on LOA, quarters, education courses, postings, bullying, married unaccompanied tours, the NAAFI, the PRI, retention, pensions, ration cards, tax free cars, BFBS, SSVC, pay as you dine, Op Puma, Op Ajax, BFPO, POAR, FFR, Leave, MMA, Free flights, adventurous trg, The JRC, The Sgts mess, the Officers Mess, mess dress, Weekend duties, cancelled leave, medical downgrading, over promotion, under promotion, leave bans, block leave, Keen wind states, living in, living out, pads, pads brats, service schools, boarding schools, pet pass ports, German laws, petrol coupons, tax free goods, PVR, ROPs, extra duties, accused advisors, Res Pod, car passes, this list isnt endless but it does go on. The TA may have an opinion about these matters but at the end of the day it is not of any worth as they do not live by the same considerations as us. It is a complete nonsense and belittles this fantastic forum to hear views based on nil or little experience or even experience that can be taken or left at the drill hall door. This is not a snipe at the TA just a furrowed brow at some of the naivety that gets posted here. Any thoughts?
