I'm not sure if I'm feeling particularly outraged for no reason or not, so am willing to take advice from those of you out there. On 9 Nov this year the vast majority of us will participate in some form of collective National act of remembrance. We know the time, we know the date, we do this privately and publicly to honour those we knew, and to honour those that went before. We remember all individuals who have donned a uniform and have fallen. Why then is there a separate act later that day purely for the TA element of the Corps taking place at the recently laid memorial? I'm confused. Surely this flies in the face of the One Army concept as it's not open to all, it's an exclusive group. This group isn't based on unit lines (we all recognise the need for separate unit acts of remembrance) it is instead based solely on being a member of the TA. Does the National act in the morning not incorporate the reservist soldier? I am annoyed at the fact that any work to unify at unit level, appears to be disrupted by the CofC, with something that so clearly excludes elements of the Corps. I wonder what the reaction to mandating only Regular attendance at Corps act would be. If there is a separate regular act at the Corps memorial then I will get back in my box and leave it to the CofC to assess the damage that these separate acts would cause. If there isnât, then how on Earth can this separate act be endorsed by the Corps family? This is not an opportunity to start either Regular or TA bashing, the question is asked seriously.
