Shortage of blokes up in Scotland?

Just got this email in, must be from one of the job sites my CV is registered on. I thought the regular army were cutting back on blokes anyway? :blank: Plus I'm a Yorkshire lad, I don't think I'd fit in with the jocks...

How very interesting. I got an email about some new McAfee software the other day. Would you like to read it?

However in response to the original question yes some of the Scottish regiments are undermanned and full battalions are getting the chop instead of then, politics are fun.

I actually wasn't fishing, I just thought I'd post it for discussion with all the talk of cutbacks while increasing TA numbers etc, sorry if it came across like that, I can be a mong at times!

The title got me all excited. I didn't realise it was a call to arms. I thought it was a call for ...well something else.
