I have just got back to work and heard that any new commissions for PAMS are, and I stress "possibly", going to be SSC only (6 years) with no chance to progress to IRC unless they transfer to MSO (which the chances of that happening being bugger all! ). First, if this is true, are you people in MCM Div trying to kill off the PAMS in the Regular RAMC?? (my guess is yes!) And if so, why? Purely fiscal?? Think you can get the same cheaper, think again! The NHS now pays more than the military, well in my "area" of work anyway! Comments please!!! Even from you Venty!
