; A lance jack who works in my section has just been told that he's on a short list to drive some 1 star - he never even applied for the job and it's not in his job spec (?) Obviously, I as a section comd don't want to lose a decent and hard working lance jack, but it got me thinking about the job of Handbaggers, in an environment where we're short manned as it is, is it still viable in the Army's interests to have Staff Car drivers? Are there any more cost and man effective methods? Didn't the Army invest hundreds of thousands of pounds into video link conferencing a few years back? Isn't it a career staller? At C.O level, why can't the C.O have a pool of drivers who alternate the duties on a weekly basis, therefore allowing most to carry on normal jogging? I raised the issue with 2 old and bold Sgts in my CoC, they told me that ALL Staff Car positions (even those for Infantry Officers) are going to the RLC, not sure I believe that one though.
