B K is a fcuking good bloke. Just what the Corps needs as a SSM. And has a house in Mansfield too. Has the most impressive scars I've ever seen - by a country mile. Unless he gets caught humping COMARRCs dog,he'll go all the way,and rightly so.
There is a staffy at our place who has been thrased for the last two years. This guy has had his face associated with everything going. Whether its been 'Battle camps', 'JNCO's Cadre's', 'High profile regt'l events'. You name it, he's been in the front line. When he arrived here our particular dept was in rag order. He grabbed it by the scruff of the neck and has turned it around very much for the better. I know that in the last few years this chap has been the closest the Corps has been to achieving getting an instructor into a certain acadamy for the last 10 years! It just seems like such a shame (waste) to allow this individual to be over looked/left behind. I've seen certain SNCO's in the Corps ride on the back of the whole 'certain acadamy' thing who never had any intention of even attempting the course. The bloke i refer to has been the only 'credable' candidate i am aware of but now seems to be being punished while the 'also rans' in his peer group who have bluffed their cases are being rewarded with advancement! This is a terrible retention killer for other young soldiers and myself to see such a remarkable soldier go unrewarded for giving so much!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought it was an arrse rule, also i know one of these guys v well and i dont think he would take to kindly to his name being plastered all over a website. But if im wrong and we dont apply the no real names on hear i apologise and i will go and have a big cup of shut the fcuk up.
