Can someone tell me why the TA 100 parade is being held during the week, and not during a weekend (when 99% of TA are off thier normal jobs and able to parade) therefore meaning yet another day's holiday to be taken by the Army.
I may be lucky this year, and be able to get one 2 week holiday (non Army) and a long weekend. The rest of my leave will go on poxy things like this, organised by the fekkin Regs who want to go home and see the missus during the weekend so make us fek our lives up by organising crap like this on weekedays and then sending out a 3 line whip to man the cnuting things!!!
I will get off my soapbox now before I fall off!!!
TA 100 isn't just one parade, so I'm not entirely sure what the "it" is that you are referring to. The national TA pagent is on 21 June - a Saturday. And as I said above, in the South East the major events are at weekends.
Insted of blowing all this money on parades and other S**T why don't they produce a commerative medel for soldiers who have served over 3 years and have completed 3 years bounty. It would be much better than trying to get people to parade only to be booed by all the public.
One army, Regular and TA HMMM MY ARRSE
that web page is a total humiliation, and just shows how bloody disorganised everything is
