Well I didn't go this year so don't know how many were there in total. I do know there were very few tradesmen from our unit (3 from a company ). They (tradesmen) of course were deployed in the field tactical while everyone else stayed in a crab camp. I'm sure the OC (to**er) learned a lot in his nice warm bed.
Think they managed an under-strength company from a Battalion.
If I read you right, the numbers were about 130 instead of the normal 200+. I believe your lot are supposed to be the WFI of 2 Bn. With numbers like this, doesn't bode well for the future does it?
Is it just because of poor leadership or something deeper?
