TA and 'The' Armed Forces Review

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Darthspud, Jul 5, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone got any ideas how this review affects the TA and other reserve forces? :?
     
  2. If the effects of previous "reviews" are anything to go by, less TA and those that are left voting with their feet.

    I've been informed that REME TA seem to be getting less turning up for annual camps, anyone counter this?

    Well I didn't go this year :D 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 8O ). 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.
     
  4. 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?
