Yet again, I am not allowed to do a training weekend, this time because the weather in Swynerton. I received three text messages over this. This is not an unusual occurance, wasn't allowed to go a weekend at Catterick because of heavy rain, even though a number of us turned up for the training.

So, the question is, why won't the heirarchy allow the personnel who want to train actually do training in, ahem, "uncomfortable" conditions?

I would say you have been unlucky. My unit cancelled training this weekend, and that is the first time i can remember that happening in 15 years.

Not unlucky, just a unit run by people who want their comfort more than they want trained personnel

Despite the accumulated field experience of a 12 year Boy Scout, it appears that someone in the upper echelons of military policy planning realises that you're probably a bit too shit to play in the snow.

Because you're a fat idle Greggs eating STAB. Well you may not be....yet. But by the sounds of it your CoC certainly are, therefore you'll become one eventually.

Sit at home and order a Pizza with extra sides.
I wonder how much outdoor training took place at the SofInf at Brecon today and scheduled for this weekend?

I remember going to Swynnerton in February it was very cold, we laid line through some water I didn't like it very much. My FFR got very dirty and I got water in my boots. It was odd as we had to drive on the wrong side of the road and it was very cold.

The answer is simple. Someone who doesn't like you has access to the armynet text thing and is chinning you off because they think you're a cock. If you turned up at the original location of the training weekend tomorrow at 0700 that'd ******* teach em.

So the regular head shed call off training for sensible reasons but somehow it's the TA's fault because they ain't man enough to go any way?

This board in general :-

Regulars - shut up and go away, there are loads of other boards crying out for your witty input.
TA - Post stuff more interesting and stop whinging.

Snow is falling in Nigg. Er, snow is falling in the Cromarty Firth. What I wouldn't give to be able to spend my weekend getting fucked about.

I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a weekend in Catterick when it's not raining.
