Straight from the powerpoint last night: 'Reasonable fulfilment by Defence of an offer of challenge, reward, and support that leads an individual to volunteer for Reserve Service, sustains them during their service and leads to the full commitment of the Reservist in meeting the mobilisation demands made of them' For once, I wrote it down. I welcome the informed view of the members of this great rumour service as to the wording of this as (from the mouth of the very clever but somewhat narrow civil servant present) it is to be the basis of the Reviews remaining work. I hesitate to point out that this confirms the worst fears of many in that it is entirely predicated on mobilisation to the apparent disregard of every other driving factor of Reserve service - mates, ethos, doing something different, Queen and Country, values, money, career, leadership, responsibility, improving people just for the sake of it, etc etc.... Sounds like a stick to me, not a carrot in sight. anyway - wdyt chaps?
