Hi all

I have been a long time lurker on the site, reading a lot of the posts and must say this is a great place to shoot the perverbial shit!

I have yet to figure out what a walt is, but I am guessing its some tit who turns up on a camping trip in full CS 95's and webbing even though the closest he has been to the army is the time he got a shoeing from a para outside a kebab van one night.

Anyway, my point, I am in the RauxAF and just wondered what you thought of all the reserve forces, there has to be an ultimate butt of the joke so who is it?

The TA? Reserve SAS? Royal Naval Reserve? Regiment Reserve? Royal Auxilary Airforce?

Look forward to your responses

Hmmm, what's Regiment Reserve when it's at home?

There's a lot of regiments (well, not as many as there used to be, but still a few!).

I've no personal experience of the RNR, or RauxAF, so I'll 'reserve' judgement for now.

(My bold) I see what you did there.

Good to see such a positive first post from someone...

Sorry I meant the RauxAF Regiment.

Sorry, its was a bit daft for a first post, was just trying to picture where we stand in the whole military machine that is the british armed forces.

I'll get my coat.

I think if your looking for compliments about the RAF Regiment,particularly the aux(apart from our obvious advanced stagging on capabilities) you might be looking in th wrong place!

RAF slagging thread begins here....:)

Hi Bro, if you need an answer, try the figures 7630. Inevitably, with the exception of a few, the answer you ae looking for!

Royal Auxiliary Air Force Regiment, are fairly bad, as Ive never heard of them.
That would be the same organisation that walk Altcar (reserve forces mil-skills comp) almost every year. We even gub the RMR.

RNR get my vote, all the matlots hate them.

Do the OTC not count?

I'm attending an induction day with the RauxAF at BN on Jan20th (hope that's not an opsec issue). Any advice?

the worst has got to be the TA. did a few years in the infantry branch of this-more bulls### than I thought there would be.
In the RAuxAF now - lightyears better & being treated like a human being is a bonus too!

Well having worked with all 4 Reserves (And there are only 4 - RNR, RMR, TA, and RAuxAF) the truth is that the RAuxAF produce more complaints, whinges, and paperwork per head than any of the other three - by far!

This isn't biased, uneducated slagging - it's biased, but informed, slagging. They are a total pain.

Good to see they shadow thier parent arm then.

I don't know about the worst but i got out of the army in 92 and have not heard a word since. now that’s what I call a reserve service.

I must admit I was a sh1t soldier and no one would have wanted me back short handed or not.

Yes, you're right there the Long Term Reserve is pretty useless.

On the bright side you're only in it till you're 45!

Are the RAuxAF another reserve force that can earn lots of extra readys but are not made to deploy or do anything for their wedge :?
