Isn't it time the Corps found another avenue for LE officers? The RD heads can fill their boots with the Families/RCMO/QM route. The Supervisors can fill their boots fuller with all things Supervisory, TOT/TFC/What ever the wobbly heads call theirs, but there seems to be a growing number of talented WOs in our Corps who did not go supervisory at full screw, and didn't go to Brecon either. In my location alone I know of at least three WOs who have degrees, two of these have Masters. Because these guys didn't fancy making the YofS brews for three years, or ragging themselves on the Lichfield/Bassingbourn/Pirbright circuit they leave after 22 years, rather than face the prospect of stagging on as the Welfare Offr/RCMO. What about a third stream? Junior Staff Offrs or immediate conversions at aged 40 to DE? We lose more talent annually than most Corps can ever dream of having.
