Tri-Service Drill???

#1
This might be a huge WAH!, but I 've seen on a thread from another forum, someone talking about the introduction of Tri-service Drill?!? Is this correct, and is so, does anyone know when and in what format will this happen?Is this just another nail in the coffin of each service and part of the slippery slope towards a Canadian style "Armed Forces"? :thumbdown:

Arrgh- can you imagine?

As part of a smart as a carrot and well motivated Joint Force we could get:

Sense of history from the Royal Navy

Fighting spirit from the RM

Drill from the Army

Pay, allowances & working hours from the Crabs

Instead if the MoD/Bliar's bunch got involved we'd get:

Traditions from the Crabs

Drill from the Andrew

Pay & Allowances from the Army

Fighting spirit from the Islington LGB&T-G 5-a-day Real Nappy Immigrant Co-ordination Outreach Workers' Branch.

edited to add: Sorry, didn't knock before coming in...

Tri-service drill is the same drill used by the Royal. Was speaking to the DI at BRNC a few months ago and he was very definite about the introduction of it across all three services.

The reason he cited was that all the foot-stamping etc was causing untold joint damage and the Powers That Be still wanted soldiers that could look sharp and not require knee surgery by the time they're 35.

Go figure.

Guess that means running with heavey objects on one's back is soon to be dropped too then.....

Gotta say that would be further than we've gone. We still have seperate Naval drill, with foot sliding, etc. Different regiments have different takes on some movements. Ask someone to demonstrate a RCR halt someday. There are still different specifications for numbers of paces per minute and length of pace depending on the regiment.
As far as the Air Force goes, I guess their contribution to drill is surprising with what sort of headdress they are going to wear today. :winkrazz:

You'd have to give the LI and Gurkhas tranquilizers before going on parade. Either that or give the rest of us Red Bull instead of Port.

Loved taking mixed cap badge parades on courses and screaming at light jobs that this was heavy drill and that they stood at ease when I fcuking told them they could!

I used to enjoy making a mess of heavy drill when on mixed cap badge courses, its fun making them scream obscenities.

Light Div personnel are not required to take part in parades unless under the command of a Light Div Nco or officer and undertake Lt Div Drill. Bashed into us at Depot and Bn before going on external courses.
