US exchange visit

Not rubbing anyones nose in it ......Dev, we've been confirmed as going on this in September at a time yet to be confirmed.

I know for a fact that there are/were 50 places on the programme with only five going to Jockland, hmmm an unfair bias? not that I'm complaining as its five of us from the RTC.

But that means that there 45 other bods going some of which may be on here, is that the case? if so what have you heard, we've heard sod all apart froma breif at Chilwell that we're only sending 2 folk on and "get an armynet e-mail address"

Only me plus 1 cpl from my regt have a place (I should be off in July baring any extra hurdles put in my way). There are 7 others on the reserve list but I think they have all been before.

Like you, all I've heard is be at Chilwell on the 7th.

Unless there where >10% of the bids from Jockland and all of those bids where as valid as any other, this is just chip-on-shoulder stuff mate.

Why on earth would there be an anti-Jock bias?

Wasn't a chip, was thinking about it a bit later and reckoned it would all be proportional to the amount of TA personnel in Scotland and as you say the nominations.

My Troopie has expressed an interest in that assuming the RMR don't take up all four places.

We went there in 2001 and worked with 7 RPIMA (IIRC), a para/commando unit. R&R was in Montpellier if you survived the French wings course held beforehand!
