Here is a question for you, do the TA give value for money to the Nation? No I am not a journo, just a dissallusioned, (spelling) soon to be Ex PSI.
Not sure I would class it as a 'Youth Organisation'!Yatesy said:then by ur answer i would have to say they have as much military and monitary value as any youth organisation. i find it hard to understand the mod spending so much money on training an such when like u say no one is forced to goanywhere surely one forced tour of duty in a three year service period would make more sence
and methinks you're talking boll0cks sunshine.El_Burno said:quarter of the Army is TA, i odnt think value comes into it. More of a necessity me thinks
and I think you just answered it yourself!twosup said:A My Bn must have spent millions of pounds over the last couple of years with only a couple of soldiers deploying on tours.
So my question stands, do the TA give value for money?
They give 200% more value now than they EVER did during the cold war! Mind you, nothing x 200 is still nothing, isn't it!twosup said:Here is a question for you, do the TA give value for money to the Nation? No I am not a journo, just a dissallusioned, (spelling) soon to be Ex PSI.
I guess that if we wanted/had to take the lion's share of the op tours the we would be the ARABs and you would be the STABS.E-Layer said:When you (the TA as a whole before you all start) start taking the lion's share of op tours and alleviating some of back-to-back fcuking tours that most of the regs units are on at the moment (while the remainder are on an 18-month turnaround) then come on here and talk about how fcuking necessary you are. Until then, bore off and carry on with your 9 to fcuking 5!
Assuming that you are replying to me:Goldfishfart said:You must be carefull not to tar everyone with the same brush!.....etc etc
Mate - if you are talking about 90-whatever squadron that went to Bosnia then please don't even go there. I take nothing away from the people who left family and job behind to go away for the tour but then again, I would not feel so bad leaving my family behind to go on a fcuking stag weekend to Butlins - which I would liken Bosnia to at the time!You said:Volunteers from the T.A. were needed for one particular deployment in 1998 when (rumour has it) some one at the M.O.D. said" you'll never get enough volunteers for that!" 40 odd blokes from the R.Y.....
