RLC Officer MCM roadshow visited and said well done for being promoted but you've all going to stay at that rank for the rest of your careers as you have less than a 5% chance of ever being promoted again. There's loads of you and only 5 or 6 Regiments a year, to get on you have to command so basically you are all screwed.
Who wants to be a CO. And why. Well I've always thought, and this has been confirmed by the large number of infantry COs I deal with, that within a Regt/Batt you are the leadership focal point. You are there to lead and inspire the junior officers, give direction to your OCs so they nurture the Capts so they grow in the fertile soil of your man management.
Inspire and build trust with the WOs and SNCOs, the bedrock of your command and make your soldiers want to follow you. Sounds great.
However as a CO you can do lots of other stuff instead. And in this thread I want people to share those inspirational moments they have seen from their CO.
Charterhouse rules though chaps...what goes on in the mess stays in the mess...unless you touch up the barstaff and it makes the STUN newspaper. but when.........allegedly......
