A "pal of mine" was called into his Boss's office (SO1) and told that his CR was due and that he wanted him to write a page on what he has done over the last year, achievements, courses etc and also any bad points. This, to me sounds like a person who has absolutely no interest in this soldiers career and basically has no idea what he has done for the last year. Personally, I would never ask a person who I was writing on to send this because I do believe in the old cliché of knowing your men better than their mothers. Thing is, how does this person object to this with possibly pissing of the Col and therefore possibly damaging his CR Grade? Has anybody else heard of this practice? Is it a new thing (self analysis)??
