So as i understand it you can expect a new draft every 2 years (ish). With new young officers going to troop commands after CTC, and presumably a constant rotation of blokes within that troop due to the 2 year draft, how does this affect unit cohesion? I understand not all troop commanders are new YO's, but at troops across a unit what is the flow of lads in and out like? Surely a close knit troop who have known each other years would be a more effective fighting force than if members of the troop were constantly on the move? I understand this has to be balanced with career progression and the "corps of specialists" setup, but I can't envisage how a constant flow of Royals throughout the corps is any good for morale/unit cohesion. Going back to the YO's first troop command, I am attracted to the idea of leading a close knit group of lads for the draft, and am less enthused by the thought there may be upheavels every few months with personalities within the unit coming and going, not to mention the JNCO's. Am I facing up to the realities of what a YO may experience or have I got the wrong end of the stick?
