    That's a huge relief! Thank you @Ninja_Stoker and @GreyWing for everything you do and everyone else who has contributed to the site, as well as pestering those in senior positions!

    In the 9 years that I have been associated with this forum I have yet to see another come up to the level of respect shown on here to everyone.

    That's unless you're a caviar troughing, granola munching, doorknob officer, associated with the RAF Regiment! ;););)

    This is the 3rd time this has happened since being on the forum. Everyone comes together in time of need.

    Spot on. We've come close to the edge several times previously.

    One thing that's become pretty plain to me is the fact the forum is more use to it's users if we have a loyalty to them as much as the recruiting effort. This applies equally to potential recruits as much as their families and partners before and during training.

    The impression I get is the Corps is very much supportive of this forum but equally needs to be 'hands off' in some respects to help ensure a holistic insight, not just the official recruiting mantra which is, by necessity, all shiny, sparkling and "everything is awesome".

    That is also probably the reason the Corps doesn't officially endorse this site through the AFCOs, but specifically asks those attending PRMC whether they used this forum.

    For example, the only time I've ever seen a private company tell it how it is, they imploded: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2014/aug/22/gerald-ratner-jewellery-total-crap-1992-archive

    Bottom line is we probably need to be a bit edgy and perhaps perceived as subversive to remain credible because it's the support from within the Corps family that kept us going.

    Possibly, he says, thinking out loud...we may also be equally as useful to the Corps Welfare organisation as the recruitment aspects.
