Hi, I've lurked on this forum for a bit now but full disclosure I went to the dark-side and went TA 2 years back, 6 rifles to be exact. I heard an interesting talk the other day about how UK SF being undermanned and the army being reduced and the reserves being increased that they would consider preparing reserves and letting them on full SF selection for SAS / SBS /SRR . This obviously got the younger lads in the unit super enthused. Bless, they all want to be the next man on the balcony. I personally couldn't see it working. I know their is an SF reserve element but they are Tier 2 units if you will, and they can attempt regular selection after a set period if they want. This is I understand because they train to work alongside them and would just be another progression. My query, has anyone on your side reg / RMR heard of such a thing? Don't get me wrong I'm very proud of the TA and we do the best we can with what we have but I think this might just be a bridge too far. I was *text deleted* post this in the jolly section, just to reflect the seriousness of it. I wouldn't post this on arse because I wouldnt expect anything too constructive from it ha. Any thoughts though?
