    Public Sector Investigation/Int Units

    Hi all, I hope everyone is good and well. I am just looking for some advice as per! Left the Army in early July and been working for Princes Trust since, in a team leader role, pay is only slightly less than my salary was and the job involves a lot of paperwork that can be done at home, so...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    Quick Sitrep on the FOI request. I got a reply from ELCAS that they themselves do not hold the information and so I need to direct the request to a relevant MOD dept (thought I had whoops). They couldn't help me with which department would be best to contact so I am going to dig about and resend...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    I'm not considering a career in CP mate I have had an interest in the Security industry for years but I'm hoping to work in alternative education or behaviour management eventually. I was a LCpl in the Household Cavalry and the Infantry no huge mess bills for me! I'm a reformed ned/chav from...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    I can read that it has come across as though a storeman has stolen a woman off me in the past! I have no gripe with storemen, sigs or any support element its a job that has to be done. My using them as a case is more to do with the reasons they have found themselves in that role often related to...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    GA thanks for your post I am interested to hear from all sides, and I understand what you are saying about the choice of TP being so important for ongoing support as well as training and when I say that the TPs are being unprofessional it is aimed more at the lower end of the market to which...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    Whilst I agree with you the route is definitely being pushed, I disagree that the MOD are trying to build a private military with the view to them doing the jobs of the Army. Whilst you're right that in the future there will be a further support from PMC's in conflict areas (it has been...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    Just done it though I'm unsure if the dates I asked for are specific enough? Dear Sir or Madam, Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I seek the following information about the provision of funding in relation to military resettlement into the Security Industry. 1. How many of the...

    Thanks PI I am going off in all sorts of directions at the moment, the Mrs doesn't know what to expect when she gets home from work these days!

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    It did occur to me that the course being pushed was in Glasgow which is local to our unit, and by coincidence the organization who are running it had an employee conducting a Level 2 NVQ in Providing Security Services for 1 Scots a couple of years ago. I only know that because he also did my...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    I am not stating it as a statistical fact but rather from my own experience of blokes who have signed off in the past 2 years within my unit. I'm not claiming every bloke is doing it and I know several who hold the same opinion as I do and went down a completely different path. The point I'm...

    British Army and their CP obsession!

    Hi all, I hope everyone in the UK is lovin the heat wave. It's been a few years since I've posted anything so thought I'd share a wee gripe I encountered recently. I've just left the Army after 8 years living the dream and I'll be honest when I had my resettlement interview and was asked what I...

    Wing T Sun any good?

    What are the main principles of your system which make it work for you over others? Did you have previous experience in a system before you settled on this one? Where are you living(my BB doesn't show me your location) if you're in the UK or elsewhere I can recommend a good Gracie Barra and...

    Wing T Sun any good?

    I think if you are going in for self defence, it does not necessarily mean the same as going in for a martial art. The former couldn't survive without the latter, and yet a lot of sd instructors can be quick to slag off the systems which went before. I think this cheapens the 'SD' industry as a...

    Wing T Sun any good?

    True mate a would rather be on my feet any day of the week. I also think the stats of fights going to the ground are completely false as well, I've lived in Glasgow all my life and have seen plenty of fights, and they rarely go the ground before they finish even after several bottles of Buckie...

    What Are You Reading?

    Blowing up Russia by Alexander Litvinenko and Yuri Felshtinsky. Bought it because I have a general interest in Russia after a wee trip there. It's a bit like reading a police statement back to yourself, too much detail in some events, and it is very one sided. On the plus point it seems like the...

    Wing T Sun any good?

    Glad you appreciate it! A lot of it is old school JJ but it certainly works, hence why only about 5% of the book is still taught and after one class the blokes have retained the information. I had my copy on my last tour and we thrashed it out in the FOB at least once a day, the female medic...

    Wing T Sun any good?

    Aye mate thats the idea like. I only really went into it to improve my groundfighting because when you're weighed down with a lot of kit and you're in a very urban environment it's quite easy to lose your footin and be on the deck amongst the civpop or even during a compound clearing, it's...
