    Reserve Defence Forces vs PDF in matter of experience

    Hey MateCh, There is a huge difference between what the Permanent Defence Forces do and their training tempo when compared to the Reserves, the difference between them would be even more so that the difference between the British full-time forces and their TA. The RDF don't have access to...

    Buying into an established security company, good or bad idea?

    That's a good point protectasia re: immediate income compared to the initial slog of a start up. I'll look into it further but I'm not sure what questions would need answering other than the usual such as is the company fully legally compliant, and what are the financials like. Thanks for the reply

    Buying into an established security company, good or bad idea?

    Hello all, It has been a while since I've posted here, hope you're all keeping well. Now down to business, I personally know a couple of guys who post on here and I will try to touch base with them offline to see if they can offer any input but I also know this website harbours many an...

    Courses in the UK Reserve units based in NI

    Cheers for the reply. I'll call them but was hoping someone on this site might have some direct experience and be able to offer advice but the site seems to be very quiet these days.

    Courses in the UK Reserve units based in NI

    In regards to access to courses, do UK reservists have access to the same courses the regulars do? More specifically, from what I can see there are only two Reserve units based in NI, the RMP Reserve and Military Intelligence. Would these two units have access to courses that would be of a...

    I'm sure Aikido would be useful versus average Joe on the street who hasn't a clue but I always try to compare various martial arts against each other based on functionality versus someone who does know what they're doing. In my opinion, and I am always open to correction when faced with...

    Steven Seagal is a total fraud, I'd knock him out with a back hander. Aikido is about as effective in real fighting as Origami is so the fact you think practicing it gives you some kind of tough guy kudos proves that you are a clueless walter mitty. Most Polish guys are sound but you are a...

    6 x Positions for Security Guards in Cyprus

    €30,000 equates to roughly £21,387 or £9.70ph for a 42 hour week sterling. 20 year background check for someone late 20's early 30's, so right back to primary school? flights and expenses 're-embursted'? No thanks!

    Cambrian Patrol, is it tough?

    Having read this article Exercise Cambrian Patrol 2014 - British Army Website I was wondering if any of the veterans on this site have done it, if so was it tough, fun, or a soft exercise. I noticed only 5 teams gained a gold medal this year (roughly 4% of the teams who participated) I'm...

    ISIS kidnap UN soldiers

    As true as that may be it takes nothing away from the troops on the ground who risk their lives for others in conflicts that have nothing to do with them.

    ISIS kidnap UN soldiers

    The rules of engagement are different for each UN mission. The days of having to ask for permission to fire back are largely gone. When I was in Liberia it was classed as a peace enforcing mission rather than peace keeping. This meant that if we came under effective enemy fire we could return...

    ISIS kidnap UN soldiers

    (Title should read Al Nursa capture UN soldiers) My fingers began typing before I engaged the brain :-D It appears even the UN are not safe from attack from these animals in ISIS, Al Nusra or Al Queda. 47 UN peace keepers have been captured by Islamic militants in the Golan heights. The...

    Where TF did this ISIS shit come from?

    If I was to put my "conspiracy nut" head on I might think something along the lines of...... The world has already reached peak oil output, meaning every year there is less and less oil available. Oil being a finite resource is the most important resource available in the world, besides...

    Nazi Supporters in 2014

    This OP raises so many issues that I don't know where to start. To begin with, this Irish Roman Catholic guy is obviously an ignorant uneducated pleb. He claims all manner of legitimacy in regards to his Catholic beliefs yet clearly doesn't know that there is very little difference between the...
