    Does the Feild Army actually have the time? It is between events and command tenures! Either the CO, Bde Cdr or the Divisional Cdr are changing and the entire system is in a state of flux! Good to hear that the present Chief will now have a three year tenure but what happens with the others who will turn over in 15 months or less? We have overlooked specialization for the 18 to 33 year lot of Colonels who now form the major bulge in the middle of the command stucture … they will move from one station to another adding to the confusion and not really understanding or contributing effectively. As for training we need the equipment, the space and the fuel, all of which will soon be in short supply!

      uncertain times and a future which looks brighter but we must downsize and become more professional in our approach and tech savvy now at least and never ever forget the rich traditions and history of ours, hopefully the top brass will learn to be happier if it allows atleast the pay scale of PMF and MES to non empanelled officers now that full colour service is a must for OROP and can we still afford so many lousy entry systems like technical entries of new types, SCOs, SLs, WOs etc..
