Army Recruitment

Army Recruitment

Seems the UK are struggling to get recruits or even reservists for the British Army. A serving reservist Army Captain blames TV & social media ie Facebook. He is saying the youth of today needs to get out more...........I agree but there's getting out more & there's getting out more in a far off land, undermanned, under armed and in a country that does not really want you there.

A local community leader stated exactly that: The youth of today have woken up, they are not interested in wars/conflicts that does not do us or them any good, wars that are not for mankind but for assets both above & below the ground.

Seems a bit desperate to blame the youth of the UK for dumb foreign policies.

Re: Army Recruitment

Not forgetting the fact that if you do join, either for the Police or Armed Forces after you have completed the tasks the authorities have asked you to do (normally with one hand tied behind your back) they will then hang you out to dry in the courts (whether immediately or many years later) when the "opposing" side lodges a complaint about the way you did your duty!

I entirely agree, sadly for us humans, not just the UK, beat the war drum and the young will come.

Re: Army Recruitment

Don`t blame them. It is one thing fighting for ones country but who wants to fight for political leaders who use you to boost their international stage image.

Re: Army Recruitment

Well the pay won't attract many 14.5k a year for new recruits less than minimum wage I suspect !

Re: Army Recruitment

...........and all so the likes of Cameron's dad can move vast sums overseas, to avoid the tax that pays for the soldiers who protect the country.

Re: Army Recruitment

Perhaps UK could start an equivalent of the French Foreign Legion: all the migrants who want to live in UK can do 10 years in the Services and get citizenship and all the trimmings when they get an honourable discharge. Kill two birds with one stone.

Nice thought but would our regulars want to serve with any of them & if they did I doubt very much if they would want them covering their backs..................Not to be trusted in my mind. We & the US have learned that the hard way with loss of life.
