Your main objective should be to achieve a work-life balance, which at times is easier said than done! The Commitment Each Reservist must undertake 15 days con...

Cheers Adam, that would make sense. I`m not sure about this new OSM, it seems that you`ll end up with an unlimited amount of medals all the same, but with different ribbons. The wheel is already starting to fall off with the Afgan medal, with and without clasp, and now I`m told its with or without a...

I wonder given the amount of tours were doing these days in Iraq, Afgan, etc that they introduce a medal similar to the ACSM, maybe the AOSM or AOTM, or is the ACSM medal still being issued in order to cover this?

That would seem to make sense, otherwise you`d have all the world and his dog aplying for a medal 10 to 15 years after leaving the forces. I assume that you must have to have some sort of regular commitment, in order to qualify. I think i`m right in saying that you can only been called up once every...

Wings

Cheers Guys, that is interesting. I assume then that the RAF don`t do P Company, just the jumps. So to that end do they jump in in order to fight? Haven`t heard about the wings moving to your chest before, but i have seen guys wearing different countries wings, i think the Canadian ones look the bes...

RAF POLICE

Hi John,

I think the simple answer is no. :cry: But it would be nice if we did.

The only bonus I have, if you can call it that, is that the army pay me what the police pay me, and I can continue with my police pension.

BJOW :P
