RFPS brings pension entitlements (pro-rata) to both PTVR and FTRS personnel. Definitely not any relevance to mainstream CFAVs, nor is bounty an aspect. Only RFPS dimension might be for any new- world former RAFR(CC) that are now commissioned in the VRT.
Oh yes. That is certainly the case for members of the deployable reserve forces of the Crown ( I suppose we'd better not refer to them as 'active reserves' in this thread, as it will just cause confusion.
RAFFT was upped to 6 monthly, and female pressups converted to standard. Multi-standard (particularly BFT) was/is Aux Regt only, but may now also include certain other core 'FP' personnel, for as long as that continues
Again, multi-system would tend to be Aux Regt (eg also LSW, PPK and ords). Most personnel (ie ORs and JOs) need to pass full WHTs including tested application of fire on the range/dismounted SA trainer with the L85/IW, and SOs are meant to qual on the SLP (I think they can elect to use the L85?). Marksmanship is welcome, but not mandatory .
Actually now 16 days Annual Continuous Training, which confusingly can now be done (with agreement, and only for certain branches/trades) as two seperate segments of training...not back in my day!
This is not totally the case. Nationally-recruiting squadrons do not mandate the 'one night a week' requirement, nor do they apply the 50mile radius HTD. And for MTDs, the absolute minimum for maintaining eligibililty a CO's Certificate of Efficiency is 12 days (weekends or otherwise), though that would be extremely unusual. Some can be recorded as quarter-days from the 'one night per week', aggregated. There are also certain compulsory parades (AFI/RAFFT/Meds/appraisals/leg briefings)
See my above, believe it's still an APWT.
Someone that's still a serving PTVR, such as tango_lima, may be able to adjust some elements of the above comments, but I'm confident it's close to still being 90% + right.
But back to the OP....
It is an interesting proposal that is difficult to entirely discount, or to apply, in equal measure.
Consider a few parallels. ACF/CCF(Army) Officers are (currently) members of the TA. Do they, or other uniformed Army CFAVs, undertake formal fitness testing? I'm predicting a negative answer. Even MPGS don't do fitness test, for them it's BMI only.
The comments re US CAP uniformed personnel being forbidden from wearing Air Force pattern uniform if they breach the weight/build guidlines is one serious route to follow.
And what 'letter' is being referred to?? Are we all to 'fit the fit-curve'? If so, bring it on...but only if it does not result in volunteers being lost, and/or Cadets suffering.
