Just a quick question while we're all fighting over different types of commission.....is there a legal entity known as the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve Training Branch? My commissioning scroll states that I was commissioned into the RAFVR....
If one was a regular officer in the RAF who was employed in the Education Branch, he\she wouldn't expect to write their post-nominal as RAF(E), would they? If a JEngO or SEngO, they wouldn't write as if they were commissioned into that particular branch, would they?
No. They'd write as Flt Lt\Sqn Ldr J Bloggs RAF.
They are commissioned into the RAF. We are commissioned into the RAFVR, not a particular branch within it, so why the VR(T) pins (as opposed to VR) and post-nominal?
Genuine thirst for knowledge here.
