    Deconstructing "Progressive " thought

    British Military Current Events

    They may be referring to the Specialist Reserve Officers for units like this: http://www.army.mod.uk/structure/39492.aspx They may be given rank but from what I understand they don't command troops at all.

    Recce Course

    I echo the above. I wouldn't go tearing around with too much weight - especially as it sounds like you will be on your DP1 soon. I'd keep it around 30-40 lbs and if it goes alright increase your speed / distance. Just my £0.02. Best of luck with DP1 - don't injure yourself first!

    Joining The Infantry

    Thanks for the details Humphrey Bogart et al. For other prospective infantry folks: I found the most recently published regimental journals of the PPCLI and RCR pretty good resources for a look at life in battalions. They are also useful at seeing what a career as an officer may entail...

    British Military Current Events

    This is pretty big news over here right now: SAS accused of killing unarmed Afghan civilians The Royal Military Police is investigating an allegation that British special forces killed unarmed Afghan civilians, the BBC understands. The BBC has spoken to one man who says four members of his...

    Canadian Special Operations Force Command (CANSOFCOM)

    I'm not saying it proves anything. But I think it does speak to what we were talking about earlier in terms of what roles are suitable for SOF vs. line units. I'm not out to argue one way or the other but I think how different nations are approaching these "limited" engagements whether in...

    Canadian Special Operations Force Command (CANSOFCOM)

    I meant to add that it is related to the discussion above: "Death of U.S. soldier in Afghanistan highlights the evolving role of conventional combat troops there"

    Interview advice (merged)

    Don't sweat it too much man. I doubt it will be a disqualifying factor and I wouldn't say you screwed up "royally". If you did well in the rest of the interview I am sure everything will be fine. The interviewer is likely not even thinking about it at all. Best of luck.

    The Khadr Thread

    Agreed. It was disgraceful that we allowed a Canadian child to be tortured into confession and detained at Guantanamo. Opinions obviously vary widely but I stand by this 100%. Glad to see we are trying to make this right in some way.

    Canadian Special Operations Force Command (CANSOFCOM)

    I guess it also begs the question - do CANSOFCOM units really need to be the lead on all of the "train, advise, assist" jobs? I know capacity is more of an issue with 9 infantry battalions, but surely some of the regular battalions could be involved in some way? I'm sure this has been...

    USMC Artillery using Precision Guidance Kit in Syria

    The author of that article is a former US Marine. He has done some good work since making the career change. He is worth a follow on Twitter @tmgneff

    History made with first woman to captain Queen's guard - The Telegraph (UK)

    I fought through (with) the tourists with selfie sticks on Canada Day to watch the Patricias march in. Was pretty cool to see! I'm sure I'll see a few dozen Patricias smashing up Soho at some point!
