What the reg forces needs/wants out of the reserves may not be viable for the Reserves. The Reverse have to compete not only with other employers but with recreational activities and other distractions that will want to share the same time slot as the reserve unit can offer. You have to give people a reason to give up their free time. Cool training will be part of it, proper equipment is another, but the uniform, belonging also play a part and is harder to quantify. You could name units "Manning pool #2" but we can guess how attractive that will be.
