Having being pulled up for not giving my 1st Lt enough respect in the past, I have to say it can be a two way thing, the person in question seemed to have forgotten that we are not in the Navy and do not need to be spoken to like 1st day raleigh recruit. Also having to remind some that they do not on any occaion pull any Adult up infront of the cadets, we are trying our bests but we are not experts on the Miliarty or it's ways and customesspottydog said:what do do do if a member of stsff doesnt accespt or respect the fact you are 1st lt and goess his own way. what would you do?
me im a ex squaddie and believe a swift dig round the back of the drill sheds works,
help me pease before i lose my rag and my scc rank.

So is this bloke a marine insturctor?spottydog said:ok more info the member of staff in question is an ex sea cadet abd did 8 months in the navy again i say 8 months in the navy i did 12 years service in the army. he basically thinks he know better. i have no problem with ex sea cadets at all but i was given this position because i can do this and i have contacts through work. he constatnatly under minds me and in front of cadets. i am at my wits ends the latest thing is he refuses to wear 3b's as dress as the mcd staff only wear 95's, the only problem is his no4 kit is dirty and his boots are green.
Priceless!!!spottydog said:further to rincewinds last post myself and ocmcd were called out infront of the cadets for an interview without coffee and made to see the errors of our ways. actually scc regs only state we can not smoke in front of cadets and whilst in uniform not in public. so as i wrote a smoking policy we were in an off limits area from cadets and not inview of the public. the ocmcd was also in the interview with my member of staff as my witness and he decline the offer of having a member of staff to attend on hs behalf.
mind you watch out bolton as he may be moving up there with his job.
