Allocation of GSSR deployments.

I recently recieved an email with an update as to the availability of deployments for RNR.

SW region had four opportunities of 1 and two week slots.

SE region also had four opportunities of 1 and 2 week slots.

The Northern Region had one opportunity of 4 months.

The Central region also had one opportunity of four months, starting over the Christmas period.

Is it me or does this seem a little unfair. The two southern regions are offered ORT opportunities while the rest are only offered four month deployments! They are also offered more opportunities.

Couple this with the email from the RFPO who specifies that his unit will "get first shout" at any deployments and it all looks a little poor for the central and Northern regions.

Having said that the Northern region do seem to be extremely organised when it comes to passing information throughout the region.

Has anyone else noticed this or am i being paranoid?

Must have spoken to you at Tipner, in the butts?

If not then,no, you're not the only one who has noticed this. It stinks, but then again, what do you expect at the moment.

Apparently, the regular Navy doesn't know what the GSS(R) branch is, so we will be renamed. Any suggestions?
 
If SE region has been offered "SE region also had four opportunities of 1 and 2 week slots." I who am based down there ain't aware of them.

I suspect that they don't exist.

Possibly because they all appear to be full. The email has come directly fom the top, I've followed the chain down the email from the top to the bottom to see who initiated the email.

I heard that due to the North/South divide and the economic and social decline of the North that you all got offered the 4 month one as you have no jobs and would appreciate the extended opportunity and the cash...!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
