That's pretty impressive - that almost 30% have been mobilised in the last 5 years. Of course I'm overlooking any that have gone round the buoy, but in general a reservist can only be mobilised for something like 9 months in every 27 (or something similar...depends on type of mob).

Whilst it's nothing like the thrashing the TA are getting, which is really taking its toll, I'm impressed that 30% have come away from their 'normal' lives to deploy.

On top of that, you've got about 10% of FTRS billets filled by RNR (the rest are regular reserves) so also making an operational contribution. Then you've got the 2-weeks a year of so many which are live working, and even the majority of exercise participation is providing manpower to the regular service, enabling greater operational commitment.

Pinch is absolutely right not to allow figures to blind - they're not massive numbers - but I'm pretty impressed with this overall contribution.

In terms of man days (or 'people' days!) contributed, it's not a bad picture at all.

In terms of sustainability they're at a similar level to the RN - look at total deployed RN vs total size and you'll probably see a similar ratio. The key thing is, that this figure is sustainable - not just structured for 'the big bang' of 20 years ago. The RNR is now a permanently mobilisable asset for the RN.

Re: Hansard answer on total number of RNR deployed since 200

I think the other aspect is that the numbers quoted probably don't reflect those mobilised in UK as backfill to release regulars onto ops. That probably adds some.

Unfortunately the raw figures don't reflect what's done by the individuals deployed.

Mind you, the inference from the point made by Pinch remains valid as well, there is an overhead within the RNR which doesn't support the deployability requirement. From what I've heard, that is something which is of active interest to CMR.

Re: Hansard answer on total number of RNR deployed since 200

On the face of it the percentage deployed over the last 2/3 years seem very small. However, it does not take into account FTRS, the proportion that are on the trained strength (it takes an awful lot longer to get someone to the trained strength in the RNR than the regulars, and therefore deployable), and the disproportionate loading of some of the mobilisations on some specialisations and ranks/rates. Also the number that are on the RNR books is rather misleading for many reasons, so trying to work out a percentage deployed figure could be rather variable!

Still, the Army and RAF seem a lot better at utilising their Reserves, and much of the mobilisation of the RNR over the last year or two has been to fill slots in their organisations (and the RM) on Telic and Herrick.

I guess the other argument is that current operations are predominantly land based. Should they go sea based then you'll see a far greater proportion of the RNR mobilised. Some may see the 15% mobilised for Telic 1 as low, but Roulement did not occur as the initial land campaign was unexpectedly swift.
