LEEDS DET

i have it on good authority that the Leeds Detachment RMR is now up and running. They train Thursdays and after a local advertising campaign have come up with about 12 ex regulars to form the core of the detachment.
HQ is based in Newcastle ( so plenty of oppertunity for good runs ashore!!)
They are on the lookout for a few good men!

The RMR were in on Thursday evening and looked to have a good class full.

They drill at Carlton Barracks, Carlton Gate, Leeds, LS78HE. Every Thursday evening from 19.30 to 21.30.

I'm from Ceres Division RNR. Looking forward to working with you fellas.

If I was from a nasty organisation I would be saying thank you for the above info and you well may see me hanging around the above address on a Thursday evening collecting car reg numbers. I might even follow you home and having found your address leave you wondering why the parcel you received from foreign part smells of almonds and has wires hanging out of it.

I think wet blobby was offering advice in an obtuse way.

Given that Ceres Division have their own website, with the full address of the unit and the drill night details then the information is in the public domain.

The site doesn't include the RMR det yet, but given the rest of the information on there I don't see it as being unlikely.

And the nature of recruiting means that the information is probably public domain anyway in a fair amount of the local media and press.

That said, giving the strength probably isn't the wisest move.

Come on fella's, be realistic. Even the Royal Navy website has the name, address, telephone numbers, email address, drill days and times of the RNR units. I'm sure the RMR websites have the same.

Do you think they vet every potential recruit before they tell them where they are and when they'll be there??

That would really work wouldn't it. After completing the medical, fitness test, aptitude test, interview and waiting six months for your security clearance to come through they finally tell you the details of the unit and you realise you cant make it cos thats the evening you go salsa dancing!!!

I think there is a difficult balance to find between attracting the right people ie no walts and publicising the opening of a new detachment.
My inital post was intended to do no more than prehaps stimulate some interest , after all i think its been some 15 years or so since the last new RMR Det opened ( Birmingham i think )
Any one with an ounce of common dog who was interested would i trust make their own enquires with the relavent agencies.
