It has been quoted else where that the RNR is: 947 Officers, 1289 Ratings. Now I am not sure where the contributor got those figures from but they are plausible. I have heard that the RNR is only about 40% trained strength, not privaleged info on my part and may be completely out, but this is a rumour site after all! If it is accurate then each unit is provided 68 trained reservists to the RN. Not a glowing endorsement of the cost effectiveness of our service. What are others experiences of why reservists are not trained strength?
