It's game over. The buzz in the Naafi queue is they're going to close all afco's down for at least 10 year starting for 2011. If you aren't in before then you're sh*t out of luck

That's the buzz :thumbright:

The only thing that I've read from a reliable source so far is that the Government is going to stick with the plans to replace Trident, but will be keeping a close eye on costs.

Even during times of redundancies there is a need for the armed forces to ensure investment in the future (especially personnel). You may see tighter entry requirements to ensure highest standards of recruitment but you shouldn't see the tap turned off even if there are simultaneous losses among the experienced cadres.

In fact you may even find that now is a good time to join because the traditional log jam at the top gets eased leading to improved promotion prospects for those further down the food chain.

Where have you heard this from, can you quote any sources. If it's from a redtop paper, just ignore it.
