1500 Hrs Hereford on Wednesday chaps. Brum is I/C Transport.




The SAS is facing a recruitment crisis because soldiers are too over-stretched to apply to join the elite regiment, a senior Army commander has warned.

In a leaked letter seen by The Daily Telegraph, the head of the infantry Brigadier Richard Dennis said the "unrelentingly demanding" operations in Afghanistan were combining to "mitigate against Special Forces recruitment".

He added that the SAS was also losing its unique status within the armed forces as "interesting operations are no longer seen as the preserve of Special Forces".

The paper said it understood that the SAS - which has planned a key role in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as in anti-terrorist operation - had a one third shortage of its front line strength.

Although details of SAS wounded statistics are secret, it is said to have suffered similarly high casualty rates to some other Army units - including an incident last year in Afghanistan when eight soldiers were badly injured in a single attack.

Writing to the head of the Army General Sir Peter Wall, Brig Dennis said he had deep concerns over the "challenge of fully manning the SAS" and that urgent action was needed to improve the "depth and quality" of potential recruits.

He quoted the commander of 22 Special Air Service Regiment as saying that there was an "understandable need for more youthful, quality volunteers".

Brig Dennis added: "I am content, notwithstanding the need to avoid any complacency, that the infantry community delivers sufficient officer and soldier volunteers to Selection. I am less confident about how we guarantee better depth of quality to increase selection pass rates. Indeed, for any measure to be successful you might consider that Army action is essential if we are to increase selection success and the enduring quality of our SF (Special Forces) community."

Brig Dennis added that many soldiers were apprehensive about applying to join the SAS as "fear of failure remains acute" and suggested commanders should "talent spot and nurture" potential recruits.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: "We do not normally comment on SF matters and we can see no reason to change that policy on this occasion."

Talking rations, cha & such...... We were innocents on our first 4 day scheme, locked in the back of the office truck, a DIY construction on the back of a QL Bedford. The rear door opened outwards, the tailgate held it shut, health & safety would have done their nut. One of the Sigs needed a leak, next halt was an hour away, there was only a small window opening in the matchboarding beside the back door. He climbed on the table which ran along each side of the truck. No way. Window was too high, Signaller's equipment was too short. It was a giggle, watching his antics, but we, too, were becoming desperate.

"Look for an old compo tin" advised the bombardier "We can fill it & chuck it out the window". No luck. "Who's got a mugs enamel ?" No volunteers. "There's this" said one, dragging a box from under the bench. He opened it to reveal silverware and wine glasses stowed there for a special dinner in the field for the officers which the Battery Captain had secretly organised to give the BC a final send off before retirement in a week's time. ........ it was National Service days, that sort of thing was hardly tactical but it could happen...... All six of us took a glass, filled it, chucked the contents through the window and repeated the exercise until bladders were empty.

There was no chance to give glasses anything more than a quick wipe down with a bit of hessian scrim, the box of implements was dragged off the truck by one of Andy Clyde's Commandos as soon as we pulled into a hide. There was some satisfaction in watching the group wining and dining in a hurricane lamp lit glade whilst we feasted on compo in our slit trenches.
