Why would they have fut-futs when they are supposedly full? From my military time, advance promotions were always done to "fill holes" regardless of whether the person was any good or not. What's the Legion's logic in this? Couldn't they take a switched on legionnaire that has already served in a regiment and just promote him a bit early?
Considering that a 1ere Class had on average 3 years service before getting his stripes and knows pretty much all they can teach you on a corporals course, despising these people who act like God's gift in Castelpiff- know feck all about how things work in their Reg, not to mention have no company speciality skills when they arrive - is natural thinking they are useless until proven otherwise!
Because this whole being full stuff is complete BS. There might be a lot of new recruits... but there seems to be a need for corporals and sergeants. And yes, there are also quite a lot of guys who are getting promoted "early" (early to me would be corporal before 3 years of service). This also depends on the regiment... In 2REI and 2REP it's normally between 2 and 4 years before they send you... Whereas those bloody wankers from 1reg, 2reg and 1rec generally go earlier.Why would they have fut-futs when they are supposedly full?
