    Well! That's nice isn't it?! I was at work anyway!

    A question for anyone on IOT at the moment; what course is E Squadron? IOT 1? I ask as they are giving anyone interested in commissioning a brief here this evening on the new course.
    E Squadron are Dev Flight if I remember correctly.

    Correct, they aren't on the main course at the minute.

    Hmm perhaps the email I receieved about the brief wasn't quite right as I'm sure they said they were on course at the moment. Was quite useful for me though! Nice to talk to some people about their own experiences of the course.

    E sqn is all the short and special courses. So for example one flight is for the biffs, such as our Gem , one for those who failed on certain aspects of the course such as leadership ability, others are for the short courses ie ATC and RAuxAF Officers and one for SERE, im sure there's some others for other things too.

    The only active IOT sqns are B, C and D. A Sqn is for NCAIT.

    Yes, press alt and f4 at the same time to find the answer. It's an Armed Forces section trick; it gives you the reasons why people wish to fight for Queen and Country.
