‘A Good Employer’? The All‐Regular Army

‘A Good Employer’? The All‐Regular Army

(p.172) 8 ‘A Good Employer’? The All‐Regular Army
Army, Empire, and Cold War

David French

Oxford University Press

The manpower requirements of the all‐regular army were no different from those of the National Service army. It still needed an adequate supply of recruits who were sufficiently well‐educated and fit for military service. It then had to make the best possible use of them by allocating them to jobs that they could do, and it had to train them to do them. This chapter analyses the manpower base of the all‐regular army that emerged from the Sandy's reforms. It examines what the military authorities thought being a ‘good employer’ meant. It explores the difficulties they confronted in recruiting, and retaining sufficient manpower, and shows how they struggled to make the most effective use of the personnel they could find.

Keywords:   Whistler and Grigg reports, regular recruiting, manpower retention
