I find the idea to force civvies into uniform a bit strange. Last August the Air Commodore told me categorically that civilian staff would not be pressured into taking up NCO / officer status. Her words being along the lines of 'rather have them happy in civvies than miserable in blue'.

Admittedly this was for staff on ATC squadrons, but surely the sentiment stays the same. It rather tends to support another statement made to me by a VSO about senior officers running their own little fiefdoms within the corps.....
