Post subject:  WANTED: Training Officers for the Grande Armée

Officers of the Grande Armée,
France is in need of more Training Officers as it can not match the speed of new French cadets joining with its current output of trained officers.

Attached is a Trainer Protocol that lists points that need to be covered in such a proper training, beware that it's only for the Napoleonic Battles series as other games are very seldom played in the club.
Training would be split into a Mandatory Training with 2 phases, and an Optional Advanced Training that the new cadets can take but are not required to do so. The mandatory part will prepare the cadet in phase 1 for gaming and will prove if he is able to handle the Napoleonic Battles game engine, and in phase 2 club matters will be handled. The mandatory part covers only the most essential things to get along in the club & on the battlefield. The optional advanced part would expand gaming & club matters further to prepare the cadet even better for the combat in the field and the matters in the club.

Officers who volunteer as Training Officers are rewarded for training games with 0,5 OBD points(same as in a maneuver) & 0,5 AP per turn played. AP are Administrative Points and will yield awards from the Légion d’honneur series, these in return will also give additional AP. In addition the successful accomplishment of the cadet's training on the Mandatory level will yield 5 AP, and on the Optional Advanced level 8 AP, these in return will also give additional AP. Last but not least are awards from the L’École Spéciale Impériale Militaire for training a certain amount of cadets, these again give additional AP.


So if you feel able & willing to train cadets along the lines of the Trainer Protocol post here or contact me by mail or PM.

I probably need training myself, but if you really need someone...

Well You played a lot and seem to have a good win:loss ratio(at least a lot better than others :-)).
So if you think you can at least basically cover the points I listed in the attached file in the first post I would be happy make you a training officer.

Mi offro come allievo della Grande Armèè, siccome un mio obbiettivo è cambiare reggimento nei "Tilallieur du po" dell' esercito francese. Ho bisogno di qualche ripasso, soprattutto nella versione 40.2 di Waterloo, e mi sono avvicinato a casa come reggimento. Vorrei quindi combattere fianco a fianco di chi parla almeno un po la mia lingua. Se tutto ciò è possibile ne sarei eternamente grato agli ufficiali del caso. <SALUTE>
Ciao Garret.

I offer myself as a student of the Grande Armè, as one of my goals is to change regiment to the "Tilallieur du po" of the French Army. I need some revision, especially in the 40.2 version of Waterloo, and I approached home as a regiment. I would therefore like to fight side by side with those who speak at least a little of my language. If this is possible I would be eternally grateful to the appropriate officers. <SALUTE>
Hi Garret.

Hi Garret.


Do I understand you correctly that you want to switch to the French side?
If so please first contact Scott Ludwig, Chief of Staff of the Allied Coalition, he will then connect me and we will handle the transfer.
I recommend to not switch over with your current records but suspend it and start a new one on the French side.

Naturalmente, anzi credo di avere gia contattato l'ufficiale di riferimento. Nel qual caso lo farò tempestivamente. Certo che questa manovra la farei se ci sono tutte le possibilità per farlo senza creare disagi all'organizzazione stessa.

Of course, indeed I think I have already contacted the officer of record. In which case I will do so promptly. Of course this maneuver I would do it if there is every possibility to do it without inconveniencing the organization itself.

Got your PM.
I'm a bit unsure about your change because if you expect to be trained right away, then I'm afraid I have to tell you that you have to wait a long long time.
We still work off new French members that joined us in the 4th quarter of 2020. So there are many many more that come before you.
It was just way too many that joined the French for the few trainers I had back then, even this volunteer call although giving me some more trainers will not help to work the waiting members off quickly.
Sorry to disappoint you.

Naturalmente non ho nessuna intenzione di passare davanti a nessuno. Come sono consapevole di perdere i privilegi ottenuti nei miei precedenti combattimenti. Avrò la pazienza necessaria che occorre in questi casi. Spero comunque che sia possibile il cambiamento perchè piano piano è quello che sto facendo anche negli altri club. Un poco alla volta riuscirò a sistemare tutto, a meno che non mi conferma che proprio non è possibile, ma ci terrei molto. Dopo una certa (piccola) esperienza di conoscenza dell'esercito alleato ora vorrei davvero combattere con i compagni del fiume Po. Reggimento che è di fatto stanziato a 30km da casa mia. Sarei piu spesso in famiglia. No, a parte gli scherzi, se non si può non si può, ma se fosse possibile con i dovuti tempi ne sarei grato. Potrei cominciare spazzando le latrine se fosse necessario...

Of course, I have no intention of passing in front of anyone. As I am aware of losing the privileges gained in my previous fights. I will have the necessary patience that is needed in such cases. I hope, however, that change is possible because slowly that is what I am doing in the other clubs as well. Little by little I will be able to fix it, unless you confirm that it just isn't possible, but I would like that very much. After some (small) experience of getting to know the Allied Army now I would really like to fight with the Po River Comrades. Regiment that is actually stationed 30km from my home. I would be in the family more often. No, all kidding aside, if you can't you can't, but if it were possible with proper timing I would be grateful. I could start by sweeping the latrines if necessary....

Nice approach, a change is fine with me, just wanted to make sure you don't have the wrong expectations.
I will contact Scott Ludwig and we will handle this mater as soon as possible.
