I have the privilege to be the Deputy Commandant of the City & County of Bristol ACF. We are unfortunately experiencing a recruitment shortfall in people between the ages of 18 and 55 who are willing to volunteer as adult instructors or civilian volunteers. Is there a way I can raise the profile of this need through the medium of Forces Tv?

Darren Eddom: This isn't the website of Forces TV and it's unlikely that anyone from the channel will see your message here. I would suggest contacting the broadcaster via their own website SSVC - The Services Sound and Vision Corporation
