5 Reg RA Officers Role

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Could somebody give me an outline of the Officers role at 5 Regt both in barracks but also, and more particularly on operations?

    It is not 4/73 that I am talking about but troop command in either MAMBA, COBRA, or ASP.

    Are you for real? Have a word with yourself and march out of my office meatball.
  3. Barracks: Manage soldiers, duties and all the other barracks shi1te?
    Ops: Manage soldiers, Bty sh1te and stag on in the Ops Room?

    Is that fair?

  4. If you know what kit they have and already know they are Troop Commanders for that kit and the men, then a tiny jump in logic takes you to the fact that they will command the Troop in either area.

    Specific tasks in barracks - paperwork, baling blokes out of the shite (not all, but there is always 1), answering loads of inane emails and phone calls, doing Bty training programs, PT, welfare, organise an adv trg package so that it can be used to level the BCs desk, more emails...

    On Ops - not a clue, but perhaps siting the kit, working in the equivalent of a command post? Have you tried the RA webpages?
