A Top Tip from a Welfare bod to you Chain of Command types..........

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. Tell your troops to keep a stash of cash ready for the nasty things in life like family bereavements...

    JPA/JCCC only sees black and white and is quite ruthless when it comes to deciding what's Compassionate and what is Out of Scope.

    The troops need to have some gelt handy because if they are granted Out of Scope over a weekend or block leave period then its very difficult to get access to unit funds to help them with their travel costs.

    They expect all compassionate travel to be met at public costs and all time off to be gratis.

    I've had to explain twice this week already how important up to date and accurate JPA details are especially when bad news is received.
