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. Looking for the idiots guide to abbreviations- looking through the FTRS monthly trawl and wondering what E1, E2, etc etc are (mainly E2)

    thanks
     
  2. E2 any capbadge considered.

    Cardinal
     
  3. Currently thats " Desperate for any capbadge" - Note the number of "Open Advert" rather than closing date. Means no-one applied, first breathing body with anything like the right quals gets the job.
     
  4. Why does that list feel as though it was put together by someone in HR?
     
  5. msr

    msr LE

    It doesn't answer the question, try providing a helpful answer...


    msr
     
  6. Okey dokey- thanks
     
  7. Army glossary

  10. NATO rank system to show equivalent ranks between countries and services. OF = Officer, E = Enlisted.

    E1=Pte
    E2=L/Cpl
    E3=Cpl
    etc.

    OF1=2Lt
    OF2=Lt
    OF3=Capt
    etc.
