Bn amalgamated- what was it like?

Discussion in 'Officers' started by rabfan, Aug 14, 2012.

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. My Bn is to be amalgamated over the next few years (around the time I move on from platoon command) . I just wanted to see if anyone here has experienced previous amalgamations, how did it work out? Were people lost through the cracks in the struggle to find jobs for these extra officers? What was mess life like?

    Ultimately I will back myself to get the jobs I would like, but would hate to end up as 'SO3 cylumes' or some other non job!

    (In principle I'm not against the almagamation, as if done properly we will end up in a strong position, I just wouldn't want to be someone in Glasgow trying to manage the process!)
