Body armour for the ladds on duty

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. what would be the answer to a NCO getting his own body armour, setting it up with all badges and colourings as per PM instructions?  At a personal cost of about £450.

    think on the subject of duty of care

    Can't see you getting any money through "the system" - however you could speak to your Senior Fund Manager (normally the Regt 2IC) and ask if the PRI will offset some of the cost.

    Wouldn't hold my breath though.....................
     
  3. That was ment as a joke that last entry!!!!!!!

    I already have the vest and got told i couldnt wear it as it wasnt army issue, if i wore it and my partner got stabbed and i didnt then the managenet would be liable to be sued, and if i wore it and it failed i wouldnt be able to sue the army?????????????????? my vest conforms to PM's instruction to the letter!!!!!!!!!

    does anyone else have a vest?
     
  4. I've got a vest....and a couple of tee shirts and a natty little tank top too!  What the f*ck is  this thread aimed at?  Duty of Care?  Would you care to explain or are you just going to keep us in suspense?
