Bullying still goes on.

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:

    Air Force Worst of the Three Services>>
    How awful!>>A recent report by experts has found that allegations of "a culture of>widespread bullying and brutality" within the Military are, in the most >part> unfounded.>>The audit team, which traveled to every Defense establishment across the>country and abroad and interviewed staff from all three services, found>surprisingly few cases of unfair treatment and bullying within the Army and>Navy.>>When it came to the Air Force, however, the report told a different story.>Complaints to the team came from a total of 3,555 Air Force members,>compared with three from Navy and just one from Army.>>While this statistic is alarming in its own right, it becomes horrific when>one considers that each complaint represents a sad story of abuse,>mistreatment and neglect.>>As one senior Air Force officer put it, "Each story is, in itself, a sad>indictment on the Military. When taken as a whole, however, they>demonstrate a reprehensible lack of regard for personnel on the part of>managers at all levels.">>One young pilot told of having to spend two nights in tented accommodation,>despite the fact that there was an empty five-star hotel just 1 kilometer>away.>>Another said that he had been forced to endure a grueling fitness test >every>year since he joined in 1997.>>One airman alleged that she had been overlooked for promotion on numerous>occasions, simply because she was fat, lazy and stupid.>>An airman stated he had been refused permission to wear civilian attire to>work, despite the fact that his uniform clashed with his eye color.>>Another had been forced to wear uncomfortable safety boots for periods of >up>to eight hours straight.>>A clerk could not understand why she had been sent to work in a Joint>military headquarters, "I have been forced to work for horrid Army and Navy>people who just don't understand what the military is all about. I feel the>Air Force has victimized me by forcing me to do this...I will be seeking>compensation...">>Shockingly, Air Force senior ranks are also subject to mistreatment.>>One SNCO stated, "I was deeply upset when I was addressed as 'Sergeant' by>an officer. He knew my name was Robert. It was just horrible - I have>never been more humiliated in my life." In response a senior officer >stated> "the officer in question has been moved on...">>A number of personnel complained of having to attend courses that were not>relevant to their jobs, such as rigorous ground combat courses and >drawn-out>lectures on occupational health and safety. To add insult to injury, a>young A1C was even ordered to pack up chairs in the classroom>after one such course.>>The huge backlash against treatment of Air Force personnel should provide>senior officers with a vital clue with regard to the massive retention>problems experienced by the military in recent times. Over>the past two years, the Military has spent millions looking into the issue.>>Not all of the Air Force's hierarchy, however, were upset by the >revelations> Said the outgoing Chief of Staff, "I'm delighted with the result, I am>very happy that our retention problems are due, in the most part at least,>to something as harmless as bullying.>I thought everyone was leaving because of me."

  2. Very Good !
  3. Well that was a struggle to read, got there in the end though.

    Mildly funny, got a girlie giggle out of me, even with my Air Force connections...
    Sad fact is I agree with most: apart from
    This airman would not have been overlooked for promotion - she would in fact have been top of the list.
  4. More likely that they would have sneaked the new stripes onto her overalls whilst they were in the tailers having a larger arse sewn into them.
  5. No need - WRAF uniforms only come in 2 sizes - XXL and 'elephant'
  6. I knew a chiefy that had extra panels sewn in the side of of his overalls and they still didnt velcro up.
  7. Ha! Love it.

    The most annoying thing for me was seeing a good friend (hard working and of normal body size) get passed up for promotion and see a heifer get picked up who hadn't passed a fitness test since Basics (if ever).
  8. How many fecking times do we have to read this - it's been on about 4 threads now in the past month.

    Just stop it.
  9. I apologise- I hadn't seen it before, hence commenting.
