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. This probably sounds completely ****, but what is a 'DS'

    I've just had my joining instructions through the post for a recruit selection weekend in Grantham and on the timetables it keeps referring to 'DS' this and 'DS' that.

    'DS: uniform' is on there more than once too.

    Please could anybody clear this small trifling (and yet still annoying) detail up for me?

    Directing Staff
  3. Directing Staff unless I've gone completely :slow:
  4. Usually it means 'directing staff'.

    That is the people in charge of running the course.
  5. or detective sergeant :p
  6. Misleading post title!

    It's Directing Staff - surely its in Arrsepedia?!?

  9. I was up there for the same this weekend.
    Depending on numbers be prepared for a long wait with your medical which is very indepth. Don't worry about the BARB test as it is all explained to you and don't turn up pissed and fall out the top bunk like one of our lot did.
