Career Trade Streaming, WTF?

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. If it aint bust, dont pish about with it

    33.3%
  2. Whats a trade in AAC?

    50.0%
  3. Bring on the streaming

    16.7%
  1. Latest rumour at 4....

    Just heard of the RCMO that the plans for trade streaming will be taking effect soon, ie you join as AAC signaller, tech storeman or driver/groundy.
    He explained about the "rank pyramid" structure for example, Comd Tp.

    Around 12 toms,
    10(ish) Lcpls
    3-4 Cpls
    1 sgt
    1 WO1/2
    1 Capt

    So you join as a tom, bottom of the pecking order. this means (providing no postings/discharges) that just to get to lance jack, you have to wait til the sgt has been replaced by a cpl, the cpl replaced by l/cpl, the l/cpl replaced by senior tom. So it will take nearly 12 years to get first tape???
    Nice!!! :?: :?: :!: :?:

    So if anyones heard anything new/different, spread the wealth!!![/b]
