Corps RSM - DMS = RADC

Discussion in 'Professionally Qualified, RAMC and QARANC' started by GP3_Bunny, Sep 10, 2005.

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. Next DMS RSM to be a Dental Support Specialist - Discuss

    1) why should it be so
    2) why have the RADC the best RSM
    3) why we should have a Tri Service RSM who is RADC

  2. If he/she is up to the job, then so be it!

    Bring on the change, the AMS needs a shake up!
  4. Can't be any worse than some of the stains that have held the post in the past!!!
  5. There should be four Corps RSM's for:

    1 x RAMC (not Got as he is too tied up with AMS matters)
    1 x RADC (already got)
    1 x RAVC (already got)
    1 x QARANC( already got)

    and there should be a further AMS RSM which should be on a rotational basis switching between each Corps.

    The current AMS Corps RSM spends time on all four Corps business, which in MHO detracts from his RAMC responsibilities. Create a new AMS Corps RSM Appt, thats what I say.
  6. not any more, she resigned about a month ago.
  7. You have a very valid point and I fully support you - First amoungst equals - you really have hit the nail on the head. It is something that AMD really need to consider. :D
  8. 2) why have the RADC the best RSM - have they???????
  9. A curious question from someone whos not or has been in the ranks of any the medical services, but, why so many RSM's? how much rank and file is there in the RADC or the RAVC or QARANC?. Why not have a 'medical corps' RSM? I was a CSM with 168 rank and file in my Company, surely, if you had a RADC RSM for example, it implies you have a 'regiment' or a 'battalion' is there enough of you to call yourselves that?
    Dont beat me up, just curious and bored at work and ex serviceman in a sea of civvies

    They each have seperate RSMs for the corps because they are individual corps.

    Historically the RADC were treated pretty badly by the powers that be at Keogh Barrack so the RADC established as much autonomy as possible. The strength of the RADC during world war 2 was such that they had their own depot.

  12. Okay, but how many in that Corps these days? 200? 100? And what is the breakup of ranks..still just curious
    Can you PM me about Zack
  13. Sorry FF a large tongue was looking for a suitable piece of cheek to reside in

    it seemed to me like a statement in the original post and i was seeking clarification from GP3_Bunny
  14. To further the debate, maybe the AMS should consider the appointment of an AMS RSM who, considering that each Corps has its own RSM will have less to do, could hold the appt for less time maybe 12 - 18 months, so as to avoid the inevitable (I've had enough syndrome).

    Lets face it how many individuals have time to complete the RSM of a unit/Regt appointment, Bde RSM appointment and still have time to be the Corps RSM ?
  15. LOL many thanks for your response - there is a very valid point - and one that FF kindly put forward - there really needs to be a RSM of CORPS statue that is "First amongst equals".

    I say this from experience when at the Senior Regimental Sergeants Majors Conference held in Woolwich it was a little disappointing to note that "most" - got to be careful here - Corps have - just as implied by FF - the AMS needs - no requires a Senior RSM.


    This will drag the current AMS (RAMC) RSM out of the weeds and enable him/her the ability to FOCUS on Corps matters across all four Corps. I fully and uterly appreciate the "Politics" around the possibility that the first one will be a RADC person - but ha ho :)

    Just a few thoughts
