Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    I have to attend a court martial this year. Being a civvy now from after all this happened to the "accused" I just wondered a few things.

    I know I'll get a travel warrent but would the amred forces pay for a hotel etc?

    Its dependant upon your role within the "Court Martial". If a material witness yes would be the answer. Also depends on the type of CM you are attending, if it is a GCM it will last longer than a DCM. Hope this helps.
  3. Why don't you ask them?
    Instead of posting that sort of stuff on here. Unless you want everyone to know you're going to a court martial so that they'll ask you lots of questions and you'll feel special.

    A_team STFU.

    its only a few days but i ain't going to say more.

    And i would ask the navy if the feckers answered a phone.

    So if your a main witness you'd get accomodation paid etc?

    Thanks for your help.
  5. I'd get "A Few Good Men" out on DVD so you can get your

    "You can't handle the Truth!"

    speech of to pat.

    On no account use the terms

  7. With any luck you'll be found guilty of contempt of court (no real reason required, even judges don't like gwars) and they'll give you free accommodation for years...........

  9. Well free 'at the point of use' anyway. The rest of us would be paying for it of course.

    Actually, I'm beginning to relax about the amount of tax I pay just typing this...

    rest of us? tax payers, well i pay tax so i am paying for it too. don't start spouting about that. Is old news
  11. Hahaha

    anya, I cant quote chapter and verse, but I believe the responsibility for reasonable witness expenses normally lies with the side which calls you.

    It probably didnt occur to whoever sent out the summons that despite having been in the service at the time, you are now a civvy. If they cant answer their phone, drop them a line and keep a copy.
