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. Is it Company Quarter Master Store or Company Quarter Master Sergeant, boring I know but beers are on the line here
  2. Company Quarter Master Sergeant
  3. A good CQMS can sniff a brew from 2000yds!
  4. What does SQMC stand for?
  5. You cannot WAH a question!

    Think, Household Cav.
  6. Remember stores is for storing
  7. Just to confuse the issue.

    You can have an SQMS -Squadron Quarter Master Sergeant - usually a SSgt
    But Some WO2s are appointed SQMS - Staff Quarter Master Sergeant - the most senior of the WO2 appointments.
  8. Usually referred to as The Colour Boy.
  9. It can mean a lot or nothing.
    When serving as REME attached to an Armd Sqn as Sgt ECE, the Regt had a battlefield tour arranged. The SQMS designated to do the organisation had to drop out at the last minute and I stepped into the breech. No other volunteers forthcoming.
    The battlefield tour was a success, but for the rest of my time with the Sqn, the Sqn Ldr would not adress me as anything other than "Q".
    Luckily I did not get a new Tiffy, AQMS or ASM during that time, and the ones in post understood how it was meant.
