Half Squadrons

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. Here's an interesting rumour picked up recently:

    Premise based on recent history - squadrons (AH and Lx) are more likely to deploy in a half squadron of four than a whole squadron of eight.

    Therefore, rather than bodging it, configure squadrons so that they can be evenly split and deployed as half squadrons.

    Therefore upgrade the Sqn 2IC to a majors post and make that post command earning.

    Therefore solve current and future shortage of commands!!!

    Just a half squadron for me please - I could never command a whole one!
