Your very own thread for asking questions, cannot guarantee that the average answer will be that intelligible / polite.  But fill your thigh length boots.

How do you know about my boots??!! That's spooky.

So.......  views please...

1) Are current infantry officers generally of good calibre and well regarded?

2) What makes an OC a good leader and a good chap?

3) What's all this 'stag on!' business... ;)

4) What is the best thing you can get in the mail when you are on operational tour - blueys, long letters, photos, messages on tape, funny cards, magazines?  All ideas and feedback gratefully received.

5) What is the number one annoying thing about civvys?

I am sure I will think of more but this should get some interesting feedback started....

Thanks gang!

Thanks Chalky - I see you are getting the hang of ARRSE life.

Obviously, you chaps in green are free to ask a civvy chick anything you like and I promise to respond honestly!

Now...

a)Why are men all obsessed with gadgets?
b)What is the best way for an OC's bird to gain the respect of his blokes?   Keep it clean now........

F_H,
You're clearly a v good lass. Top tips are:
1. If you're chatting to the boys, be genuinely interested in what they're saying. They'll hate you forever if they think you're patronising them. If you're not interested in them, feign shyness and leave them
alone.
2.  Never ever flirt with them.or be seen to be flirting with them (not that you would, I'm sure). If they're more mature, they'll see you as a horror who's undermining the boss. If they're younger/less scrupulous they'll get the wrong idea...
3.  Ignore everything soldiers and their other halves say about dress. Be yourself - we love them for being them, and they expect us to be retro warriors of timelessness.
3.  Expect to be shocked! Toms have as sick a sense of humour as Offrs/or worse. They'll also get a kick out seeing if they can get a rise after a few cans of Tennants.
4.  Most important - don't get pissed or lose your cool in front of the boys. And know when it's time to go and let them get on with what they love - getting slaughtered and beating each other up!
5.  Be prepared to give support to their other halves when we're off on tours...bit wifey this...depends how serious an Army bird you want to be!

F_H,
I'd be v wary about your last point...you'll get a reasonable idea of their conception of your blurk the company commander by how chatty they are with you. I would avoid getting too worried about feedback & 'what the lads think about the boss'....you're other half will already know what he needs to if he's remotely 'in touch'. Additionally, he has a CSM, Coy 2ic and lots of Sgts and Pl Comds to get feedback from. Ultimately, some of the bloikes will always be pissed off about something or other the boss has done....it's part of the nature of the job which we accept. Sometimes doing the right thing is guaranteed to make you unpopular. I'd leave it, if I were you, and just be yourself and listen to whatever they choose to tell you themselves.
