IS MORALE HIGH?

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. Whenever questioned our Commandrers use words like " Morale is high / the boys are in fine spirit". Hearing that always make me wince when a know that morale is not really high nor are spirits high.

    So on balance do you feel that your morale is high? Answer the poll.

    The Guardian don't seem to think so

    US troops continue to kill and be killed, but like the far smaller British forces spend as much time defending themselves as fighting or helping Iraqis. British army morale has plummeted amid resentment of a culture of dependency by the Iraqi police and security forces.

  4. Morale high...hell yes 94 days to civ and counting.
     
  5. Morale... Never heard of it sorry..
     
  6. My morale was very high until I got a letter from the pollsters apologising for breaching my PERSEC by putting my full title on the envelope. Cnuts! Everyone who I know that are still in, who are Col/Brigadier rank, are deeply hacked off and spend a lot of after-dinner chatting discussing possible international tirbunals, government support and the cost of legal representation...
     
  7. Its the weekend so MORALE IS HIGH
     
  8. Morale? what the feck is that?
     
  9. Is it feck. I think this is quite apt:
     
  10. These are great - actually raised my morale!!
     
  11. I feel for you.

    You'll get out, discover civvy street is a bag of bollocks, then wish for the army again.

    I am now retired, previously I was raking in over £50k/year as a freelance IT specialist. Prior to that, I was barely scraping £20k in the army. Yet, I'd trade it all: my large house, my car, my wife/kids, to relive my time in the army.

    It's a bug, you don't know you got it until you can't do it no more.
     
  12. Succint, but I fail to see any discussion that supports the premise.
