It Could be worse... or could it?

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. The other day we were having one of those 'It's shit, I'm getting out' chats in the Platoon Office, when somebody piped up with"well, it could be worse".

    On reflection I was wondering how it could be worse. Here are a few ideas:

    1. RAF to run ALL movement across the services (including holiday flights whilst on leave).

    2. TCH to have ultimate tactical command of Field Army.

    3. Leave to be at irregular times and of irregular duration in order to avoid setting patterns.

    4. Units to have Political Officers. Health and Safety, Equal Oppurtunity and Welfare Officers to be made established appointments down to Sub-Unit level.

    5. Army pay to be slashed in order to fund new pay rises for senior civil servants - we need to retain the best.

    Anybody got any others?
  2. So,What is new about this?
  3. Not PC but then I havn't done my PC ITD(A) yet but it could be worse ............. young women in the infantry??

    All British Forces to be commanded by French Officers, fed by MacDonalds, and clothed by the Chinese Army.

    We’re almost there, then….
  5. World peace declared by Dubya, Blair disbands all three services.

    Have a Nice day :D
  6. Jarvis to maintain all vehicles

    Michael Moore to run all weapon training

    RMP to run all recruiting

    Landmarc to continue to run ranges

    Trinny and Susannah to design uniforms

    All RAO functions outsourced to a call centre in Bangalore
  7. Three services restructuring:
    All boats and diving to come under the Navy.
    All aircraft to come under the RAF(this includes hovercraft)
    All tracked,wheeled, and and anything inbetween vehicles to come under the Army.
    All UKSF rebadged AGC
  8. Tri service catering to be outsourced to Sodexho?

    Prisoner escort details to MCTC to be awarded to Reliance?
