Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by D-Runner, Feb 13, 2010.

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. Have a cousin who worked for KBR in basra for 3 years he was on £60.000 a year tax free for plumbing. He came backhome on leave saying the soldiers were all loosers and he was better than them . He claims his equivalent rank is army captain and says all soldiers need to call him (sir). Anyways this ideot i speak off got a medal for service.

    Feel free to leave your opinions because next time he starts his shit ill show him this forum and say the army lads said say your captain walt.

  10. Your posts make my teeth itch.
     
  11. OK perhaps some further clarification is required.

    To be fair, we all got medals for being there, put in perspective we were there 3 years when most soldiers were there only 6 months and RAF 4 months at a time, I know its not the same but some of our guys were in some of the camps that were under regular attack at some points and we were getting fairly regular incoming round about when I left at end of 2006. 2 weeks after I left a mortar hit the compound I worked in and killed 3 of our staff.

    I have posted pon a previous thread about the rights and wrongs of civilian contractors being awarded medals and in my view they are just as entitled as anyone else. They are actually deplyed under MoD rules and have MoD ID cards and are probably more entitled than some civvies who get them.

    To be fair the rank thing probably came about because at one point the Military did an exercise to give us all equivalant ranks to allow some of us mess privileges but most didnt pay much attention to that. The same thing happenned when many of us were in Kosovo in 2000 with Hiberna FM
