LCpl to Cpl Promotion Board

Discussion in 'Sappers' started by plant_life, Sep 15, 2005.

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. A lot of guys will be on the p155 today I think. Is it just me or has there been a lot of 251's selected? There's guys on there who were sappers 2 years ago. Just a quick winge. Fair one if the guy is absolutely amazing he/she deserves to get selected but nothing beats a bit of experiance etc.
  2. Aaayyyy.....and some belters on the Cpl to Sgt board......tut tut
  3. If you follow the now routine route of Spr to LCpl in 2 years and then the majority getting their 2nd on first look it all begins to make sense. I don't agree with it but it seems they up top believe it will keep people in, so we end up with LCpl's being the new Sappers, Cpl's being the new LCpls and stripeys being the new Sect Comds!!! In my troop of 22 there are 3 sappers and we are about to go back to Iraq with that orbat, this means that over half of the LCpls will be Sect sappers and I bet they will still get their 2nd on return!
