Length of Service

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. Dear all,

    I assume that serving 3 years excludes the one year training at Sandhurst? So in total it is 4 years of service?

    Kind Regards,

  2. Correct, as a minimum. However the changes to the Officer Career Structure (seperate thread on this) mean that (as I understand it) you will automatically be able to serve for the max 8 years after commissioning on a Short-Service Commission, but will be able to get out at the earliest after 3 yrs.
