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. Is it really needed? how many sex change 'women' are there in the Armed Forces and does it warrant money being spent on a 33-page guide on how to treat 'them'?
    And the next guide will be on.........??

    'Defence chiefs are under attack for producing an 11,000-word guide on dealing with transsexuals in the Armed Forces.
    They are accused of wasting time and money on the 33-page document while troops face helicopter and equipment shortages.
    The Policy for the Recruitment and Management of Transsexual Personnel in the Armed Forces goes into extraordinary detail to explain what transsexualism is and how to avoid discriminating against people who change sex.'

  2. Oh good, another mail article bordering on hysteria…

    I opened up the document, and its just a DIN. Its full of very dull admin instructions about the admin required to handle anyone who becomes a TS in the armed forces, and also guidance on what to do should one apply to join up. Very dull, but one of those things that needs to be done. If we have a policy of allowing TS people in the forces, then we have to accept that there is additional admin work required to make it happen.

    Delighted to see the daily heil readers calling for the firing of the author with loss of pension rights though – because that’ll really make a difference…
  3. Perhaps Legs wrote it?
  4. Spot on! I take it the article wasn't written by THEM or that an RAF aircraft headed for AFG was diverted to make the Instructions happen 8)
