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:

    I am a cadet instructor so i am well placed to comment on such things, my question is this ' why do they have to photograph AI's that not only look physically unfit, biologically unhealthy and overall the Farking stereotype of a friggin sex offender?

    Thank you, that is all.

    If you have a question then please raise it in a constructive manner rather than in the styles of a recipient of congenital disease.

    Other than that, take your head outside and give it a wobble.

    Nope no question, just expressing an opinion, albeit a slightly unconventional opinion, no offence intended, just those friday afternoon blues

    The photos reflect reality, half the instructors are bigger than ideal. I am and I was when I was an acf instructor. What is the point of using instructors who think they are Andy McNab? They are usually the ones that end up being escorted off camp.

    That is true, and most of the activities performed by ACF instructors do not require super human strength,endurance and stamina, however i do think most of the current forms used by the ACF (529 joining form) and publically available images do not show AI's in the best light, especially to many who enjoy taking the piss (a lot like i did above).

    Now i am no superman, nor do i profess to be a super soldier, and most certainly do not pretend to be anything other than i am, perhaps in future my comments should be presented in a more respectable manner (at least until i see which way the thread goes)
  6. True, but one has to strike a balance somewhere. The advance party of the county acf that came to take over the accomodation from us at a certain training camp earlier this year were a fecking disgrace. All were morbidly obese and one of them looked like an overweight version of the little bald fella whose head benny hill used to slap. Dressed in slacks and a vest! I thought they were going to offer to do some cheap tarmacing

  7. So thats why I have never heard back! Twice I have sent of application forms and twice I never heard a thing back!

    Perhaps at 11 stone, fully "Enhanced Disclosured" and experience teaching, lecturing and instructing youngsters and 11 years service is not what they are after :(
  8. If you are serious, then i suggest that you phone up directly your county hq. The acf always needs instructors, especially good ones. Unfortunately the admin at some county levels leaves a lot to be desired.

  9. Hang on a minute, hang on just one ******* minute. Every other thread in this forum consists of pages of ACF bashing by the same tossers, and I've never once seen them get pulled up on it. It's become a 2nd NAAFI, you want a laugh, go and prod the bum touchers for 10 minutes. An actual ACF person states a legitimate point and he gets a lecture? Considering it's dress and standards that always seem to attract derision, surely he's got a point?

  10. Honor roll flapjack its all part of arrse, if your an ACF instructor it seems you are a peado/walt/gun nut , as we who have been ACF instructors for years know this isnt true, but to some poor misguided souls, no matter how we try and convince them can not see past there own prejudices.
  11. Yeah, I know, it just goes beyond blood boiling sometimes. I'm happy with banter, but it gets far too malicious sometimes.
  12. I feel the moderator should do something about it really. Enough is enough...........

    Secondly, it would be nice if the subject matter website included the CCF.
  13. Well it is about the ACF on the ACF site...

    Is there not an CCF website?
  14. If a comment breaches the rules then MiB or I do act. What we don't do is go wading in to defend the honour of people who gip like a big girls blouse that the big boys on the playground are saying nasty things about them, you can choose to either respond in like manner or ignore it. Neither miB have the time or inclination to remove every comment you feel is too harsh, and besides, it would only encourage more of it as a wind up.
