New Rank Structure

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by phil37, Aug 9, 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. Would it not be appropriate to introduce several new ranks now that the Army is full and less soldiers are leaving?

    Good idea. I know a couple of utter mongs who should be demoted to Lance Private.
     
  3. I know this is the NAAFI, but.... why? To what purpose?
     
  4. Don't mess about with the rank structure - when they got rid of Brigadier General, we ended up fighting the Nazis!
     
  5. Lance Biff

    Corporal of the Chit

    Flight Sergeant - (Flaps a lot and gets fuck all done.)

    WOE (Stops everyone enjoying themselves)
     
  6. On a serious note and at the risk of inviting incoming; why do the British Army deem a Squadron/Company Commanders role to be a Major rather than a Captain?

  8. Yes, were lacking in Sturmbannfuhrer's.
     
  9. The guards are well ahead of you as they already have. What the fcuk is a lance sergeant for a start?
     
  10. A sergeant with a pointed stick?
     
  11. Maybe a better question would be "Is it time to get rid of some ranks". More Brigadiers than Brigades, more Admirals than ships etc.
     
  12. It's the same as a Corporal, or as you chippy fuckers would say, "Full Screw". Do try and keep up, it isn't rocket science :)
     
  13. Get rid of subalterns, everyone has a sat nav these days anyway.
     
  14. What is a Lance Corporal then? A Lance Lance Sergeant?
     
  15. Do you still nail your hats on when it gets windy?
