New Years Honours (again)

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Wingletang, Dec 31, 2008.

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:

    The army's answer to retention? "if we keep praising them, they will never leave" kind of attitude developing?
  5. Apart from Baron Castleshort, who gives a f*ck.
  6. Actually given the relevant sizes of Regular and Territorial forces and the huge amount of work done by the regulars to keep it all together I think the Regular forces are under represented. But I've only been a Territorial for 36 years so what do I know.

    hierachy apparently. i think it is poo. GOC's commendations and their ilk are useless and always aimed at the wrong people.

    So then Wingletang, the question begs asking -

    How many citations did you write up and submit?
  9. And how much did you donate to the labour party?
  10. Very true, in the past my unit has written citations and awards have been given. However certain CO's would not or did not write them so nothing appeared. i would be curious to see how many were written.

    Try JSP 761, "Honours & Awards in the Armed Forces". It lays out the criteria (& rank range!) for certain awards & gives examples of specimen citations. The specimen citations are an OK starting point, but you'd need to be significantly better than these if you're going to get your citation through the various levels of filter.

    It's "Restricted - Honours", so I can't post a link. It is on DII somewhere however...

    Happy New Year!
