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. I would like to know, if anyone can help me with a few questions I have regarding an officers life in the army ,i am doing a bit of research for a book i am writing. i have looked on the normal factual sites ,but there are still a few questions i need to have answered ,so if anyone can answer them i would be very grateful ,. i am a civilian by the way .
    ok here we go , 1.Do officers who are single have on-suites in their living quarters or do they share?.
    2 Do officers do there own laundry or cleaning ?
    3. How many days a week does a officer have off for r & r ?
    4. What roughly, would be a typical day for an officer ?
    5. Would officers eat in the officers mess ? (stupid question I know ,which I think I know the answer to already lol)
    The next few questions are regarding the officers mess kitchen ,I have a little knowledge of this as I lived with some one who was a civilian attached in the OM kitchen catering for the officers at the Hounslow barracks in Middlesex.
    1.Do they still have TV dinners and would a officer be in charge of the OM kitchen ?
    2.Is the officers mess only used by the officers or can the sergeants use it too ?
    anyway many thanks in advance to anyone that may be able to help :D
  2. 1. Officers are always stabled with their horses, they will share the facilities.

    2. No, Batman does this for him.

    3. Typically? All of them.

    4. Monday.

    5. And the other officers mess.

    5.1. TV's are no longer eaten in most messes, officers are always in charge of the om.

    5.2. Sergents can use the mess when the officers have finished with it.

    If you are writing a book I suggest your spelling improves dramatically.
