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. Just a quick question,
    How long does / should it take to gain the rank of CAPTAIN in the British Army ??
  2. 5 years.

    Or 22 years if you go the long route!
  3. Was it ever automatic after a year of leaving Sandhurst?
  4. Normally that's 2nd pip. Not third.
  5. Takes 3 years now (Grad or non-grad) for a DE Officer.
  6. I meant for Sigs/Reme officers holding a relevant engineering degree? I thought they were fast tracked.
  7. Local/Acting (but still wearing all three pips)- it is do-able within a year. A good mate of mine was wearing his 3rd pip on Telic 11, only 14 months after leaving the factory.

    Another mate of mine, a sergeant in the Signals was OMLTing in Afghanistan and he got to wear two pips instead of his normal three tapes.
  8. The shame ...
