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:


  2. He got made redundant halfway through training.

    What the fcuk?
  3. If you want to know more about how the door was slammed shut on many aspirant aircrew, there's a thread on PPRuNE Mil board.
  4. Well, he passed out of the hallowed portals of Sleaford Tech, reaching the rank of Flying Officer - you pass out as a Pilot Officer - so he at least go that far.

    He might be former ChairForce, but more power to his elbow for his mighty application and effort in getting as far as he has in his chosen sport. It's a great pity that Their Airships didn't keep such a highly-motivated bloke in the RFC, IMHO - the way they are cutting back on our defence makes you wonder whose side they might be on after all is said and done.

    We are almost at the point that the RN finds itself, with one crew that can multi-task on any kind of ship we might have left. One each, pilot for one each, aircraft is not far off, if it hasn't already arrived while we weren't looking.

  5. Strangely off-message this news story. You'd think they'd want these redundees to disappear quietly unless "look at the high calibre individuals we're being forced to bin" is the new message.
  6. Not like the RAF PR machine to drop the ball..........................
  7. It's almost as though the MC team's silently rebelling in the only way it can.
    First RAF story I've ever seen that's not about some Snowdrop proposing to his dog or something of that pattern.
