Firstly my apologies to any moderators of the forum if the post is considered innapropriate, or incorrect in any way. To this end I will allow removal should it be deemed necessary to do so. It is not intended to attack any member of the ARRSE community, although reference may be made to posts by other members. In brief, my activity on ARRSE is limited, mainly due work committments, etc. Also do have a minor eye condition, and VDU use is unconfortable on occasions for me. I made two recent posts, which did have a genuine nature. The first post arising from a query on an application from an ex-officer to a position with a company to which I am associated. The second arose from that enquiry as curious about my own replacement documents, this matter is now answered by Kentigern House, which in retrospect should have been first point of contact. The last post was just a reply to a question on use of uniform outside of military service. The three posts can be found as follows: ARRSE - Intelligence Cell; ARRSE; ARRSE My gripe - if I may just call it that, is the replies of a certain member as to my use of these enquires for Walting purposes. How can this be implied from such enquiries? Firstly I need to keep confidentiality of the applicant, and indeed my own, as the use of anonimity on this website is implied. Would you post your full servive number or service details for joe public to see. The website does not screen members so privacy is an issue Lastly, as stated in my rebutal on the post - re: use of 'R' insignia by retired officers, this was just interest regarding new regulations. But my statement on Privacy Laws is genuine, there is a need to oust walt's and the act of doing so is honourable, but is very clearly an area that can break certian privacy laws and, in extreme cases could be a prosecutable offence. Ok I'm not out for a rant, just remember a user may post a question out of a genuine interest in a reply. In my case I had not seen the new style A4 Disharge Documents - printed on crappy, non-watermarked - Â£3 a ream paper before; until I needed to replace my own documents. But in conclusion, the only persons with 'Warrant' to investigate allegations of inproper use of military uniform or medals, whereby impersonationg a pesron 'with a certificate of service or discharge' is the Police and Judicial system; certainly not an Internet Forum. I do again hope this post does not cause offence to any member of the ARRSE community, it is merely to draw attention to the fact that, replies can be taken personally if cause offence. Although banter and jokes are fine in certain contexts, they can also be innapropriate.
