Redundancies in the Regular Army - full manning looms

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. Good news for the TA - go on Ops with half the training at a quarter of the cost.


    and there's no contract so no brown letter.

  2. Link please. or are you trying to get a bite.
  3. Here we go again!
  4. But is it the beginning of something or the end?

    Is this going to impact the TA?
  6. yes; a very sudden influx of ex regs

    Not if discharged as SNLR...

  8. old boys net work will see some find there way back :lol:
  9. Does brown letter always mean SLNR?
  10. That could end up very painful for MoD. SNLR normally has been used to bin people the army want shot of because they are not capable of doing their job. If MoD believes that they can bin 300-500 people without bining someone who is perfectly capable of doing their job at their rank and NOT get f*ked in Court, then they are dreaming, or smoking dope.
  11. Its an interesting 'take' on the state of the finances though if they can't even overbear by 500 personnel....
  12. No, the discharge papers will be phrased in the same way as they were during the last round of cuts. IIRC they made no reference to QRs 9.4xxx and just noted that the soldier/officer was discharged under the Options for Change redundancy programme.

  13. I can't see any decent soldier wanting to join the part time arm of the organisation that just kicked him in the teeth and got shut of him before they have to pay him off (resettlement grant/pension/med payout).

    Would you honestly want to go back to a civilian company that's effectively sacked you because they've got too many staff and can't manage their staffing levels without using a sledgehammer to crack a nut?
  14. Doomed! Doomed!!!!!
