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. This was the mantra and legacy of a previous GOC HQ UKSC(G)......

    Well Sir, its ******* failed.

    Although I believe Veterans can now use Base Admin between 1330 and 1500 each Wednesday which is the main thing.
     
  2. Correct, nice thought, but it was always pre-destined to fail.

    Since Col. Knipes arrived at bfg licensing in 1997 & his successors, layer upon layer of new rules & regulations have been piled, in particular on bfg licensing to the point where new rules contradict old rules & at times they have great difficulty interpreting right & wrong themselves. Even a Philadelphia lawyer would have difficulty, never mind 18 year old Private bloggs.

    Once created, this plethora & dense thicket of rules is very difficult to unwind in the short 2 year tenure of Major General Mungo Melvin. Bright idea, now try implementing it sir.

    But it least it all still keeps bfg customs & immigration in a job since they do`nt have an inner german border to patrol any longer !
