RSM appointment

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by ordinaryforces, Mar 13, 2012.

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. Serious quest for my time raddled memory,
    When a WO1 was appointed as RSM of the reg ..what was the average span or was it a fixed term?
    I genuinely don't know and didn't care when it mattered.
     
  2. That avatar picture really is you,isn't it? Cotdeath!!
     
  3. Normally SSgt/Csgt to WO1 is a 2yr tour.
     
  4. Now there was the RSM of 1 Lancs Fusiliers who was made up at age 24 and served for donkeys years in that rank.
    Price was his name, long thread on him somewhere on arrse.

    Amazing tale.
     
  5. Gosh, does one get appointments with the badge now, back in my day it was more a case of
    You, scrote, get in 'ere. Chuftitechuftitechuftite
    Extremely loud.
    Army must be more civilised now.

  7. obviously the question was to difficult for those who replied,
    all I wanted to know was.. when a man got the appointment as badge how long was the normal tenure before moving to pastures new?

    toffeewrapper do one.
     
  8. Depends on Capbadge, but it's going to be the normal 2 year or 3 year slot.

  9. thanks
    that's all I wanted to know in a nutshell.
     
  10. But sometimes less.
     
  11. CONGRATULATIONS fucktard, you've increased your post count by one with that pointless post.

    Now fuck off.
     
  12. Fascinating link to RSM Kitner Price. Definitely "old school". Thanks Hedgehog.
    Slightly confusing though, as it has him being appointed as the Bn RSM at both 21 and 24 years of age!

  13. You must have been bored to type that. You fucking belter. When I have a similar post count to you, mighty Dingerr, I'll start worrying about pressing the pressel.

    I'll explain why I posted what I did, just in case your medication is affecting you badly. In recent years, several have picked up, or moved on, 2 months into the job.

    I think young people put it down to the tempo of operations.
     
  14. Why not explain that in your first post then you fucking piss mop?
     
  15. So what you're really admitting is you're bone fucking idle.
