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. Hello,

    (I am new to this forum by the way, so hello)

    I have a question, I have recently joined my local TA unit, Signals, but I was wondering of one of you could point me in the direction of some information with regards to the hundreds of acronyms that the army use when referring mainly to I sometimes feel they're speaking anything but English, but feel a bit silly about asking....

  2. SPSI is an abbreviation of 'Special Part-time Signals Inventory clerk'

    hope this helps.
  3. Now *that's* just unfair, COS...

  4. Sorry...

    how about

    OC = Old Codger
    SSM = Seriously Senile Matelot
    QM = Queer Monger
    SQMS = Strange Queer Monger Subordinate
    PSAO = re-arrange to SAOP or Send Answers On a Postcard - suggestions anyone????
