Screwed over by the Army??

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. Went to work this morning, quite happy, knowing that this was my last week in work before going on OPTAG next week. I was ready and excited about my first deployment (to Iraq) and finally doing something interesting in my Army career, only to be told this morning, that 'Oh wait, you're not actually going, this sprog is!' I've had my name down for a year and was happy that something was finally happening and to be told that this morning made me want to scream!

    Anyone got any interesting stories where they've gotten all excited about something, only to get thrown back down to the ground by some senior who's got better ideas??

    A rather pished off Squirt :roll:
  2. Would that have been a Supvr R with the bright ideas?

    There is a very good reason that their trade is given the (Radio) suffix. They should only be allowed to supervise a radio - only one, no more; under no circumstances should they be allowed to supervise soldiers.
