Service Test

#1
Does it exist (on paper it does)? Everyone harps on about it so often or is it a means to an end and a get out clause when suits?????

Well, if the CoC decide that you have gone against any of these then you will be deemed to have failed 'The Service Test'. Its nothing new. It's just made easier to know where the line is now and a guideline to ensure the unit works properly. It is effective when used correctly and most of the time the guidelines laid out in the V and S are there to assist a soldier in knowing where that line is. For example, dont shag the Tp Sgts missus (or at least dont get caught).

Not too sure what you mean when you say 'means to an end' or 'get out clause'. Who for? The soldier or the CoC?


Or are you on about an entirely different Service Test??

Do you work in a small room by yourself?

If not, then perhaps unknowingly, you use it all the time.

When suits or when needed?

The idea of V and S and the service test is to ensure the guidlines are fairly clear to all concerned and should do away with 'ambiguous calls'. Of course, the primary directives can be open to interpretation which is what I suspect you are getting at?

But it appears that the service test holds no water unless you are a senior and should know better.......

I'm guessing this isn't a random question but ever so slightly leading. :roll:

I'm guessing you are intimating to a story that concerns you or someone near you and you feel that 'justice' hasn't been dealt fairly?

C'mon. You can tell us. ;)

Whos' been shagging your missus?

You're not a suddenly-ex-WO2 with a laptop full of home made movies tastefully framed by curtains, by any chance?

Thread fires, thread fires, thread stops.

Upon looking at the text you see a dodgy character who appears to have been rumbled. Carry on. :D

This cynic's opinion is that it's nothing more than common moral decency phrased so that it can be understood by all and capable of being acknowledged by PC-philes that the Army has such documentation in place.

Or, to put it another way, QR's don't expressly forbid rape and pillage. MATTS 6 is a get-out clause that let's you know that it's probably a bit dodgy to try it.

Still like to know what brought this on.

Puttee, nothing serious really just surmising how some people like to cover their own backs while trying to hang people out to dry. No doubt youll have seen it all before.

Cmon. Purely by that post, you seem to be hinting at a story. Either tell us or bin the thread.

Youre amongst friends here and its all totally anonymous. ;)

TLF, knew that would make you bite ;-)
Can you not tell the story using made up characters and a totally different scenario?

Pretend you're a cross examined child in court and the grown up is using a teddy bear pointing out the rude bits where the nasty man touched you.
