Service Writing

Discussion in 'Staff College and Staff Officers' started by WonDERR, Mar 6, 2013.

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. Has anyone got a spare hard copy of the 'old' JSP 101 they don't mind parting with - when jsp101 was called service writing not defence writing, when submissions were called service papers, and before staff officers were required to address presentational issues (spin) on briefings for ministers?

    the new jsp 'defence writing' is downloadable as a pdf but i'm after the jsp 101 'service writing' which predates defence writing.

  2. From my recent experience at staff and RD, DW has gone out the window. All emails these days. What an earth do want the old SW handbook for?


  3. Agreed, despite the old'n'bold being quite pernicketty they cannot argue with JSP 101. From what I'm told, we have a lot to be indebted for towards our Junior Service brethren for simplifying the whole thing.

    If this is not the answer you're after - PM me. I have an old copy lurking about.
