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. Rights lets find out who is who.....

    Im ACF (SSI) and have 4 years regular service and now 9 years with the ACF........

    Who else will name and "shame" themselves..........................

  2. Ex-L/Cpl Devizes Platoon, Anzio Coy, Wiltshire Btn...

    ...left because they couldn't organise a wet t-shirt competition in a monsoon.

    ...Instead it turns-out the Scout Accociation offer more adventure sports, more discipline, more shooting and it is more highly looked upon by officer recruiting. I am now a skills-instructor and leading international expeditions. Beats a full-screw in the mud in Wiltshire.

    ...Well, one-sort anyway!

  3. im also ACF , Im an SI just out of my AIC now waiting for ITC, been in since sept as a CI and on staff since may.

    ive named myself but not ashamed ! ya boo :D

    im also ACF , Im an SI just out of my AIC now waiting for ITC, been in since sept as a CI and on staff since may

  11. maninblack

    maninblack LE Book Reviewer

    Ex Reg, Ex TA, currently SI ACF Detachment Commander. Been with the paramilitary Scouts for 1 year.
  12. to add to the above intials

    AIC = adult induction course

    ITC = instructors training course

    CI = civilian instructor

    man in black is suitably qualified to speak on all three sections of the army as he has been in the Regs, TA now in ACF so anything he has to say has some credibility
  13. I am sure maninblack does speak with some credibility,but are you saying if you have not done all 3 then you have no credibility?

    I will be carefull what I say as my 24years regular service only,( no TA and ACF and all the other ones LOL), as it may may lack credibility !!!!!!!! 8O
  14. i suppose you have said it :) i wouldn't speak about anything that i don't know about :wink: so ACF bashing can happen due to ignorance of what we do.

    i have no Regs or TA experience so i wouldnt comment on operational stuff

  15. Nor should you , but there is a VAST difference between a regular serviceman, (including a TA serviceman with no reg experience)and ACF instructors (with neither) and cadets.
