Size of the Corps...

Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by the_usual, May 18, 2012.

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. Anyone fancy themselves smarter than Google that can offer me an answer on how many personnel there are in the Royal Corps at the moment?

    If there isn't an Arrser somewhere that knows, then the Colonel himself probably doesn't... Hell, he may even be lurking here somewhere.

    - The Usual.
  2. The liability should be fairly easy to deduce from what is on the SOinC(A) website, but the true number after gaps and excesses have been taken into account will probably only be accurately known by APC.

    Have you been jiffed to deliver a tonk presentation on the Corps or something?
  3. Yes, Deane Drummond strikes again. There was a day when essay competitions were voluntary... Thanks for the reply.

    - The Usual
  5. If it makes you feel better, I'll be doing that essay too. I won't be including an accurate number of people in the Corps though, just an approx figure.
  6. As at Nov 11, predicted manning:

    11/12 - Offs x 969 & Soldiers x 6762

    12/13 - Offs x 951 & Soldiers x 6610

    (Only Tranche 1 redundacy has been taken into account)

  7. That will be going straight into my essay. Can I use this post as a reference?
  8. What sort of benderific essay is this? Why not how RF reacts in certain areas of the world?
  9. The information came from the SOinC's website under Op ENTIRETY.

  10. Quaker - exactly what I was after. Spot on.

    - The Usual
  11. You might want to check those figures, I used to work up there on the hill (a year or so ago) and I don't think the stats have been updated for a while.
