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. Does anyone have any information about what the army is about the South african mercenary law? I have a couple of soldiers that are quite worried and no one can give us a striaght answer.

    The parliament’s defense portfolio committee heard in June that an agreement existed under which Commonwealth member countries allowed their citizens to serve in each other’s armed forces.
    South Africa could therefore not simply bar such participation, a defense department official said at the time — conceding the deployment clause was problematic.


    This is Africa we're talking about - just don't tell them you were deployed and there's no way they'd find out. It is deployment, not membership that might cause a problem.
     
  3. The straight answer is to use the Chain of Command. Your RAO, Adjt or RCMO will have access to the most recent Army Briefing note and other relevant policy letters. You will help those soldiers better by going through the CoC in this instance.

    Edited for spooling.
