Superintending Clerk vs Superintendent Clerk

Discussion in 'Seniors' started by broon067, Jan 2, 2009.

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 know why the name was changed from Superintending Clerk to Superintendent Clerk?
     
  2. probably due to the fact that ones means to be in control of, the other is an overseer?, do the superintending clerk would be in charge of the whole brigade where as the superintendent clrk would be more of a oversees or directs some work, establishment, organization, district, etc.; supervisor?

    my interpretation lol
     
  3. Does it really matter? After all, a shiny A*** is just a shiny A*** at the end of the day no matter what the title :)
     
  4. Combat typist if you please!
     
  5. Yeah right!

    Change 'combat' to fat and I might believe you :wink:
     
  6. My apols for getting it wrong Broon. :)
     
  7. Its the same question as why did they change

    System Co-ord
    to
    System Sergeant
    then back to
    System Co-ord

    in the AGC?

    and also

    why have a RAO and a RAO?

    One being Office other being Officer, as some units ive been at it confuses the soldier when someone says "go down the RAO's" the boss normally gets 2 or 3 a day :)
     
  8. Does that mean they are now Superintendant Combat Human Resource Specialists?

    Now that Clerk is a swear word!!
