The 6 Year Rule

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. I wasn't too sure where to bang this request for gen, so I thought that this was good a place as any. I read something on another forum that states that personnel who have been fully badged for 6 years in the SAS become 'permanent', i.e. the regiment becomes the parent unit. It's the first time I've heard of this 'ruling' and it smacks of beaulocks. Is this correct?
  2. never herd of it fella.

    might be a first.
  3. ask ross kemp
  4. It can't be, because that would mean that they couldn't be RTU'd to their parent unit, or any decorations cannot be conferred as if they are in there parent unit.

    Load of crap methinks.
  5. Yes, the RTU thing was the first thing that I thought of. I did ask Ross, but he told me to ferk owf as he was doing an after dinner speech at 49's annual bash.

    I'm going to file the 'rule' in the B1N folder. Like I say, it's the first time I've ever heard of it, and as I'm somewhat 'out of the loop' these days, I can't just pick a phone up and ask. Any ex-hooligans reading this would be welcome to comment.
