The Death of 7

#1
Well, after a fantastic week with even more stupid ideas on how to realy annoy the lads. I've seen and heard it all now, no wonder people are getting out. What ever happened to just doing your job, well we all have someone elses job to do, or is the system letting us all down. This is my second tour at 7 since it left the fantastic Krefeld, i'm sad to say, i think it has died its death!!!!!!!!!!
New job scope Micro manage the Seniors and let the lads laugh at them, enforce fun if you box your in. If you do your job your weak. If your go that bit extra for the lads, you come in the bottom third. SOINC (A) what is going on?

Jackass....WTF are you going on about...Nothing in your post makes much sense at all.

You sound really frustrated at present but nothing you say gives anyone any reason to assist you with your problems......That said I can sense the good in you,

Be free my child :D

Presumably you have just had your CR that states you are in the bottom third then...??
Presumably you are a Senior NCO as their CRs were due at the end of last year...??

Have you had a quick look at yourself..?? I think that's were I'd start if I were you. Just a bit of advice, not a dig. Take it or leave it.

WOT ever next , dick jobs in the Corps. Goes with the territory and its good for ya.


Try reading National Service: The Best Years of Their Lives by John Peel

Very good book all-round but does mention the fact that even then 1950 - 1960 the Corps was hated by all for being more bull shittier and dickier then even the Guards . Oh how thing don't seem to change.

Fcukin hell jackass, grow a set!

Everywhere is the same, not just at 7.

Either deal with it or try and do something to make things better.

As to CR's, I only got mine this week as well, so again chill out they will still get to MCM Div on time, or failing that lets hope they loose yours so you can cry 'career foul' :wink:

Trust me, this really isn't the case. While the glorious Corps certainly has its moments, the noble Household Division is on a whole other level...

B-T

I spent 2 tours there over the 3 locations.

Bruggen was definetaly the worst, but I still enjoyed it.

Everybody whinges, but really, why, at SNCO level and above whinge on a website when you should be trying to better the life of your troops.

FFS, I know I made a difference for the better when I was there, why can't others, or are they too spineless to speak out in work? :?

There was a lot of good SNCO's at 7 whilst i was there. 2003-06 but there was such a horrible atmoshere about the place and there was a lot of back stabbing and shitting on people that they were scared to stick their necks out through fear of having head chopped off. I mean what kind of a place turns round and tells its JNCO's that to improve their profile for promotion they have to AGAI more people that is NO DUFF by the way!!!

I was there during that period but, dependant on which Sqn you were in, it differed, because of the CoC in that particular Sqn.

It obviously shouldn't, but different people have different ways of doing things, (Not always correctly BTW).

As I said, jackass should speak to his CoC if he is that concerned, but he would rather whinge on here :roll:

7 Sigs is the worst post ever. The new CO has made some improvements though like Friday we get to knock off at 1400hrs like the rest of BFG.
When he first got here he did say he was going to have junior reps from all the squadrons to put across any points still haven't seen this happen??
Wed afternoon is now sports afternoon. But unlike sports afternoons in any other army unit where you can get your admin done or do sports if you wish. Yes at 7 Sigs you have to parade. seniors as well!! It is one of the perks of been in the army to have a sporty and if you dont want to take it then you dont have to in most units you can go shopping down tescos. Anyhow getting back to the death of 7 i actually think its improving. Need to cut down on the bullshit parades though and employ a bloody gardener i am sick of picking weeds!! Also maybe the new CO would consider a long weekend every month a Friday off maybe so us singlies can go back to UK. As for the seniors most of ours dare not speak out its not how it used to be. You could cut the atmosphere with a knife. Agai action is not the way forward!! Waste of paperwork and the clerks have enough to do trying to work JPA as they still haven't mastered it. Mind you one of them was very helpful last week when i went to the admin office and she did manage to sort my pay, so thanks!! 7 Sigs is getting better but the seniors need to be able to manage the guys without having bollockings form above. Early knock offs and sports afternoons and long weekends are all perks of the job that you dont get in civi street. I think they are important for moral. Oh and how about a 7 Sigs function once a month like the one they had on archies field in summer. Maybe the sqns could take turns to organise it. What are your feelings on 7 Sigs?? I am sure there wont be a shortage of posts unless the javelin broadband slows us down again!! Anyway enough from me i am off to Shannons.

FFs, tell me this is a WAH :roll:

If you want a long weekend put a couple of days leave in.

Why should the CO grant you days off when you come on here and bitch and moan about him?

It is every squaddies right to whinge, but constructive, not 'they should employ gardeners because i'm sick off weeding'.

Areas have been part of Army life for decades.

As per my last bold, that why you all whinge, Shannons.

Get off camp and get a life. Elmpt is one of the few BFG posts that is left, and won't be there soon. Get out and enjoy Europe.

Feckin hell, rant over.

Edited for ranting fingers.

do us all a favour if you dont like it get a little letter from mommy and get the f out.

all you have done is rant about stuff that YOU can control?????

1. how about you get yourself a hobby there are numours clubs activities and places to go during the week???

2. you are on/close to a least 3 borders get out on road trips to see the rest of Europe, instead of the bottom of a beer glass looking at the crappy decor in shannons at weekends???

3. And i guess that you probable have never done or even watched a Regt sport, so thats why your shoping at tescos on a Wed afternoon. which either means you CANT do a sport,( cant means wont, wont means Guard room) or your a fat knacker and your idea of phizz is pulling you socks up in the morning, which in that case get on the Gate and replace one of the guys who can ???

rant over
