The X-factor and the non-deployable

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. Just a thought that has been on my mind for the past few months.

    Should soldiers who cannot deploy on exercises or ops recieve the full X factor. As most of it is based on the fact that we deploy so much. It may also encourage some of the blaggers to think about wether their injury is in fact an injury. I am not saying all people who are downgraded are blagging, but as we all know there are some who are swinging the ledge.
  2. I know several superb soldiers who have horrendous sports injuries/exercise (on duty) injuries rule them out for years or even permanently. I too have been biffed for long periods.

    Unless you can think of a way of differentiating between the blaggers and the sincere it seems stupid to re-start such a hard fought argument.

    If you can do that, I agree, we should do.
  3. Good post, and I agree completely.
  4. Done to death here by an ETS officer as a project for CLM!

    He managed t get a few bites :oops:
  5. My appologies I didnt go back far enough through the forum :oops:.
    Considering myself reprimended for my lack of research. :roll:

    You can spot the blaggers as they are the ones who are still playing rugby/football/other sports but cant go on a steady state run.
  6. fair one, I know of a few soldiers who apparently can play football but can't do PT.
