To write or not to write...

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. My CO, lawd bless 'a, recently sent me a letter congratulating me on not fecking up on a course, to which I was very much appreciative.


    I'm not sure as to the protocol of whether I should write back. I know it would be polite to acknowledge the letter, but I'm not sure if I'll get an earful of RSM for wasting the esteemed Lt Col's time.

    Any helpful thoughts?

    Or am I just being daft?
  2. Do not write back.

    Merely thank him personally if/when you next see him.

    Otherwise you'll end up going down the road of thanking people for thanks... ;)

    Red pen it and send it back, it's the only way they'll learn.
  4. circle all spelling mistakes, grade and return!
  5. Put a nice gold star on it with the words " Well done" in nice red penmanship
