URGENT advice needed

#1
Hi all,
I'm trying to catch someone out at work whom I believe to be a faker. Can someone please tell me whether Kate still issues discharged personnel a 'red book', or whatever it may be called in this day and age. And if not, when did they stop issueing it. I know that by asking for someones serial no is an indication of whether they are talking b*******, because MOD change the first few digits every few years but any help would be grately appreciated guys.

Why don't you have the bollocks to tell him to his face that you think he's a bluffing ****? Instead of trying to go on a ridiculous witch hunt.

Er, maybe because work politics has something to do with it... And never mind the fact that he is one of my direct line managers. Now, why don't I openly challenge the ****? Yer, great idea mate!!! Challenge someone, whom has been on the firm for over 10 yrs!!! Challenge him in private then? Done that matey, by asking him about his serial No, and it was that that made me sus of him. But what the **** do I know er?

Why the **** is this urgent advice?

Anyway, there is a thread on ARRSE somewhere, posted by WasMe. He left as a Warrant Officer and it took him, from what I remember, months to get hold of his red book. My own red book was littered with mistakes, but I can't be arrsed to change it because I know it will be a complete balls ache trying to get it rectified. So just because there is something up with his red book doesn't mean he's telling lies.

The red book has a serial number? I've had mine for five years and I didn't know that. Listen to the advice given thus far Millwall Ken, and give it up mate.

Don't be getting so het up then if you have to hide behind those excuses. Regardless of his position there is a way to ask and find out. Clearly you haven't got the gumption or the bollocks. Why don't you go and ask on the RAF thread, they're normally bereft of moral courage so should be able to advise you personally.

Mate, I didn't say that I've ever seen his red book. But he reckons that his serial no. began with the numbers 249 - which surely would have made him an entrant in '92-'93, NOT 89-90 when he claimed.

I'm not really sure how to even begin with this post mate. I'm speechless.

Actually, how the **** do you know what year his number correlate with? And I take it you're calling the army number a serial number... Really dude, give it up.

well it was hardly "URGENT" was it. I don't think anybody was going to die as a result of you not finding out quickly if they still issue red books.
Yep, absolutely. That will teach me to not to ask a question, when I've been down the pub. Point taken fellas, along with the slap on the chops. It won't happen again, I promise. This twat has just really winded me up with his John Wayne bollocks. Honestly, the way he talks, you'd think that he was little 'tommy atkins'.

Have you got a problem with this bloke because he's your boss? 249 would be from the period 89-90. Also it's not a serial number it's a Regimental Number. Do you think he has to prove himself to you? If a snivelling no time served civvy **** came up to me and wanted to know my Regtl details and see my red book, to prove I served, he would be told were to go.

Keep pursueing it, hopefully you'll really piss him off and end up being sacked.

There is a simple way to find out if he's bluffing - just stick your head under a large goods vehicle and let us know how you get on.
