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. Does anyone if they are dishing out anymore VEng Full or Long offers? I've heard that it has all been put on hold, but it's still plastered all over the SOinC(A) website.
     
  2. VEng won't go as it gives the Army the ability to get rid of dead wood at 7 or 12 years rather than 22 years.
     
  3. If you're looking for an offer of extended career I wouldn't hold your breath.
    In the words of my last CO - Glasgow fucked it up completely, offering it to too many so have had to put it on hold (Royal Signals Wing).
    Even the threat of career fail (not being offered it when eligible etc.) which usually makes them listen is being batted back with a resounding 'tough shit'.
    If it's brought back we will have to wait for those who got the extended service to leave - which will take years.
    V-Eng was introduced before the cuts, do we need to keep people in with extended service anymore?
     
  4. I think he is asking about the extra two years bit...

    all new crows are still getting VEng.
     
  5. And thats the reason Im voting for Obama!
