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:

    Is there any way an organisation can check the validity of a veteran?


  2. Yeah JPAC, or my boot...
  3. Serious Answer - Try JPAC, or SPVA, or ask for supporting discharge docs..

    Now NAAFI Answer - A beer drinking competition and who canpull the foulest looking munter. If he returns with Anthony Worral Thompson he's ex services
  4. What dictates....'Veteran'...Age...Length of Service...Discharge Date?
    Serious question.
  5. Any one who has previously served in the armed forces regardless of length of service (or words to that effect).

    It's hard to get excited about an achievement one shares with Mike Golden.
  10. As far as I know, if he has a number and only does one day he is as much a veteran (in MOD etc eyes)as a 22 year man.

    As far as I'm concerned he should get jack shit.

    Dave, ping me the details
  13. Well I know a lad called, Jack, if you require me to ask him to shit in a box and send it to said "Veterans" (Please note the commas are for those that never really made out of training), please let me know. I'm sure there are other Jacks out there that would love to assist the ex-service community.

    We could start a new charity "Jack shit for veterans", I suppose the Govt already does it on a theory level, we could be more of a practical group.

  14. No fatties allowed to be veterans though? ;)
