Volunteer Corps?

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. From BBC Budget news....

    "The chancellor said a gap year volunteer corps would be piloted from next month"

    Any thoughts???

  2. What?

    Does he mean a "Peace Corps" or is this a way of bumping up our strength?
  3. msr

    msr LE

    Anything to stop them signing on eh?
  4. What? Would you like to re-phrase that, preferably into some semblance of English?

    I've tried to find information on this Volunteer Corps idea - but there's nothing on the internet. Google has failed me. Anyone know where to find it?

    As I'm an unemployed layabout at the moment.... ;)
  5. From HM Treasury website:
  6. That wasn't what I asked. I asked you to re-write your original statement.

    *sigh* nevermind. "College" obviously didn't do you much good.

    And as for "next month" - it depends where you go to school. Some "leaving" exams are over by mid-May.

    I know I'm a pedant.

    And the "volunteer" employment for myself was tongue in cheek - but - oh yes - a winking smiley doesn't denote that. Damn.
