There is a lot of talk on the site at the moment about the lack of Serving/Ex-Serving folk who inhabit ARRSE. We do seem to be over-run with civilian never-served people now.


Let's see (remembering OPSEC/PERSEC) who is what here. Tell us what you do and what you have done.

I know this thread will probably get crayoned over by the usual suspects, and there will be a large amount of slagging off, but this is a serious and valid question so can we please keep this on track and civil?
Wasn't this done by one of the COs a while back??

I am ex-serving. 10 years. Although I still work very closely with the MoD, and other gov agencies in my rather tedious daily existence.
