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. Hi,

    I've been looking around the website trying to find out what exactly JPA is, what's it's purpose is in the Army and how long it's been in operation?

    Could someone please help me with it?

    I'm having a few problems with them myself.

    Why are you describing Mrs B&T Mk 1?
  11. Surely anyone even remotely affiliated with the Armed forces is aware of what JPA is, even if they have no fooking clue how that magic box in the office works!
  12. Well I've been using it for quite a while now and I still don't know what it is.

    Or why we have it.
  13. JPA. Just Plain Arrse. It is a terminalogy used in the forces to describe a bone job or bone system. Or a bone question to that fact.

    The Nam had FUBAR, we have JPA!!
  14. You could always phone them up for 20 mins and then let them tell you to put an ISupport thing in, which is always dealt with within 10 working days.

    10 working days? I doubt anyone of the Tiger Team have done 10 working days in their lives. They are probably sat up in Glasgow/Delhi playing Tetris.
  15. a bad works person always blames there tools
