What sort of Officer do you like/would you like?

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. I don't quite know if this should be in the general section, or the officer-specific section, but I'll post it here as it is intended just as a general bit of chat.

    The question is more of 'what sort of officers and leadership styles do you prefer' than what skills are needed, as that's a bit of a stupid question

    I guess no one has any idea.

    I guess that is not material (though it should be), but as I was told, "You can't change the organisation, you can't change the weapons, you can't change what you have senior or juniors, and so make the best of what you have!''

    That's the reality!

    Books and the ideal are for academic harangue!
  3. I like female officers with something to grab onto
  4. Like this one perhaps?

  5. Exactly :)

    Why is she smiling?

    Not allowed on parade, no matter how great the joke is or who is standing in front!
  7. It is what has just been fondled that is making them both smile. :)

    I agree though, a complete breakdown in self discipline.
  8. When I was in, I tempered harshness with severity. If it wasn't against QR's, I'd have brought back the lash.

    On Wednesday nights in the mess anyway.
