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. Seriously...

    I always remember ato as a small subdued (eminently proud) little word, just as subtle as the little badge.

    Now I see "ATO" everywhere and wonder if it has officially changed? And what with the badges? I cringe at the thought that ther could well be HUGE multicoloured Felix flashes/patches crossed with lightning bolts and Do or Die repartie blinding ICs around the globe.

    So what's the ish? has ato officially become ATO? or is my memory failing me?

    (and if you can... please tell me there are no US style flashes)
  2. Post nominal letters (ato) are lower case.

    The abreviation for Ammuntion Technical Officer will always be ATO :)
