Whos the big "G"?

#1
I've been in the terries a wee while now,
and I must say it isn't all that bad....

but one thing that has never been made to clear to me is what is all this G1, G4 stuff about?

I have heard it mentioned a couple of times in briefings etc. but never wanted to admit I was the only bloke in the room who didn't know what they meant. I think I have heard mention of everything from G1 up to G6.

Anyone care to shed some light?

G1 - Personnel
G2 - Media opps
G3 - Opps & Trg
G4 - Logistics
G5 - Welfare
G6 - Comms

I think thats how it goes. You dont really have to worry about it at Pte level. Its more for senior rank/officer type stuff.

No, not a wah. it was a real question. And obviously, if I had just been made Major I would have known what they meant.

I have in fact just been made Secretary of Defence and don't understand any of this crap.

They are a bit like the "Terriers," but their weapon of choice is a sharpened piece of chocolate, originally manufactured to resemble a citrus fruit.
I see! ... all clear now ("They're not Terries.. the're mine"!) :wink:

Maybe I have just misunderstood Billy Connollys accent by using the word "terries". But I have only heard the song "Weekend Soldier" sang by two barely human scousers who in turn had learnt the words by ear.

So, it may well be terriers :?

My apologies, now that I understand that you are a Cabinet Minister (no matter how junior) and are "responsible" for Defence I can see why you would have difficulty with the G Branch concept.

Easy mistake to make there Bazz... but canines make better singers than jocks (proof: two words "the" & "Proclaimers"... endex!)

Never mind Sir. The Big G is a cereal.

G is for ' Ground ', surprisingly enough.

The crabs have similar staff branches but theirs are prefixed with A for ' Air '. Our nautical brethren and sistren go for N.

As for J, well I could tell you but I'd have to bore you to death.....
