With regard to the RMP, what is a Special Operations Regiment?

#1
Does anyone know?

Never heard of it.

However, they are, because their ability is recognized before they leave depot - bit like a modern day Chosen Man. Given their intelligence no wonder that they should be considered as such of course.

Absinthe, if you're serving read the A2020 brief with reference to the RMP. Explains it. It is nothing to do with UKSF, for any potential big-timers.

Thank you Timble.

It's the crack team of redcaps who contribute to the safety and security of Afghanistan by charging combat troops with speeding inside Bastion.

Please keep that to yourself........

Provost Marshal said:
a new RMP Specialist Operations Unit, which groups existing, but disparate, specialised capabilities (the Service Police Crime Bureau (SPCB), the Close Protection Unit (CPU) and the Operational Support Unit (OSU)), and allows for the appropriate depth of command so that the delivery of scarce and highly skilled niche specialist capabilities, such as Cyber-Crime and covert policing, can be better managed while also interacting in the national policing landscape at home.

There are no special operations Regiments, however there are a number of Regiments and specialities that provide the skillsets for special projects. These are usually National Contingency Operations that not only involve members of the 3 Services but other UK assets.

These commitments do have operational names, depending on the particular contingency, however the operational names themselves are classified.

Perhaps you prefer the opportunity to explain to somebody's mother or wife how they were killed by some idiot driving like a lunatic. Monkeys hate traffic duty on ops it wasted their time, it's unpleasant, and it brings them into conflict with idiots.

Eloquently put BA; much more so than I would have been able (why I ignored it). And Augustus - we don't charge people with crimes/offences against Standing Orders - I think you'll find that it's your own CO that does that. But please, don't let facts get in the way of a good (if old & tiresome) story.

We had guys in BAOR who were attached to the RMP to patrol the quarter areas as a terrorist deterrent, I am sure they were termed Specials.
They were Auxilliaries.

It's the way the cnuts manage to jump to the front of the Que in the sloppo house.
When did that ever happen?

No ****** jumps the queue, heinous crime. The crab firefighters at the COB tried this, even had 'reserved' placed on some of the tables. I'm proud to say I soon got that binned.
