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 all,
    I have to send a letter to my ACA who's a Lt. Col. Now since he's up in belfast(and im down south) should I put his rank on the envelope or just his name? is there a protocol for this sort of thing? I'm not in the army (yet).

    cheers,
    sz
     
  2. It used to be the case that all letters to mil pers at a civillian address in NI went addressed to MR so and so unless sent to a military address.
     
  3. Well this is going to the barracks, it's regarding an incident of some sort and I need it to go directly to him. basically I'm just wondering if putting his rank on an envelope and sending it up north, is it a good idea security wise or frowned upon?
     
  4. double envelope the document and put the rank on the inner envelope.
     
  5. The normal addressing method used to be
    Officer Commanding
    And then the unit name and address.
     
  6. Just address it to:

    ACA
    Name of Barracks
    Rest of Address

    Use his name and title on the letter itself, not the envelope.
     
  7. Righto, cheers lads!
     
  8. What have you done? :D
     
  9. I didnt do anything. it's what I "allegedly" saw.

    not even in the army yet and im involved in this shite :roll:
     
  10. What 'shite'?
     
  11. I think a Mars bar was involved. Are we taking bets?
     
  12. ah ill tell ye when it's sorted out. dont want to take any more chances.
     
  13. More likely it was a Snickers, I heard there was peanuts involved!!
    ....or was it sweetcorn??
