Highest Ranking Men in the British Armoured Forces

Post by Ged Preston » Thu Nov 20, 2008 12:30 pm

should be given this God given right.

To be where he should`nt be.

You are rough, no refinment.

Check on this most seriously Bob_h (not joking Bob or Brian).

The Trooper is the highest Rank in the whole British Army.

And thats a Fact :D :lol: :wink:

Ged Preston.

I call you Sir, and you call other Captains Captain.


But when a Trooper is confronted by a Private or a Sapper, who do you think or Guardsmen is the most Senior of the BattleGroups.

Listen :oops: :oops: :x yes now we`re clicking it is the Briitish Trooper :lol:
Officer Commanding 67/15 intake at Catterick you lot are a bloody shambles a complete waste of Government money.

To add to that if killed in action and returned to the UK by air if there were others from different units on the same flight
they should be unloaded in seniority of Line
ie RN personel first then Army in order of line then RAF

Hi Shep
as far as I was concerned and regardless of rank the most important person in the British Army was Bob Renshaw in his lovely 1 tonner full of goodies !!! and coming in a close second was freaks Parkinson. Because without a compo sausage buttie and a Herforder for breakfast on Soltau nothing on my waggon ever got done! :lol:

Hi Wanny
lot to be said and not gonna argue
And looking back the yellow suitcase was one of the best motivators tp get the day going
And something the infantry never had a chance to consume to the average Hawk
a dry exercise meant it didnt rain

That would be Kings Troop RHA.
The only time I remember it stopping raining was when we got Exercise Ends all of a sudden the sun would come out. Soltau its a funny old place.
