Let's settle an argument here

#1 Post by cullen123 »

Let's settle an argument here, when paying compliments to warrant officers?
I have always braced up and addressed them as sir or ma'am, never saluted though. That has always done the job. My friend however insists warrant officers must be saluted?
I'm fairly certain I'm right. Please put this other young upstart in his place.
Cheers.

No. Commissions are saluted.
Don't know if the donkey walloppers have any funny differences though.

Only those who hold a commission from the Queen are saluted, now a RSM may like to be saluted but in all the regiments I have been in it is just a sir and a snap to attention if that is what he wants

Thanks for settling that one for me, I will of course be smug when informing my friend.
We have lots of drink fuelled discussions, and many arguments arise, so with your permission I'd like to crack the little shit off on some more points?

Ok, more questions to silence my ignorant mate.
1. When did pcoy move to catterick?
2. Previous to this, did 4 para do pcoy at aldershot?
3. What was 4 para's birth date?
4. What aircraft were used for jumps in those days at brize? I'm assuming it was brize.
5. Pcoy lasted 2 weeks? How long was jumps course in those days and what types of jumps?
I'm sure I can come up with more questions as time goes on lol
Thanks in anticipation.
