    Half Warrants

    Isn't it about time we had WO2s? The navy introduced the WO2 rank last year. so why is the RAF dragging its feet?

    It's about time Flight Sergeants were recognised for the work they do!!

      The same level of work as an army half-warrant!

        Sod the WO's, they can look after themselves.

        Its about time that we had a proper rank between SAC and Cpl open to all trades, so that you don't get the farcical situation whereby an Army L/Cpl who has been in about 2 minutes is telling a 10 year SAC what to do.

        The Army just don't seem to realise that on the whole the RAF gives an SAC a lot more responsibility than the Army gives a L/Cpl.

        Yes I know responsibility isn't rank but shouldn't they go together, especially in this increasingly Tri-service (Army run) environment?

            AND, the RAF also needs to realise that medics and ATC shouldn't be gettin' their tapes after 2 minutes. Yes I'm bitter and fcuk anyone from those trades who argues.

            I've gotta go through an extra rank, so should they (not suggesting they should have J/T's of course, that's too good for them!), or at least have promotion delayed. I loathe the thought of some **** wet through Charlie Papa Lima of a lesser trade who's been in for no time givin' me grief.

            The only redeeming fact is that I'm probably on more dosh than their wobblies!!!

              2 things if I may?

              1. What the fook is a half warrant? A WO2 is a full warrant officer, there seems to be some confusion in the RAF about rank & appointments (not for the doc's before a smart arse pipes up).

              2. A J/T is mumbling about rank?! You get paid more than the jumped up ranks your moaning about, and most techies don't acknowledge rank outside their own trade anyway.

              So whats this thread about, army ranks, or the RAF's standing against army ranks?

                    looked over again?

                    sounds like the promotion board forgot to put grumpyoldflight near the top of their list...

                    personally as a happy-go-lucky and not-so-old flight I don't want to be a WO2 instead...or for that matter a WO1...and as for flight seargeants doing a lot of work...per-lease

I didnt even get offered my tapes before I left after 12 years and the last I heard they were giving tapes to any TG9 SAC who could shave (and yes that does include some of the females !!) .. and a lot of the guys I knew who got promoted I wouldnt trust with a with a tv remote control !!

                              A lesser trade? May I take this opportunity to bow in front of you!

                              Promotion does indeed suck in TG9 but thats what happens when the powers that be "have a really good idea" that may get them a promotion. Oops did I say may? I meant did get him a promotion.
