Complete and Utter Noob saying hi…

Hi, currently a CI but will soon be put forward for commission, so I am both very nervous and excited about the trip to Cranwell.

Welcome to ACC.

Enjoy the experience at Cranwell.

There is a wealth of experience here regarding commission within the RAFAC. If you have questions, just ask.

Thank you very much, i am still trying to get to grips with all of the abbreviations but I suppose that will just come with time or is there a list on here somewhere?


Try RAFAC Abbreviations

Possibly slightly out of date.

Abbreviations will come.

They’re just a way of demarcating those ‘in’ and ‘out’ of the in crowd, like any jargon. Richard Holmes used to do a good talk on this. Uniform ‘fashion’ works the same way (what, you still wear a shemagh? Eugh!)

The one I like to deploy to catch out the unwary is sService (‘single service’). Useful in a CCF context…


Thank you very much that was most illuminating
