Often abbreviated to Cpl. A 'Full Screw' normally, commands a section. He or she is usually found on exercise being shouted at by a subaltern who has no idea why the shouting occurs.

  • Will receive his orders at the Pl Comd O Group.
  • Will prepare and deliver said orders to his section who will have no idea what he is on about.
  • Will generally resort to simple commands e.g. 'Follow me!'

Generally regarded as being the best rank to be: high enough to have authority and delegate the bone jobs, but low enough to still be at the coal face having all the fun before you become an adult!

Also a incredibly perverted American ARRSE User who is part of 'The Other Two'.

See also section commander.
