The three letter abbreviation TLAs for a soldier under sentence, a man who’s crime was so heinous that ROPs or extras are not considered to be suitable punishments. A SUS will have been awarded a term of detention by his CO to be served in either the camp or garrison guardroom, or at the MCTC.

A SUS will be found in possession of the following items:

  1. hand bumper
  2. wire wool
  3. mop
  4. starch
  5. paint brush
  6. white paint
  7. coveralls

But not in possession of the following:

  1. wages
  2. beret
  3. belt
  4. putties or twist-its
  5. laces

So despite having the most immaculate kit in the camp, he will still look like a bag of shite (but not tied in the middle)

He will always be escorted by the provo sgt and/or a member of the RP, usually at a pace of at least 130 steps to the minute, when not marking time.

On inspections or on any other occasion when he is addressed by a senior rank, a SUS will make the following report:

“SIR/STAFF, I (insert number, rank and name) AM A SOLDIER UNDER SENTENCE. I WAS AWARDED (insert number) DAYS DETENTION BY THE COMMENDING OFFICER UNDER PARAGRAPH (insert number) OF THE ARMY ACT 1955. I HAVE SERVED (insert number) DAYS AND HAVE (insert number) DAYS LEFT TO SERVE. I HAVE (no OR insert number) REQUESTS OR COMPLAINTS SIR/STAFF”.
