British Army Rules
Below is a list of generic rules the British Army follows. Like all other rules, breaking these rules will result in an appropriate consequence.
- Follow the Chain of Command by carrying out the orders given to you by the Royal Military Police, your regimental command or higher ranked members. Do not contact high ranking members for minor issues. HRs will not solve every single problem you have.
- Address personnel correctly, if they are ranked below Sergeant Major, address them by their rank, followed by their name. Otherwise, address them with either “Sir” or “Ma’am”. Only salute to officers (Lieutenant+). Only salute if you are wearing a beret.
