"Performance Appraisals"


British military write EPRs and officer fitness reports too. The form used for Royal Navy and Royal Marines fitness reports is the S206. The following are actual comments taken from people's "206's".

- His men would follow him anywhere, but only out of curiosity.

- I would not breed from the officer.

- This officer is really not so much of as a has-been, but more of a definitely won't be.

- When this officer opens her mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there.

- He has carried out each and every one of his duties to his entire satisfaction.

- He would be out of his depth in a car park puddle.

- Technically sound, but socially impossible.

- This officer reminds me very much of a gyroscope - always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere at all.

- This young lady has delusions of adequacy.

- When he joined my ship, this officer was something of a granny; since then he has aged considerably.

- I wish this officer would understand that nought is a mark.

- This medical officer has used my ship to carry his genitals from port to port, and my officers to carry him from bar to bar.

- Since my last report, he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig.

- She set low personal standards and then consistently fails.

- He has the wisdom of youth, and the energy of old age.

- This officer should go far - and the sooner he starts, the better.

- In my opinion this pilot should not be authorized to fly below 250 feet.
