Seeing off a Rekrut (Рекрут Russia, by: Repin 1879)]][[|
German Rekruts (on outpost; de: Alarmposten)]]
Rekrut (en: recruit) is the designation of a military appointment, position or status in German-speaking countries that characterizes newly recruited or sought personnel during the initial period of the basic military training. However, in some countries, e.g. Austria and Switzerland, Rekrut might be the lowest rank of enlisted men, comparable to NATO OR-1.
- The abbreviation "OR" stands for "Other Ranks / fr: sous-officiers et militaires du rang / ru:другие ранги, кроме офицероф"↩
