1 Battalion

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My son is a reccy mech in 1 Batt - and will be on his way to Catterick very soon leaving Germany behind him. Does anyone know when they are next due on tour somewhere as he doesnt fancy rotting around Catterick for too long. As his Dad I am happy for him to be there, but its not what he really joined up for.

    Any thoughts anyone or would it be classified info or the like?
  2. Ask your son to ask his chain of command, they'll tell him all he needs to know.
  3. They have just returned sfrom a tour so are not in the front of the queue to go back (currently). He will get plenty opportunities to deploy as we have lots of downgraded Rec Mechs and are short to start with!
  4. The good news is that they are now settled into the spanking new living and technical accomodation in Catterick.
    The bad news is that they hope to be open for normal business by mid Jan.
    Here's hoping it is Jan 09!!
  5. Like just coming off tour is any hinderance to going straight back out.

    1 Fd Coy were on the same tour (H7), guess where they are going next year? Oh and they are supposed to move from Bordon to Tidders beforehand.
