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. So they've announced that SFSG is to cut by a sickening 66%. Is this true, and will this mean 1st battalion the parachute regiment won't be contributing troops anymore.
  2. I assume you know that SFSG comprises of a lot more than just 1 battalion of meat&veg?
  3. Shit, thats true hadn't thought about that. Would all those additional units equate to 66% though?
  4. Any source or link

  5. It's a tri service unit. I would suggest that no one will want to give up the kudos.

    Expect all sorts of rumours to fly.

  6. I wouldn't worry, by the time you're old enough to join it will be all sorted.

  7. I'm applying in 3 months. How old do you think I am?
  8. They're giving it to the STABs. When they actually recruit some. I've seen the bulk order for Animal Pak, Gatorade and North Face. Or was it Fat Face?
  9. Ah, the parachute regiment. Why not just amalgamate 3 with 1 and 2 like the green jackets did?
