1 Rifles

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. Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but a throwaway comment in one of the other forums suggested that 1 Rifles were to leave their role with 3 Cdo Bde. Is this true and, if it is, what's the new role?
     
  2. Yes going to 160th Welsh Brigade. It's all over the news.
     
  3. Thanks for that, something of a shame, their role added a bracing dose of heterosexual charm to an otherwise bi-curious formation.

    As far as I'm aware no-one.
     
  5. That's a shame, I think the Army gain from having an Inf Bn with 3 Cdo X.

  7. actually no 3 CDO is already a brigade in a brigade sense. It's 16 A with lacks an infantry battalion
     
  8. 2 x Para Bn and 1 R IRISH isn't it?
     
  9. 2 x Para Bn + 1 RIR + 5 Scots + 7 Para RHA + 216 Sigs + Others = 16AA

    Nope. The new structure is (or will soon be) 2 x regular Para Bns, plus 1 x Reserve Para Bn.

    Plus of course lots of those really rather useful helicopter thingamybobs.
