1 RTR few Qs

Discussion in 'RAC' started by Dooley, Oct 8, 2009.

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. Well I have a few more questions now that my first choise RTR are back on the table for me :).

    These are pritty basic questions and maybe a bit stupid but I am going to ask them anyway.

    1 RTR says it mainly recruits from scotland and north west (e.g. Liverpool) is there a overwelming number of these in the regiment? I was just wondering how the regiment is made up

    Also I read someware that part of 1 RTR combines to form the Combined Arms Training Centre, what does this mean? do 1 RTR still get alot of times on the tanks nowdays and deployments?


  2. The Regiment traditionally recruits from Liverpool and the West of Scotland, but has now begun recruiting nationally.

    There are many more scousers than jocks nowadays at the lower ranks, and about 50:50 in the Sergeants' mess.

    A Sqn is part of the Land Warfare Center Battlegroup which does firepower demos, plays enemy on exercises and provides crews for training future tank commanders. You will go there first and get more tank time than any other regiment.

    RHQ and a squadron just got back from Iraq and another squadron are about to go to Afghanistan.
  3. Cheers for that mate, looks like i'll have to suck it up and endure them then :p also what do you mean Jocks?

  4. Scottish people
