1 RTR few Qs

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?


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.
Hahaha good man, its not scottish people who piss me off infact I get on well with them and scousers in general but the scouser chavs and idiots who think they are hard...that will be a big challenge for me not to snap :evil: :evil:

I know we have them everyware but they are a so much more annoying!
Yeah we have alot here too, just takes someone to give em a good smack and they usually back down hahahaha.

Starting the app this month but wont be going to phase 1 unitl April 2010 when they get more spots open up :(. But at least I can get the medical and selection out of the way before hand and be all ready for April.
ok cool mate, well i do phase 1 in january 2010 (junior entry) for 42 weeks so il probably start phase 2 in dorset round about same time as you lol
Sounds good mate, we'll probabily meet sometime down the line. If you see someone in black Coveralls with the tag 'Dooley' come over and give me a kick lol.
mate...you need to define clearly what you mean by Scouse Chavs.....most of 1RTR will assume you mean them and they will probably read this. They will be awaiting your arrival in 1RTR I suspect!!

You just snap me ol matey and I suspect you will have a CR2 trackpin stuck somewhere. I will give my mate in A Sqn a bell tomorrow to look out for you...DOOLEY name tag on the Black Overalls is it!
Guys, you are joining the bloody Army, not some kiddy social club. All that crap gets left behind at the front gates and you're all the same. Don't go making judgements before you even start!
