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. What's the situation with 24 Commando? Can you go straight into the Regiment after basic or do you have to enlist with the RE or REME first?
     
  2. The booties are part of the Navy, 24 Cdo Engineer is Army; you cannot go straight from one to the other without signing off and on again as a crow. 24 is RE by the way; you join the Army, go RE, do AACC.

    After a couple of years as a GD Mne you would be able to specialise within the Corps; Heavy Weapons, M&AW, Viking, FPGRM etc. All of this is on the internet, if you just look for it.

    Prior Planning and Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance is what your sig block should say.
     
  3. Nah, says it all really.
     
  4. Thanks for the informative response. I was considering just going in as an engineer not as an infanteer. My civvy qualifications could be well used in the Engineer regiments and I could also gain some more hands on experience for later life. Still want to be an RM but it's my brain against my heart and I think the more intelligent choice would be with the RE's and then going through the commando training at a later stage.

    The one I'm using is also used and is the 7 p's. I know your version is used aswell but that would be the 2 P's the A and the 5 P's.
     

  5. or 4 P's a U and 2 P's??????
     
  6. ARRSE wouldn't let me have the 5th. ?????
