3 commando bgd

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. ok so the uk will have 5 multi role brigades and 16 aa , will 3 commando brigade be kept the same like 16aa as its main body rm commandos or will it convert to multi role ?????
  2. Fairly obviously it's a component of a Dvi

  3. Very reassuring to learn that we will soon have 5 Divisions (assuming that's what he means by divion?) so all the rumours about redundancies have clearly been exaggerated.

    Not so much chocolate soldier as chocolate fire-guard. He sounds like he's fairly close to the top within Head Office.
  4. Learn some English before you post again thank you very much!
  5. sorry meant brigade not divison
  6. Chocolate starfish?

    From what I understand, after current spending cuts, future UK "divisions" will be more like light infantry battalions, with - if they are lucky - an attached platoon or two of specialists. These would comprise important backup such as:
    artillery support (a chap with a radio to the nearest US unit);
    armoured recce (two chaps wearing lots of body armour in a fast car);
    engineers (several chaps with hammers and nails);
    field barber shop (a chap with scissors and another chap with a mirror); and
    combat bath 'n shower section (chap with a hose).

    There again, thinks could be worse. For that - look at the current state of the RN....
  9. Does this mean we will be following the example set by the esteemed Provisional Irish Republican Army, where a Brigade is seven blokes muttering in a pub.
