3 Royal Anglian

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by crow_beast, Mar 27, 2008.

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. I am thinking about joining 3 RA, has anyone got any info on the stuff they do and what to expect ?
    And do you think it is a good move ?
    I looked at the RLC on a recruiting weekend but was not really won over by what i was shown.
    Thanks alot
     
  2. The Abbreviation for them is R Anglian not RA, that's Royal Artillery
     
  3. Shoot things?
     
  4. Nice 1, any info on 3 R Anglian ? :oops:
     
  5. Iv'e seen them march like the 'cubs' on remembrance parade in Bury St Edmunds if that's any help, even my wife asked who they were, as the boys brigade were marching better!
     
  6. Hmm, i hope it gets better than that. :?
     
  7. Didn't realise 3 Royal Anglian (The Pompadours if I remember correctly) were now TA 8O

    Did a 6 month UN tour in Cyprus with them in the early 80's and they were absolutely one of the best units I have served with :D

    They have a lot of history behind them & when I was attached to them they did things the way they should be done 8)

    Go for it :)
     
  8. The Pompadours of whom I was previously a member were an option for change and disbanded. The new Battalion has not the same affiliations as the old regular battalion and are not called the Pompadours.
     
  9. Thanks for your comments, i spoke to a couple of guys i know who are ind 2 R Anglian and they all said positive things so looks like im off for it.

    As someone said its 3 R Anglian not RA that upsets us we are not Arty!

    TA infantry - the best life if you are up for a challenge and fancy seeing some sights in hot places. We have soldiers deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan and working with both Regular Bns - its not obligatory that you go but its a reality we all live with.

    If you fancy a challenge - Fill your boots shag - don't know until you try - just drop into your local TAC on the the website!

    Cheers

    P.S If we wanted to do drill we would all be in the Guards instead of a quality country regiment :)
