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. Am currently looking at transferring to 395 Air Despatch.Does anyone on here work in that troop?
    Bit of info from anyone in the know about said troop,courses etc.
    Much appreciated
     
  2. Give them a ring: 01249 890898.
     
  3. Am going down there tonight to have a chat with a SSM.Just wanted to hear from any blokes from the shop floor so to speak.
     
  4. Apologies in advance if this is a numpty question ... I've tried exercising my Google-Fu and can't find the answer.

    Is 395 AD Tp part of 47 AD Sqn? I ask because over here (Oz), 8 AD Tp is one of the AD troops of 176 AD Sqn at RAAF Richmond. Just wondered how things work at the sub-unit level .... is there the same Reg - TA animosity and aggro we have here between ARA & ARes?

    Looks like the TA blokes at 395 are getting some good work. Pretty envious! The trade has been kicked in the nuts here in Aus, RAAF won't allow ADs to manually dispatch any more, and there are no deployment opportunities for the AD trade.
