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. Can anyone tell me what role the above unit did during their tour of Iraq.

    The reason I am asking is that i know of a TA solider that has returned from Iraq and is getting flash backs and really quite stressed about the whole thing is genral.

    I thought that the TA were just stagging on for 6 months and not realy involved in patrols etc.

    Or is this guy just talking absolute sh#t
  2. If you can access Armynet have a look at the online feature for Alamein Company. They dealt with various incidents on the tour and perhaps some of the boys will comment on this when they return from their well earned leave!

    if memory serves, these guys were the fp coy at the Apod. I did the same on telic 6, and i know that someof our guys have had problems; it is not just stagging on.
    Our coy was lucky, but i know the guys after us and their sucessors lost vehicles to ied's and the like.
    So although i dont have personal knowledge in this case, i could be fully prepared to believe he is having flashbacks.
  9. Pretty much the same...less the escorts which we lost....we were lucky.....and I would be suprised if some did not have the odd wee drama!
