6 Rifles - commando

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by accountant, Aug 22, 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. Does anyone know if you can do the All Arms Commando Course if you're in 6 Rifles?
     
  2. Yes. Speak to your SPSI. Which Coy are you?
     
  3. I'm in d coy, so does that mean I could. Our sister unit is one rifles
     
  4. I think you'll find 1RIFLES are no longer part of 3 Cdo Bde. You may have missed the boat (see what I did there?).


    Posted quickly, while the cat's not sat on the keyboard.
     
  5. So could I do it anyway ? Or p coy?

    Of course you can - just put your transfer papers in for a Cdo or Para roled unit.

  7. Even though we are reserves, I could still apply and do it?

    Jesus wept - there are reserve versions of the Commando course and P Coy. If you have a justification for going on them, you will be able to apply.

    6 Rifles are the reserve Bn for 1 Rifles, which will sit within 160 Bde not 3 Cdo Bde and therefore have no Cdo role or requirement to attend the Cdo course. Therefore, why would you expect your unit to pay for you to attend a course you don't need?
     
  9. Lammypie, are you by any chance an Assault Pioneer?
     
  10. No, why do you ask?
