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. Hi

    I was wondering on average how many soldiers were in each battalion?

    actual scots you mean?

    around 150 in each one. the rest are nepali, ugandan and fijian, english or any other available ethnic commonwealth types.

  3. What, they're that poorly recruited in Scottish TA units they are being allowed to recruit from abroad :-?

    I had my Wah shield up and fingers crossed behind my back by the way :)
  4. Just enough to man their AS90s.
  5. lol.

    No, the full battalion.

    I was also hoping to ask a few questions about cbeing called up in an emergency. Is it realistic to be asked to report to your company HQ's at short notice, say a few hours?

    Do they have a way of contacting you, i.e. pagers?

    I need to know if it would be realistic to call up the TA battalions at short notice and rush them to an emergency while the regular army units were being mobilised?

    If so, part of a book I'm writing, was to have these 2 battalions deployed.


  6. I'll PM you on this one.
