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've got my BARB test on thursday, bloody nervous bout it! Im told it's 3-6 months after completion of the test that you start basic so I doubt I will be going in september, whens the next intake? It's doing my head in how long this all takes I just want to get in there and be a part of it! btw i've applied for general fitter in the royal engineers, that fails I am hoping to get in as an armoured engineer!
  2. 3-6 months???? sure you heard it right
    I have had a guy in Basic within 6 weeks never mind six months
  3. Wow really that fast?! The 3-6 months is just what I gathered off this site. Thanks for that :D
  4. i thought the careers office said that the whole process of joining is 3-6 months
  5. It's took me 5 months to get from BARB to Basic. I'm going Tanks, I thought that it takes even longer if you're going for a tech trade.
