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 if I can get some advice on what the height restrictions are for joining up? I am only 5"1, :cry: Would this stop me from being a Guardsman and can you do P company but stay in the guards?

    Thanks

  2. The Grenadiers have their own Para Platoon attached to 3 PARA.
     
  3. You can join the Royal Pigmys at 5"1.
     
  4. join the RE and be a pin man, or a doorstop!
     
  5. The RSM would be soooo chuffed, sizing off for parades!
     

  6. Have you considered the circus as a performing primordial dwarf?
     
  7. 5"1 is taller than most guys in the ROLGS*.

    although youd topple over if you were allowed near a bearskin :wink: If you did P company, you would blow upwards instead of down, so im not sure about that one either.

  8. Try the cubs
     
  9. Course he would, "Thorne, off you go to the end" is a doddle!
     
  10. Are you injecting drain cleaner straight into your brain?

    Unless of course they have combined P Coy and BPC to save money.
