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. I won't bore you all with the details but my unit is gash and doesn't show any signs of improving.

    Any advice on a good non infantry unit in Central / SW London?
     
  2. Check PMs mate.
     
  3. Was going to be really helpful but then I read that bit above...
     
  4. Yeh, no offence, just mot my bag anymore!

    Any more suggestions?
     
  5. You could join an Infantry unit in a non-Infantry role if you have a skill to offer - CMT, Scaley, Int etc.

    Or if you have big tits, obviously.
     
  6. Most non infantry units are gash who shy away from anything soldier like or fitness related
     
  7. yawn.......
     
  8. Not quite Central / SW London but I would recommend 144 Para Med Sqn (HQ in Hornsey).

    A Para Sqn of a regular unit in 16 Air Assault Brigade so you get the same opportunities for 'travel' & training as any of the regulars.
    You don't have to be badged RAMC (if that doesn't appeal)...Fitness, P company, Airborne etc.

    A good bunch of blokes, high percentage are ex regular airborne.
     
  9. Thanks, I've seen the list but I'm mainly looking for advice on which of them are good units that'll satisfy my enthusiam and are generally not an admin vortex!
     
  10. ..Seconded..
     
  11. He should know, having been a Scaley for some time. ( not 63, either. )
     
  12. Ah bless, BB stuck up for my local TA unit
     
  13. I'm guessing you non-inf BB, hence the bite?
     
  14. I'm guessing you're not MI...

    Clue might possibly be found in my name...
