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 all I’m new to the site,

    I have a few questions on the Army Mariner / Seamen role within the RLC.
    1.What is the living accommodation like for a solider who is going onto phase 2 training?
    2.What is the living accommodation like for a solider who has passed phase 2 training?
    3.Daily role? Moving equipment around the UK?
    4.How often is operations?
    5.How long is operations?

    I understand that my questions may have been answered before however if there is anyone that can be helpful it would be much appreciated.

    I currently have a RYA level 2 powerboat qualification, my reason for joining is that I have a friend in boat troop 539 squadron in the royal marines and he suggested this role within the army as you can join direct.
