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. Being in the Navy and only having delt with the RLC a few times i find it hard to believe they are not above 15%.
  2. I'm in the RLC and am surprised too. I know some trades are way above that. Some of our home grown chavs should fecking man up, stop gobbing off and get down the recruiting office - too many talk the talk........

    True in significant proportions, having and overall high proportion of NBC (Non British Componant (not F&C any more :roll: )) soldiers alters the dynamic of the military, however, i've got approx 10% in unit and would happily have more, to a man they're very good.
  3. I know a couple of RSM's who'd disagree with you on that.
  4. I'm sure they would and i'm sure that it's not all plain sailing with the NBC. However, all the G1 issues i've had have been with the Brit contingent - taking nothing away from the home grown - there are plenty of exceptional troops.
