Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I m going to join in the next month or so, i ve been in before about 10 years ago, i ve heard off a couple of mates that for the phase 1 training there are camps you can go on for like 2-3 weeks instead of doing your 9 weekends, is this the case? If so are there quite a few of them or do they come up once a year?

    I m wanting to get through my training ASAP, obviously there is CIC after that, but what other courses could i do after that? Can you go as many as you like or is it all rationed still?

    Oh yeah and what jobs will i be able to do at an inf HQ company, please dont say stores, AGC or loggies as i m wanting to be a gimpy gunner.

    Cheers guys.
  2. If you are in the Midlands there is always the Midlands Challenge.
  3. You sure you've been in before? I don't know which Infantry Unit your applying to, but at our place, we have a specific support coy broken down into an SF Platoon, Mortars and Javelin. So, as far as I know, you'll not be tocuhing a GPMG at HQ Coy. I wait out to be proven wrong...

  4. give a clue as to your location and unit you're looking at.
