Basha building

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by zippy483, Jun 17, 2005.

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. Right chaps for want of being slated, I am about to teach cadets the fine art of basha building and would like a refresher if you don't mind (I spent all of my regular career living on the back decks of an ARRV so am obviosly a little rusty).

    Going to cover a couple of types ridge and lean to mainly but would like a few pointers on personal kit placement within the shelter (i.e does your bergan and webbing go at your feet or your head or do you place it wherever it's convenient, if 2 people occupy do you lie head to toe or both heads to the opening etc.)

    Cheers for your help in advance

    if you are going for the 'by the book' version then it should be a lean-to type, facing out from the nice triangular harbour area. Bergens and webbing should be at the open end and both people should be facing out.

    If you are going for the comfey version, get a 9x9, a fold up bed and a paraffin stove...;)

    But then again, it's been a good few years since I did either....;)
