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 guy's want input from everyone all corps regs, I should be starting infantry soon (para reg)

  2. People like you are the hardest thing to get used to.

  3. I found being called a cock all the time a bit harsh ~ you'll get used to it
     
  4. Making bed blocks was a bit of a shocker, running around the quadrangle with the bumper above your head was a pain, but not having mummy tuck me in every night I round the worst.

  5. Everything. It's relentless.

    For me, it was blanket punishment. And being bollocked constantly from (officially) 6am til (officially) 10pm. For fucking months.

    I hated it. So will you if you've got any sense.
     
  6. Getting out of bed before 1300 is a shocker.

    And being told what to do.
     
  7. I found the morning lie-ins quite hard to get used to.

  9. And teh day (I think it's day two) that the corporals set you on fire. I didn't enjoy that much.

  12. Bloodbath!
     
  13. is the food at Catterick really that bad? are they harsh on the portions?
     
  14. A constant is that of being told, via infinite variations, that you are utterly useless, unfit to shovel shit and an utter disgrace.

    Then finally understanding that, for the moment at least, that is all too true.
