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. Does anybody know a link to the standards required for the BPFA and various age groups?
  2. A 9 min 30 run and 50 pressups and 50 situps covers most eventualities. (Could be 45 pressups and 55 situps though).

    If you tell me what ages you're interested in I'll look 'em up, as I'm chronically underemployed at the moment!  8)

  4. I'm actually asking for an ex US Marine I'm working with at the minute.
    He's 46 and interested in how he'd score on the British test. He's quite a fit bloke. and is looking at getting into the 300 club for his age group.
    Can you help out Paolo?
  5. Sorry, Paoli

  9. Yeah right - old blokes (well blokes as old as me) used to do a BFT in DMS boots, puttees (who remembers the sight of blokes leggin' it down the road with brown streamers waving from each ankle?), lightweights AND it was a real test - not like the p*ss easy ASSESSMENT it is today !! ::)
