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. anyone know any good tips for starting fencing in the army
  2. Have weapons shortages got that bad? !

  3. i meant fencing as a sport haha :D
  4. As suggested above have a stab (excuse the pun) at contacting the Army Fencing Union. Have a look at the British Fencing Association (you will have to take out membership to join most clubs for insurance etc...) website and see if there is a local club near you. I know several army fencers who tip up at their local clubs for practice sessions.

    I was a fencer before going TA and straight after joining the Army Fencing Union (there are a couple of us lurking on ARRSE) suffered a fencing injury that put me out for the best part of six months! Although that was actually nothing to do with the AFU.
