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:

  11. Did you get compulsary mobilised or is this something you put in for?
  12. Well it was compulsary mobilisation of the sort where they asked for volunteers first...

    Found out more about our role last night. Going to be joining the ARRC Spt Bn, likely as a 4th platoon within a regular coy.
  13. That should read 4th platoon within a regular RLC coy but I guess your going as Force Protection
  14. Sorry, 4th Platoon within a regular Pioneer coy, so they're almost real soldiers as opposed to blanket stackers... :lol:
  15. The Royal Pioneer Corps merged with the RCT, ACC, RAOC and elements of the Royal Engineers to form the Really Large Corps in 1993 Combat Service Support

    You can read about the Bn on this link ARRC - 1st Signal Brigade.
