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. Any idea where they will come from?
     
  2. They're behind you, silly.
     
  3. Remaining troops in Iraq and a TA call-up
     
  4. Im not sure, but Im guessing the Army....or could be the RAF or Navy/Marines


    Does that help?
     
  5. The OTCs are going to be made deployable.
     
  6. Ord_Sgt

    Ord_Sgt RIP

    Theres nothing on the wires, have you got a link?
     
  7. Was that promised before, during or after the hero's recent triumphant visit to pose with the troops in Afghanistan?
     
  8. At a guess they will come from 12 Mech who were supposed to deploy to Iraq this year. Reference what the Government said about not simply shifting troops from Iraq to Afghanistan.........
     
  9. Saw something in the Telegraph today about a speed-up of TA rct training. Maybe they will be straight out of basic into Afghan; Stalingrad style.
     
  10. Do you think it might be the PM trying to shift some Gurkhas out of the country before it all turns nasty.
