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. Bonjour.

    Can anyone tell me if I can change my Army application to a Navy one? I've got my date for ADSC and just come off a Chosen Man 2 course. I've decided I want to join the Navy instead after much mind wrangling. Don't care if I have to start right back at square one.
  2. Yes, you havent comitted yet so the army careers cant really do anything. Or just mong it at selection and fail it.
  3. You haven't signed up yet, so yes. Tell your recruiter, they'll cancel the application. Quite sure you'll have a new application process to go through.
  4. Yes - it does require a sex change though. Your buster browns will be removed and your 'biffin bridge' will be replaced with an axe wound.
  5. At least join the French Navy, they seem to have a carrier or two. Plus they're really good at waving.

  6. Thanks guys couldn't find this info anywhere. Can they not just pass over my medical forms though? That took so bloody long to get over and done with!
  7. You do realise that there's a waiting list to join the RN?

    2/3 years plus, in a lot of cases.
  8. I can wait
  9. 2-3 years is a damn long time, I'd think about the many downsides to having such a long time frame of keeping your life on hold. May I ask what made you realise you wanted to go Navy instead of Army?
  10. Why bother posting? - Disco
