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 how much time off we get at chrimbo???

    i start 5th nov. so after the 6 week period when your allowed to go off site.. am guessin i'll have a bit longer than a long weekend..?

  2. to be honest mate, just go in expecting not to be home for crhistmas then if you do get leave it will be a big bonus, otherwise you make plans for christmas and you dont get leave, that will do some damage to your moral and you wont want that.
  3. yeah thats what i'm expectin mate

    just got family moanin at me when i dont know what im doin yet!
  4. Haha, yeah, same for me kinda. I'm not too fussed about it, Chrimbo is not my thing, but parents are like "surely you get some time off?!"
  5. Every Unit will be different depending on committments or training.

    I still think Christmas should be about March or April as there's not so many people in the shops then.

  6. Have you been for your brief yet?
    I went for mine recently and got a booklet about basic training and it has somes dates in there, it says ive got 2 weeks over christmas, im not banking on it though just in case!
    Tell your family that its highly unlikely that you will be home for christmas, they wont be as dissapointed if you dont get it that way mate.
  7. had my brief ages ago mate

    just gotta do my allegiance now in 2 weeks

    off to catterick 5th nov.
  8. You'll probably be stuck on Guard Duty, matey raising and lowering the barrier and watching all your mates bugger off on crimbo leave... :lol:
  9. 22nd december - 7th jan

    not bad :)
  10. For fcuks sake - don't go home, big it up, get drunk & get locked up on Christmas Grant.

    It will make the rest of your training very difficult.

    Oh - expect a slow workup to the fitness when you get back to camp. NOT!
  11. I got home last christmas 17dec-02 jan. Quite good, was at bassingbourn at the time.
