Does training really work in the real world

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. I was just whiling away the nightshift , looking through notes etc for my upcoming Cpls course and I started to wonder, all these drills , tla's , proper ways to do this that and the other , do they really work
    ? In the real world out in Iraq, Ireland, Falklands etc etc , were there really jnco's scraping around for model kits and carrying out the six section BD's ? or does everything go to pants and swaddling apart from stoppage drills and Chem IA drills ?
  2. You need laid down drills and procedures to follow when training so when the s"*t hits the fan for real you can react, and act to deal with the situation effectively and almost instinctively. However do people receive the correct amount of training and is it relevant? Thinking of Phase 1 CMS(R) does it prepare the "trained soldier"?
