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. Just wondering what the job role is out in afghanistan? Doesn't really give much info on the Driver / comms info sheet.

  4. Is it a good job?
     
  5. Depends if you like driving and communicating.
     
  6. If you are in Barnsley pop in to 219 Sqn or ring 01302 310772. If you can make it to Leeds 217 Tpt Sqn are running a recruiting open night 1930hrs on the 9th of June where you will get hands on with the kit and meet lads who are already qualified comms specs.

    219 are in Doncaster. Both are TA but will give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to join as TA or Regular.
