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. Hello there:

    In my previous post I asked you about military in-class courtesies. Thanks for you messages!

    Looking through my next unit in Campaign 2, which is a Student's Book for those who study military English, I found
    out that I hardly know anything about 'On A Range' language.

    Hope you saw the Jarhead , a movie based on the book written by Anthony Swofford. There is a scene which is set on a range, and one guy goes like : ''Fire, Fire, Fire ...." while his buddy's shooting.

    While you are on a range you must obey all instructions given to you by the range personnel.

    And you must fulfill all verbal commands prior , on and after the firing line. What are they?

    Thanx in advance,

  2. Do you mean Chinese on a range? Or perhaps Urdu? Certainly not English.
