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. What wristwatch and torch did you guys get? I can't decide.

  4. ... any serious answers?
     
  5. A mega cheap casio digital watch and a AA Maglite (both in black or both in the most garish colour you can find - depends how much you like press-ups) will see you right. Remember, you want a AA Maglite because in the Army, AA Batteries are FREE. Try and get one with a removable red filter attachment.

    Now, spend the time you would have spent reading the piss taking replies to this monumentally stupid thread to read the threads on what kit you need for basic and to learn how to use the search function.
     
  6. Maglites are sooo last century darling, especially when there are all sorts of reasonably priced LED torches out there that take AA batteries.....head torches as well.

    For a cheap rugged watch I agree G Shock of some sort, then again Lorus also do some decent field type watches

  7. Aaaahhhh...of course. I forgot about a head torch...Petzl Tactica (sp?) is a good un as it's got a red filter. Only problem is that you can't go for the full CROW look and tape it to your rifle.
     
  8. Judging from the OP's avatar image, they'd probably prefer the big '6D'.
