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:

    Couldn't find the right forum, so Mods feel free to move..

    So all, what are the chances for exchange trips to other forces: Americans, Germans etc?

    Do they actually happen? What do you do? Are they long?
     
  2. 1 of our lads had an exchange with an aussie last year for 6 months...

    our bloke loved it in aus, the aussie hated it over here!

    Op LONGLOOK is probably the best known. All the Aussies I have worked with during their visit, have thoroughly enjoyed it as they get to move from sub-unit to sub-unit, visiting the best Europe has to offer. The same goes for the guys i know who have gone over there (I turned it down in favour of a TELIC tour).

    Officers are the ones who tend to get the longer exchanges such as America, canada and Germany
     
  4. oh yeah, we had an austrian officer over aswell for a few weeks last year
     
  5. 7 Sigs have a permenamt Aussie exchange OC Sqn. It is a stepping stone for their Lt Col.

    Most of the Officer exchange posts seem to be for 2 years. I dont think the powers that be 'trust' the junior/senior ranks to undertake a 2 year tour. We will probably end up ruling their Armies
