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,
    just a quick question.
    Financially speaking I cant afford to join the army dispite it ticking every box for me.

    Is the low training wage a common factor for recruiting problems and how long would I be on this wage before it bumps up to a more managable wage (above £16,000).
  2. That depends on what job your going for?
  3. What recruiting problems? The armys nearly full and will soon be reducing in size as a result of the SDSR. A quick search of these forums will reveal a lot of guys waiting up to a year for start dates. What paper do you work for?
  4. The low training wage shouldn't matter - they won't let you join if your outgoings are over £250. I had to move out my rented house in order to join.

    Edit: I'm not married, so this applied to me.
