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. Or not as the case is ...

    H&S has gone too far now .. cant even go for a spot of PT if the PTI hasnt turned up ... fecking livid ...

    Sorry just had to get that off my chest ...

    You can always take part in voluntary sports ;)
  3. I would venture that training time is generally too precious to be spent on PT aside from any PFT/CFT required for MATTS etc.

    Physical fitness of the TA soldier is something he needs to address in his own time, certainly under current budgetary constraints.
  4. thats was my suggestion till someone said nope H&S .. and as said person was several ranks above me so a "feck off fat knacker" was even an option for reply ..

    Bloody annoying bollocked if you do ... bollocked if you dont ...
  5. Appricate that, however as no other useful training was planned .... at least a spot of PT would have been better than having several people not having a clue what to do next ... and as our group only seem to have the pft to do for MATTS made sense to me at least ..
  6. Similar to regulars on Wed afternoons?
  7. Why not do the ETL course? Useful to have a few people in a location with that qualification.
  8. What is the ETL?

    It is a specialist course for TA Corps units, sponsored by Greggs.

  13. So you can do PT in Army time sans PTI?

    Yes. If you are stood down by the chain of command at the end of training on a Saturday and decide to go for a run, that is PT in army time sans PTI.

    Conducting organised, mandatory PT without a PTI/ETL present is not acceptable. Neither is telling the blokes that you have no training planned for their 2 hours of attendance on a training night but suggesting that they can go off for a run/play 5 a side if they want to.
  15. Yes with an ETL.
