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. Anyone know of any good ta units in london?? cheers

    Yes - and some really bad ones.

    Why don't you:

    1. Use the search function, there are many threads related to the subject and/or

    2. Add some detail to your post about you and what you might like to do (or more specifically not do) to avoid the rest of us the bother of suggesting units that wouldn't suit you.
  3. 101st airborne mess tin repair (v) in Walford. Great bunch.

    London E20.

    Ok, that narrows it down a lot.

    Infantry? Specialist trade?

    Also consider that "gets regular tours" is going to rapidly become a thing of the past - you may have already missed the boat.
  7. yeah infantry or engineers. Anything thats based outside most of the time!

    I see from other psosts that you are in the RMR. Why not just stick with them in London ?
  11. 562 Transport Squadron
    TA Centre
    Hayes Bridge, Southall
    Middlesex UB1 1PN
    020 8571 5001
    i was attached to this mob on RINO REPLEN in 1997 great bunch of lads
  12. RMP, when the Herricks end you can still deploy on CP duties if you pass the course.
  13. Chances are mate you've missed the opportunity to do a tour because as far as I'm aware the there aren't any tours for TA (Infantry) units what with Afghanistan wrapping up. However it's only a matter of time till we end up in some other arm pit shithole.

    In terms of units well there's a good number of different badges in the London Regiment which I believe encompasses:

    .London Scottish
    .London Irish
    .London Fusiliers
    .Princess Of Wales Royal Regiment (PWRR)
  14. The Honourable Artillery Company are recruiting. You'll need to pass UKSF Selection though.
