Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Hello

    I've been tasked to give my company a lecture on Op Herrick next drill night. Many of the company are mobilising in the next few months and the presentation is supposed to convince the unsure soldiers that Herrick is a good thing. Its full of all the normal stuff; why we are there, what we are doing, what kit we'll have, possible tasks, what the country and people are like etc etc. Most of the guys have already been there, and the rest have heard most of this stuff before.

    In order to make my lecture more interesting I was wondering if anyone could provide some funny stories that occured when out in Afghanistan, especially if the happened to TA soldiers. Aswell as any inside knowledge that would help troops in Bastion.

    Many Thanks.

    Have you been yourself? Why are you trying to sell the tour / place to people who have already been?

  3. Which unit are you?

    Also be careful about using second hand stories as they always sound crap, if some guys have been before and you haven't you'll end up being put down by them "What would you know you've never been there" etc
