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. Can someone tell me how hard is basic training?
  2. cant be that hard
    two nco`s just sent to harrogate from my battalion as instructors are worst we have,not a ******* clue and only just scraped a pass on juniors
  3. Well you have to get up before breakfast.
  4. Spend all day running yourself ragged. Spend all evening and most of the night cleaning your house to a high standard - then start pressing all your shirts and kecks. Then polish your shoes until you can see your face in them. Then go to bed around midnight...ish - but not before setting your alarm for 5am. Get up. Have a shower and shave in cold water. A quick twenty minute run before this is optional. Clean shower to high standard. Polish boots again. Get dressed. Have a quick brekkie - you have ten minutes. Then trash everything you've spent all night preparing before spending the rest of the day in a wet field. Back to square one. Repeat for six weeks. Still interested?
  5. Yeh, sounds mega.
  6. SO your saying that the nice training staff don't bring you breakfast in bed?
  7. Anyone else having their wah senses going off at the moment?
