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. Hi,

    Does anyone know whether Royal Signal officers spend much time on FOB when deployed in Afghanistan. If so, do they ever go out on patrols or are they based in the HQ most of the time?

    I want to know what/where an RS officer will spend most of his time when deployed.


  2. I'm Royal Signals (Rank of Siggy) and I was deployed to the PBs in the Nahr-E-Saraj District and the highest rank I have ever seen Royal Signals wise was a Sgt and he didn't go out on the ground. Mosty Siggy/LCpl. From What I have seen anyway.
  3. Where would the officers spend most of their time then?
  4. Are you asking about officers in the now defunct Royal Scots (RS) or in the Royal Corps of Signals (RSignals)?

    And we're NOT defunct, just temporarily merged with the KOSB to form the The Royal Scots Borderers, 1st Bn The Royal Regiment of Scotland. :thumright:

    Kept seniority in the Line as well :)

  7. In their grot with granny porn!?
  8. Wherever their troop HQ happens to be. As opposed to in the UK / Germany, where an honest answer would be "between the rugby pitch, the sailing club and the Mess Snug Bar".

  9. Well this is the Royal Signals section, and i clearly state royal signal officers in my post.
  10. probably in one of the larger camps like bastion or lash. somewhere comfy
  11. You'll spend your time where you're told to spend your ******* time and if you ask any more bone questions you'll get to spend some more time at that ******* place. Does that answer your question? Hope this helps
  12. Basically Bastion and Lash.
  13. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwww.
