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. I was asked a question by my brother whom is just going througth his basic training with reme ta, he is already a qualified mechanic in civvy street, but has just finished his tafs 2, iam i right in saying he wont get deployed until he has at been accessed after tafs 3 completed and his unit has estabilished his abilitys as a vm?

  2. Thats normally the case once he has done his class three, then he can stand a chance of getting called up, however in most case they actually ask the unit for 'volunteers' unless his trade is specifically required urgently.
  3. On a related note: How about infantry? Could you volunteer for an Op Tour after doing CIC at Catterick?
  4. He's only a VM and they're ten a penny. If he voluntered, he'd be off. Otherwise, he's probably quite safe.

    StabTiffy is quite correct - no chance of sand in his boots unless he wants it. Some possibility mid- next year, but not very much even then.
