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 AS90, and Newcastle if i was MLRS...right?
     
  2. Wahh defector on

    MLRS sort of right, its up that way, anything North of the Thames confuses me

    AS90 depends on which regt, I'm guessing you are a Geordie and looking at either being a Welsh Gunner and live near home or a Geordie Gunner and live in the land of Bierkellers and bratties

    However you could end up a Highland Gunner and live in Wiltshire, its a funny old world.

    The only guarantee is MLRS, there are a lot more locations if you choose AS90, however why the feck do you want to live near home? Miss mummy ? Grow some, live a far away as possible and pish it every night whilst your young enough
     
  3. Oh one other option is go STA either as a Radar OP, Sound Ranger or get your running shoes on as a Special OP, that way you would be in Catterick and get the best of both worlds, live near home and still have scabs on a Thursday night
     
  4. Well WH, I don't care were i am based but i want to know before making my decision, gets me 8O!

    The radar and sound op don't have the combat side that i want to lever myself into, germany looks good, the booze looks even better :)

    Im not a geordie..

    so...

    Anyway thaks for the info, your brain had been positively picked!
     
  5. 4th Regiment - the North East Gunners have now moved to Topcliffe. So if you are looking for some pils - you will have to go donkey walloping with 3RHA or become a brummie with 26 Regt RA.

    This regiment is currently on a higher operational tempo than the close support regiments.

    If you are going there you are going to get a fair few tours under your belt.
     
  9. If you want AS90 id go 3RHA in germany
