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. After doing a bit of research i've managed to find these ones so far:

    Mortar Crewman
    Machine Gunner
    Anti-Tank Missile Man
    Reconnaissance Platoon
    Assault Engineers
    Combat Medical Technician
    Intelligence Section

    are there any more for officers?

  2. Those are infantry soldier specialisations, Officers will either commandtheabove platoons with exceptions or fulfill roles in battalion HQ such as Intelligence Officer, or Operations Officer
  3. You were 'thinking' about joining up in Septmember last year? Surely you would know a bit more by now. How far are you from actually filling in the application form if you don't mind me asking?

    you missed Fig 11,
  5. Well done 8O - Considering only 1 is a role that is performed by an officer (Recce Pl Comd).

    Red_Tp? Should stick to Airsofting...
  6. Also new directive from the CGS and SOinC(A) that the position of RSO will now be filled by a scaley capt as opposed to signals trained infantry capt, so you cant count that now either.

    Hence I did mention Fig 11 to Red_tripe
  8. A long way.
  9. If you want to join as an officer you may want to find out what they do... You wont get to play with most of the fun bits of kit, but you will get to manage the careers of those that do!
  10. Thats me feeling safer then.

    I'd like to direct your attention to the 'regular officer recruiting' sub-forum which you'll see at the top of the 'Officers' board. The rule there is that there are no stupid questions (well there are, but we're tolerant).
