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. Who or whats getting the chop, guess 1 Bn is being axed to create proper Bn HQ Coys/Support Coys.
     
  2. I hope that's what's happening. Overwise one subunit may be in a precarious position with 3 PWRR absorbing not 1, but 3 coys (2 Rifle, 1 HQ)
     
  3. Rifle Volunteers? Londons to the Gaaaards??
     
  4. Oh great, time to start buffing the car park and painting everything blue/red/blue.
     
  5. Blimey, after all my years - finally gone thro one of these unchanged :lol:

    No rebadging, no new unit, no retrading - so glad I left the inf@SDR
     
  6. I've already started rehersing '1..23...1!!!!' in a very loud slightly ear piercing scream, the people in my office most concerned.

    Still I won't notice them after the Guards lobotomy proceedure.

    Time to join a corps?........NAH!
     
  7. A & E to 4 RGJ, RGBW absorbed but not sure about the PWRR...back into the fold perhaps.

    So long, and thanks for all the funny slo-o-o-o-w drill!
     
  8. Id say C of the RRV is most likely going to 3PWRR, seeing how it is the same capbadge and is in the regular recuiting catchment of that regiment.
     
  9. http://www.news.mod.uk/news_headline_story.asp?newsItem_id=3044
     
  10. what about b coy rrv, who will they go to if 1 rgbw is being done away with?
     
  11. The DERR (i.e. Berkshire and Wiltshire) elements of RGBWR are being amalgamated with PWRR.

    Hence 3 PWRR/ Home Counties (Whatever) will absorb B, C and HQ coys of RRV. That's a worrying outcome, a 7 Coy Regiment, which looks awefully tempting for a cut....

    Meanwhile A and E coys go off to 7th (?) Bn of the Light Division Regiment, while the Rifle Volunteers will slot in as 6th (?) Bn
     
  12. I would just like to know if we're getting our number plate back :D
     
  13. No more rrv hurrah time to burn the roebuck .it was a gash name
    and a admin nightmare whats the point of a battalion that cant even drill
    together .bye bye jackets you wont be missed well some of your blokes
    were ok .
     
  14. They speak very highly of you... :roll:
