Info on the qrl

Discussion in 'RAC' started by jaylad, Nov 25, 2009.

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'm currently going through basic training and was informed the reg I had originally planned to join was full and the only way in was to have a relative currently serving so I changed my choice to the qrl so I was wondering if there was anyone who is currently serving with the qrl that could give some info about the reg. All I can find on line is on the army website but it's not great info, also when the likelyhood of deployment would be? Any help at all would be appreciated cheers
     
  2. Middway through basic you get told that your chosen reg is full?? Sounds like bullshiite to me.

    Your career is pathed a little bit longer ahead than you'd imagine, and you attending basic normally means there is a place for you at your regt, and they would be expecting your arrival (unless you fail basic obviously).

    Something sounds a bit fishy to me.
