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. Does anybody know what the parachute regiment initiation rites of passage include

  8. Get yourself into the AFCO, and snappy, if you really want to join the army. I might be being a little judgemental here, but from your lack of knowledge it sounds like the only reason you wanna join the paras is because they look good to you, and that's no reason at all. Do some research first. Very basic research.
     
  9. There are no initiation rites. Crap like that died out 20 years ago.
     
  10. You are feckin hilarious, talk about trying to scare the shite out of yourself before you even get to training, also why don't you ask that question in the Naffi you will get everything you need :omg: . Don't worry though Para's don't participate in naked roll mat fighting :lol:
     
  11. there are a lot of initiations in the army, most of which are no longer performed, however you will find that the paras will involve their penis's at every opertunity.

    Don't listen to Fallschirmjaeger - initiation rites still exist.

    First, a big scary man (probably with a bad moustache) will make you run around a lot, carrying large heavy things. If you pass these rites, he will then make you go up in a big noisy aircraft, and jump out of it.

    What is worse, is that you have to do this 8 times before he has had enough!

    After all of this, they will gang up on you and make you go to a shitty hot country where people shoot at you and try to blow you up.

    Terrible, I tell you, terrible!
