Interesting comments on Reserve forces

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by ssupersixfour, May 25, 2007.

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. If you download 'Sitrep 2107' from here and have a listen to BFBS's weekly Sitrep programme when you get to about 20 mins 30 secs in there's a 5 min slot about some of the issues facing Reserves at the moment: many of the comments echoing what we often read on here.

    The whole programme is 30 mins long and is quite interesting in a background-while-you-do-something-else sort of way.

  2. For those of you that can't be ARRSEd to wait 20'30" here is a rough transcript:

    "Sitrep is BFBS Radio 2's weekly defence magazine. Presented by Christopher Lee, it offers strategic insight into the world's defence and geopolitical issues.

    Sitrep airs every Thursday, live on BFBS Radio 2, 4.30pm UK time."


  3. TA strength as at last week = 30,750
  4. I wonder if I'm included in that 30,750 figure...

    I retired from the Regs on 31 Mar 07. Been to see my new TA unit on 24 Feb 07 and been verbally accepted but still waiting on APC/DVA paperwork/clearance!!!!!

    I'm starting to wonder if it is worth doing this TA thing at all!

  5. Ah well, it's up from 6 months ago. Hang on in there, you too could be on Herrick shortly.
  6.,.Its embarrassing. Bit like watching a corny shitty film at the moment.Minus the happy ending! :)

    Bull**** baffles mind's.
