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. why is it that so much emphasis is put on 2 of the ITD's (ITD1-WHT and APWT and ITD2 BPFA and BCFT), and little else on the other 11 that are all meant to be great value.
    it is amazing how many people contact me to enter them on UNICOM, to say they have completed NBC, BCAD, Recognition etc. surely in order to be a good soldier there must be more than being able to run a bit and shoot.
    the main area for this is the fact that it is always the senior level that want this to happen, and every time an ITD package is run it is always the same faces. How many times does a soldier need to do health trg in 1 year!!!!
    So to all you seniors out there who whinge about the standard of fitness and weapon handling, make sure you can read a map, carry out NBC drills, and recognise a Challenger 2 before apr 1st.

    If you want a serious answer to that question, I suggest you pass your Basic Clerk's Course first before you get onto tougher subjects like Map Reading.
