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 AM JOINING THE GUARDS IN JANUARY BUT I AM LOOKING TO GO FOR MY GREEN ASAP WHEN I GET TO MY REGIMENT. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INFO ABOUT THE AACC TESTS
     
  2. You've got enough to worry about for now...

    When you find out what DCIs are, you can get all the info you need.

    Its good to have ambition, but take care not to appear a walt when you're trying to pass your CMS(R) :oops:
     
  3. I don't think you can. As far as I'm aware there's got to be a job for you in the commando brigade before you can go on the course.
     
  4. cheers for the advice i guess i am getting ahead of myself
     
  5. 3 Commando brigade take mainly from the support arms for AACC. I did it in 94 and there were no Infantry in our intake. Mainly loggies, gunners and sigs.

    You might want to consider joining the Marines instead, if you want to be a Commando.
     
  7. If you want to do infantry stuff, and "Get your green" you may as well sack the guards, do it properly and join the Corp!!
    Lympstone in January is a sado-masochists delight
    You'll love it

  8. I want to go guards but i am looking at specialist options open to me
     
  9. Well specialising in stamping your feet and been tall is a pretty good start

    But for the proper stuff I'm afraid you are going to have to join the marines

    Don't worry they have combat clerks/chefs and allsorts and they do abit of looking smart and marching as well.

    Go on set your sights higher......

    Go on you know you want to
     
  10. Not wanting to sound waltish but is H CAV (Think it was B Squadron) still to attached 3 Commando Brigade?
     
  11. Yes, but it is not Commando trained - I did the AACC in the mid seventies as REME attached. Very good course, professional RM instructors who had 'been there and done it' and I learned a great deal from it. Hard physical, but more mental pressure (all physical tests are done at the end of 3 or 4 day exercises) - don't apply if you are afraid of heights or water!
     
  12. Fair play to the kid for having ambition but (correct me if I'm wrong) the likelihood of the ticktocks sending a sprog on an AACC to fill one of their limited places is quite remote; surely they would send an older and bolder?

    Crack on Ajay and keep aiming high, just don't get too disheartened when your A Team type plan doesn't quite come together (besides that, most RM like to take it up the sh1tter, is your ring flexible enough?)
     
  13. Try not to take to much notice of the rough types on the forum Ajay,the Royals I know are very sweet,gentle,thoughtfull,kind,considerate human beings who are a sheer joy to be with!
    The advice is good,go for the Marines and you will not regret it!!!
