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. Has anyone seen the dates for Martial Merlin this year yet ?

    I heard it was March but is there a fixed date yet ?

    Bugger ! Not the thread I was hoping for.

    I thought it said Marital Merlin.
  3. Me too, I thought it was a wild west thread as in Marshal Merlin.

  5. Ha, their BCS is surprisingly absent again (ok in non officer speak - English - that'd be 15 Bde's Sig Sqn).

    Whats LBCB? is that LECB spelt wrongly
  6. LBCB isn't LECB spelt wrongly, it's LBCB spelt correctly!!
  7. So what is it then?

  8. Well a merlin is a kind of Big Chopper :slow:
  9. Nothing so exciting. 15(NE) Bde annual patrols competition.
  10. Oh God.....Not that bollacks again.....
  11. How did everybody get on and how did they find it?
  12. Well 34 got a bronze again, Yorkshire regt got a Silve and were .5 of a point off Gold. Hats off to the organizers, never thought I'd be starting the day on the DCCT range, moving to the first location in a CVRT then getting a cabbe in a Lynx. Excellent weekend, will I do it again ?



    Two patrols were still lost when we left the exercise ware, I believe one had been found bivvying up for the night, as far as I know onlya handful of minor injurys. Hell I even got to abseil.

    101 RA got Silver, despite getting a little directionally challenged at one point (with an impromptu river crossing).

    Good laugh! (now I've had some sleep and stopped hallucinating)
    Gutted that mist / fog had our Lynx subbed with a Bedecopter.

  14. Glad to hear you guys enjoyed it! I was watchkeeping for my sins. Everyone got back ok, bar 1 sprained ankle. 3 teams didn't finish, but no injuries other than geographical embarassment (I think!).
    Good to hear who got what medals, I only caught the tail end of how many medals were awarded, I was wondering!
    Hats off to all who competed, well done guys!
  15. Injury wise we were very lucky, one member of our team (ahem) went arrse over tit down a scree slope, managed to butt stroke themselves with the LSW too
