Material for an army presentation

Discussion in 'Officers' started by musicalmarvin, Nov 21, 2005.

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 have been asked (by my UOTC) do deliver a presentation to the University Naval Unit on the British Army - what it does, how it's structured, what it uses etc.

    I will be grateful for any help directing me towards sources for this (such as personnel numbers in Infantry, RLC, Artillery etc).

    If anyone has any good ideas for exciting content (bearing in mind that it is a 40 minute lecture), you shall have my eternal thanks.

    Yours.

  2. Tried the army main website? failing that just walk into local AFCO and be nice to the recruiting Sargeant; they'll usually bend over backwards for a break in the boredom of waiting for spotty, brainless chavs to walk through the door.

    Obviously remember to split down into Combat, Combat Support and Service Support arms, explain the concept of a battlegroup, tell 'em about the different types of inf and cav and how they come together to form the front line: armoured inf vs light role; FR vs MBT cavalry etc. Your friendly local AFCO Sgt might be able to give you some video's etc. If so you'll just be able to natter for five minutes to start, stick on the TV for 10 and ask "any questions" at the end.

    But whatever you do KEEP YOUR ARSSE UP AGAINST A WALL !!!

  4. Give the guys on the Army Presentation Team a call. You can find their number on the Army website. They have a student presentation team that give a 30 minute lecture covering all aspects of the British Army and its roles around the world.

    If you ask nicely, they may even do the presentation for you. Depending on how much of a heads up you give them.

    Any probs getting hold of a number, PM me.

    You must remember to tell them that the army keeps AIRBORNE as their inbred 'walts'. Everyone else works for a living :lol: :wink:
