Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone shine a light on the rumour that a New Battery is to be form in 16 Regt......? if so do you know the title it will take?
     
  2. Careless talk costs lives!!
     
  3. It'll probably be called Olympic Battery and specialise in urban air defence.

  7. It's the HQ battery from 40 Regt RA. I forget which number it is.

    God knows why it's going there though. That's a regiment that's ripe for disbandment if I have ever seen one
     
  8. Maybe they're recharging it?
     
  9. It is taking over what is currently Japple and will man the new LEAPP kit. I can't remember what number it is but yes it is one from 40.
     
  10. If that's what you think you could not be further from the truth. You might want to take a look at what 16 actually do before coming out with crap comments.
     
  11. I don't know anything about a new battery at 16 Regt RA but I was reading that scientists at McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science have invented a new battery that will power our smartphones for 10 times longer. Now that is good news don't you think?
     
  12. Yes, Eveready. :)
     
  13. (Shows age and how out of touch he is) When did they stop being 16 AD Regt RA equipped with Rapier?
     
  14. 49 (Inkerman) Battery and God help any poor ***** who are posted to them.......planks I shit em!
     
  15. I know exactly what they do thank you very much.
