Numbers in a.............?

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by exmoor, Sep 6, 2009.

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'm quiet new to the military side of things & was wondering the number levels in the following are:
    Troop
    Company
    Battalion
    Regiment
    Corps
     
  2. 5, 7, 9, 8 and 5 Respectively

    Hope this helps :wink:
     
  3. Would I be correct in declaring "WAH"?
     
  4. NO I think you will find that I am factually correct

    And just because he’s new doesn’t mean he can’t be as noisy as he wants :wink:

    The chaps who are in a Squadron must feel awfully left out.
     
  6. I'm only after as i may be working in the future with the Army.
    And it would look better if i knew what the numbers were etc.
    And without throwing my teddy out the pram thought i would be easier finding it out here! 8O
     
  7. No please do throw your teddy, you are bound to get an answer then :roll:

    If you want an answer to a military question why come on a site infested with civvies :wink:

    Or you could just google ‘size of military formations’ (go on, be bold :D ) and find out that you may get a generic answer, however, that’s all it is generic, as a Sapper, Gunner, Cav or Air Corps Sqn will be completely different in size for example
     
  8. Cheers for that!
    wikipedia is my friend.
    Thanks for all the quick replies!!!! :lol:

    without trying to be flippant, it depends!
     
  10. Oh well done Trigger :D
     
  11. However, the answer is still 5, 7, 9, 8 and 5 Respectively though

    Oh and remember Wikipedia is a user edited website so I wouldn’t believe everything you see on there :wink:
     
  12. It's 42.
     
  13. Sorry, What was the question?
