Off go the Royal Engineers

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. msr

    msr LE

  2. just to clarify slightly MSR....

    off go the third wave of RE TA....

    there have been over a hundred TA  sappers from the smallest RE regiment in the gulf since March as individual augmentees, they took part in the war and are staying out there till July.

    The second batch came from EOD and formed a Tp (commanded by a TA Troopy to the best of my knowledge) in a regular Sqn .

    this is merely the third wave and without wishing to denigrate their contribution in any way, 10 out of a whole regiment is not exactly massive news (when ten from a Tp have previously been sent...)

    but good luck anyway chaps and chapesses
