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. Simple, who/what age was the oldest bloke to pass P Company so far?

    (this might be a Wah)
  2. P for Prostate?
  3. TA anaesthetist in Chelmsford passed his at the ripe old age of 45. I will say however him and physical fitness are in harmony. Mad as a bag of ferrets :p

  4. Often underestimated the prostate...surely the driving force of all men!

    F*ck me 45....nails!

  5. hats off to him!
  6. Errm..Machines..
  7. I expect the oldest bloke to have passed P Company is prob dead now.

    BT. :wink:
  8. One of the managing directors of my company passed it as a 40 year old major
  9. Raises the question, does the likes of P Coy age range their passmarks ? I'm not trying in any way to take anything from these lads just curious over wheter it is

    It has nothing what so ever on me doing 9.22 on my PFT with 60 pressups at 38 and dreaming of airborne glory at all.......honest
  10. Well I'm having a crack at it this year and I'm 30. Even quit smoking last week to give meself a better chance!
    Could anyone give me a general idea of the pass/fail percentage of a typical course, I'd like an idea of what I'm in for.

    Channel 4 documentary on P Coy from the 1980s. Makes for a good watch and seeing as the course hasn't really changed since its inception the details are all still relevant.

    You can watch the following parts using the links to the right.

    A lot less 'mothering' in those days. Good times.
