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. Advise sought - deploying shortly as a reseult of a trawl and would like to know what I am entitled to, pay and welfare wise (ie, am I entitled to a MFO box?)
  2. I deployed last year and was given the option of a comfy box, probably worth checking with the unit your deploying with as to what they are doing!
  3. Have a look at armynet - https://www.armynet.mod.uk/ the TELIC link has all the details. You should get a comfy box, and the normal LSSA etc.

    There are the normal paradigm phones and internet facilities, albeit pretty limited depending where you are. There are large EFIs at Shiabah and the airport, with pizza huts and bars too if your CO allows it.

    PM me if you want more details.
  4. Thanks, it would help if the unit gave a t@ss! But because it is just myself going from the unit...... I'm even going in C95 because the clothing store God thinks it would make him look bad if I scrounged from another unit.
