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 from Ireland, I'm going to start phase 1 soon & I need to open a bank account.

    How do I do this as I have no fixed address in the UK, does the army have a system in place for those joining from abroad

    I know Ireland's not in the commonwealth,
  2. When you arrive in the uk for phase 1 training bring enough cash or have the means of drawing money from your own account in Eire if you need too .During Week one of training all this is addressed and sorted out for you by admin staff.
