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 Recently passed ADSC at Pirbright, my first job choice being Plant Operator Mechanic,

    I have done some research on the internet about the job but the only information i have found is on the Army site and it seems quite basic, i was wandering if anybody had any good links to where i could find information or if anybody in the job or with some knowledge could help me out

    i know the basics like where i will be training etc and for how long but i was hoping to find out a little more general information,

    im waiting for a start date, just keeping sharp on my fitness and i was wandering if there is anything more i could be doing or books i should be reading?

  2. Keeping up to date on the latest Ginsters literature literature should keep you in good stead.
  3. Buy a couple of toy earth movers and play in the sandpit.
  4. Just look out for the gopping bints at the Brompton/Chattenden stomps (assuming they are not banned now).
  5. all good info but i have already gathered from other threads that im soon to be an overweight pie muncher!
  6. ...."all good info but i have already gathered from other threads that im soon to be an overweight pie muncher"...

    Yes you will.

    You will also smerk tabs, wear your beret on the back of your head, keep a 6 pack of Herfy in your Muirhill/AllisChalmer/Grader (delete as appropriate) take 11mins 23 to do your BFT personal best - NOT including quick ciggie after first 1.5 miles - you are almost certain to marry some gopping scutter either picked up (literally ) on an Ireland tour or at the Brompton Stomp....(shudder...)

    oh .... and have some of the best laughs, best mates and therefore best time of your life.

    (...take a bit of advice....DON'T do the 'get married' bit - it just leaves the FUN parts )
