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. Guys, as the title says is it possilbe? Or do you have to serve in a field unit first?(yes I have done a search but cant get an up to date answer). Also is it any trade that can go to said unit?

    Thanking you.
     
  2. have you got a gsxr ?
     
  3. Yes. No. Yes.
     
  4. did have. got rid last summer like an idiot.
     
  5. you'll miss it in the next few weeks. i don't think you have to have one for 216, we didn't need one at 22, (sr).
     
  6. loads of the lads at blandford are going to 216, it's one of the easier postings to get. they won't send you if your phys isn't up to scratch though.
     
  7. I sob now everytime I see a bike and its not even summer yet! Cheers guys passed selection last week with the intetntion of joining parachute reg but now umming and arring about getting a trade and qualifications. Yea my phys is up to scratch so I saw 216 as a happy compromise!
     
  8. May need to check those answers fella.
     
  9. No I don't, "Fella".
     
  10. Yes

  13. Nope just answering his questions without reading the other comments.
     
  14. Ok then, but i'm pretty sure that not every trade can be posted to 216.
     
  15. Only ew ops won't go 216, but can still do the airborne role with 14 sigs
