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:

    A place to lick stamps.
  2. I will be starting my training in two weeks and then hopefully going onto becoming a postal and courier operator. Does anybody here do this? What is it like? What should I expect?

    I can't comment on what to expect but all the P&C guys I've met seem to be happy with the job and have some exotic postings to boot. Good luck and welcome to the RLC.

Did 3 years in the Med Centre there, good set of Lads and Lasses, lot of bean flicking carpet munchers but most ok, can be a sh*te job in the depot but get yourself out and about and loads of top postings to all corners of the world. Good rugby team in my day dramitically boosted by yours truely!!!, and a good civvy club around the corner (MillHill Rufc) with a cracking bar.

    Good luck fella.
