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 not sure if this is the correct place for this but I hope you can help. I am joining the army this summer and due to start my first posting in December. I know the board was held in May but I've not heard anything, this week I met a young 2Lt who had heard from my brother who is a Lt that I was due to be posted to "somewhere" and that he knew all about it.

    I have two issues with this: Firstly, why does my brother know about this before me? I think he may have found out on the intranet but I would have hoped that i would be told at a similar time to when the information was posted. What's going on there.
    My second issue is that my brother has taken it upon himself to tell all of his friends, my friends and my family where I am going to be posted and I hear it off some gobsh1te I met in a pub last week. Am I justified in being properly irritated by this?
  2. Given the basic info you put on here I have to assume that you are joining a specialist corps as if you have not yet joined then it is unlikely that a normal corps would have allocated you a posting. If it is one of the specialist corps then you may be better asking on one of their threads.
  3. I am joining a specialist corps, I will contact them on Monday to find out about it. I think what is gripping me mostly is that my brother thought it reasonable to tell everyone I know before having the courtesy to see if I was aware of this info. Am I the only person who thinks this is slightly unprofessional? Or is it because I can't stand him anyway that it is irritating me so much?
  4. I'd say your issue is with your brother - who is probably spouting b0llocks anyway. Tell him to get back in his box, and to keep you informed if he hears anything useful.
  5. better still kick his head in if he is a rupert.
