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. Firstly I have never posted on this site before so would like to say a big warm fuzzy hello to all users. Im sure that any welcomes back from you all will have me touching myself.

    Now before I get carried away I shall get to the point,
    I am due posting within the next year and am pretty sure that this next post will be my last due to personal reasons so I am wanting a posting near to the midlands or surrounding area if possible. I have, however, no idea what units are in that area or how to get information on units locations or what they are scaled for (for checking whether a post will be available ect).
    Does anyone know how I can get this info on which units are based in or around the midlands and what they are scaled for, I am a VM S/sgt and not in my last 3 years.

    Any info or help would be most appreciated.

    Many thanks.
