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. Hi,

    I have noticed this was attempted in a couple of other threads with little success so here it goes!

    Does anyone have an idea of what is entailed on the PIOFV? I am due to attend later this year and am really looking forward to it.


  2. Its just a visit to Warminster to see if you like the feel of being an infantry officer.

    You'll get a few lectures, a few chances to play with some of the kit (we got to ride around in Warriors on the plain!) and a session or two of phys. Most important thing career-wise is you'll have plenty of chances to chat with the guys who are in the infantry for real, to see what they say and you'll have a chance to reckon if you'll fit in.

    Don't sweat it, its not a weeding-out or anything, as long as you showed up your recruiting officer will be pleased.
