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. Greetings all, I am soon to be a PSI and wondered if there were any like minded chaps or chapesses lurking on this forum ???? Mainly as a POC for top tips, guiding hands etc. :wink:
  2. Bring a very Big sense of humour......massive sense of humour, more humour that you think you'd need . Cos you'll need it....! :)

  4. And patience, lots and lots of patience.
  5. Thanks for the link, will get a brew and dig through.
  6. As msr always says, ask your PS... oh nevermind.
  7. hello 2/4 What specialisation? Infantry etc?
  8. Im REME ( dont you dare go for the wah !!!) I will be looking after the trg for the Nat Increment Coys, so hoping to put some worthwhile and interesting trg together.
  9. Be prepared that you may organise the best trg w/e ever, only to find a handful turn up, due to the fact there's foot ball on the telly!

    Good luck.

  10. I have been tipped off to this fact, but short of burning their houses like Luddites I feel I will be powerless to a certain extentin forcing them to come in, therefore I need a big carrot if anyone has one buckshi ;)
  11. Just get to know them well 2/4, be interested in who they are and what they do. Get to know them so well they feel like they're letting you down personally when they don't rock up ;)
  12. Quite true, however if the PSI says something like "Fellas, I've worked my arrse off for this, and it's damn good training, you'll only get something like this once a year" and it happens to be true, you'll get a lot more turn up! :D

    Sometimes it's a bit hard to distinguish the "bone" weekends and Tuesdays from the good ones, and when you have occasional commitments knowing when the big efforts are really help everybody involved.
  13. OK 12 months on I am now ready to hang myself, surrounded by backstabbing brown nosing regs who are hiding from the real world, and both Reg and TA officers with more Walt skills than Mr Mitty himself. I despair for the hard working guys who bust a gut to get things done. Thank f**k I am out this year, i would rather shove angry wasps up my arrse than do this job. Rant off but take heed if you are offered this post in the next 12 months, in fact PM me if you think you may be !! :x
