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 All I have just recently applied and I am awaiting my BARB test dates. I am interested in joining the rifles if i got through selection and interviews and when i pass out of basic training would i then choose my battalion or would i be placed into a battalion that needs me the most? Or would i be put into a battalion thats the closest to me which would be chepstow? I just thought i would ask as I forgot to ask at the Careers Office any help would be appreciated.
     
  2. You can choose as far as I know. Thinkin about the rifles also, 3 Rifles is the closest to me in edinburgh. :D
     
  3. Most likely you will have a choice but as far as I'm aware they also have the authority to put you in there chosen regiment for what ever reasons they may have.
     
  4. I thought you said quick?
     
  5. I'm joining the rifles too , start basic in 1/3/09

    They asked me what battalion I would like to join and I said 3 rifles

    So you get to choose , and best of luck with you app mate
     
  6. and the primitive word being "like", how ever don't think for a second if they need you somewhere else they won't hesitate to send you there.
