Radio One Assault Course

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. Heard about this on the radio earlier in the week

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/rednoseday/2009

    Basically, while Chris Moyles has been climbing Kilimanjaro, his team have been doing other challenges for Comic Relief, one of which was an army assault course.

    Having seen the video, I am a bit puzzled.

    Can anyone identify the location. Some of the obstacles look a bit flimsy to be a genuine assault course.
    The 'staff' seem to be wearing an odd mixture of kit, which would lead me to believe that they actually went to some sort of corporate entertainment venue.

    What a pity they didn't approach the Army to do the job properly.
     
  2. Eight foot wall not made of brick? Can't possibly be genuine. Some very dodgy DS kit also.
     
  3. PARA guy had a red lanyard. Perhaps someone who has got out and sunk his resetlement into this?
     
  4. It is a civi event place. seen it on some program on bbc3 where aload of guys where trying to get self confidence put into them...
     
  5. At the end Carrie says shes a broken woman...
    She doesn't know the meaning of broken :twisted: :twisted:
    She's obviously never been bummed
     
  6. So that's how you'd describe the feeling?
     
  7. That's probably a Health and Safety thing?
     
  8. moyles against a 12' wall with a firing squad in front of him sounds good.
     
  9. Wouldnt know, but she doesnt look as broken as some of the women iv seen :twisted:
     
  10. The chances of getting civilians onto Military Assault courses now are slim due to changes in Qualifications required by staff to run them.

    Once again the H&S Fun police popped in and cocked it up.

    The old fella with the maroon lid on looked like he retired about 50 years ago
