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. After 2 1/2 years as a civvy, I decided I'd had enough of civvy street, pulled my finger out and signed back on...
    I've just been given my unit and reporting date, and was told it was 61 Field Squadron (EOD), 23 engr regt.
    I didn't know there was an EOD sqn there, is this right?! And are they para trained (ie will I have to get off my fat civvy behind and do a lot more phys than I have been...)?

    Any heads up on the unit would be much appreciated!

    Cheers in advance.
  2. just in the throws of changing to eod sqn, no idea if they were pink hats though.

    61 will re-role to EOD and likely to move out of 23 Regt into one of the EOD units. Therefore the maroon beret will go.
  4. Cheers for that chaps. Good to know.
  5. Many of the members of 61 are under the opinion that Blue, Maroon and commando green will be worn by those who complete AACC etc!
