Reserves Review Rumours

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by MrTracey, Aug 12, 2008.

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. Whilst we await the outpourings of a few civil servants who have been asked to do the impossible, and as it's all very serious these days, I thought it was time we had some Reserve Review Rumours, to lighten the tone for summer perhaps?

    I'd heard that Royal Signals TA are to be rebadged Tactical Wing, Information Technology Specialists...

    They also believe that the RMP should be rebadged FANY.
  2. Due to current situation there are no longer any reserves, all reserves to check their post tomorrow for brown envelopes kindly inviting you's to come out and play :D

    P.s cept the scalies, its not that desperate yet :twisted:

    Rumour has it that this will be a solid and thorough review with some real intellectual input which will provide us with:

    - a clear mission and mandate
    - provide additional funding
    - restore the morale of the organisation
    - bring us up to full strength
    - re-populate the Officers' Mess with YOs
    - reduce the paperwork burden
    - put the fun back into the TA

    but then again, it might not.

  15. The Army School of Equitation is part of the Defence Animal Centre based in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. Along with the Equine Division, the site is shared between the Army School of Farriery, The Services Veterinary Hospital and The Canine Division.

    The school comprises of 150 stables, an indoor riding school, menage, cantering track, jump lanes and a 60 fence cross-country course along with 240 acres of grazing.

    Captain Richard Lyne, Equitation Officer and former member of the Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery, is the man in charge of the activities at the School of Equitation. Although the main objective is to provide equitation training for the mounted units within the London District (The Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery, The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment and The Household Division make up the mounted units of the British Army - about 400 horses in total) the School provides equitation training for other members of the Armed Forces too.

    i've only known one TA person who has managed to do a course there though.
