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.  
  2. Also just in - The Navy like wearing shorts.
     
  3. ..............and sandals
     
  4. It's actually quite interesting. Because the TA seem to bounce somewhat randomly between units/tours, they're potentially bringing experience to the battalion that would otherwise be missing.
     
  5. Expect more of this sort of Non-story press release as the head shed try and cosy up to johnny STAB.
     
  6. More and more of Johnny joining every day....... and more advertising going out tonight.
     
  7. Reminds me a bit of Starship Troopers and "I'm doing my part"

    I'm Doing My Part - YouTube

    (Not knocking the lads out there, just the government spin machine that always manages to sound a but clunky)
     
  8. It's not STAB any more, it changed to.... PRAT, PRETEND REGULAR ARMY TWAT
     
  9. As opposed to professional regular army twat?
     
  10. Is it April Fools day already ?
     
  11. You "WILL BLEED ON THE FLAG TO KEEP THE RED IN THE CROSS OF ST GEORGE"? Please do, and don't stop.
     
  12. I thought it was decent article as well, and you're right, I knew guys on their second and third tours joining battalions who had yet to do one. I think the regular army should look at doing more of this, encourage regular soldiers with experience to volunteer to deploy with other battalions. It can be a sharp learning curve to a new-in-theatre infantryman, reg or TA.
