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. All training scrapped in the current financial year - straight from MOD.

    Stand down till May 2010. 8O
  2. Sho' ting.
  3. CGS/CinC give you a call did they?
  4. That's suspended too.
  5. So I take it Bullsh*t Bob told you in person?
  6. The duty rumour is that Her Madge sent him a text!

    Woe, Woe, and Thrice Woe........

    Although I cannot confirm twiggylad's announcement, I can say that pretty shortly, unless your training is directly linked to Ops, it will cease. Stop. Desist. You can still turn up, I suppose, but don't expect to be paid for it.

    In case you haven't noticed, this Government has spent all our money, and all our children's money, and borrowed against our grandchildren's earnings.

    The MOD in particular is hard hit because:
    a) it is fighting a war/insurgency/insectSurrection/Civil War/ whatever you like to call it, and
    b) it is not about to get a penny more from the Treasury. Ergo, to fight the war even halfway 'properly', it means taking money from everywhere else. This means the TA, as well as many many other areas. The reasons for this late shift in priorities are easy enough to discern. Firstly, there's an election due next year, and secondly, there's an election due next year. Expect more knee-jerk quick fixes for the next six months.

    Don't book a Spring Break on the back of TA earnings, is all I'm saying....
  15. Anyone informed the Regular Army of that?
