Rivalry

#1
Why is there so much rivalry amongst the various regiments - after all aren't you all in the same British Army ?  How can we ever expect to be a joint Armed Force if there is so much in-fighting?

If you have to ask this then you don't understand the Army.  Part of our team bonding is that you automatically assume that you are better than anyone not in your team.  This applies at all levels so sections will fight sections, coys v coys, regts v regts, arms v arms, Army v RAF, etc.  

Pride makes us strong.

Believe me though when push comes to shove no-one works better together than the Army.

Could'nt agree with you more on that one Colonel!  It just would'nt work out if we all had a likeness towards eachother, we're all better at doing our own things in our own Corps, as the Colonel says, it's pride in our job and what we do..... ;D ;D

That's not actually strictly accurate.. The real reason is because the rest of the army are all sh!te..!  ;) ;D

If the different regiments/corps in the army did not have this revelry that means the passion is gone from what we do, thinking your better then every other reg/corps makes you want to prove you are, it's just the way the Army is if you were in the army and i take it your not for asking this question then you wouldn't even need to ask it it can't be explained as such it's just the system don't ask questions about it and crack on

The Scots Guards are the finest regiment in the British Army. The rest are crap

You getting the idea now?

Does anybody really think that the OP is going to read your replies? He hasn't been active for the last 10 years.

Anyway, is the AGC, RAPTC and SASC Forum the best place to get a biased viewpoint?

Cor! He started the thread 16 months before he joined ARRSE... Respec' bruv.

The Royal Green Jackets were the finest regiment ever, period. They were that good they had to amalgamate them with crap to dilute the standard.

Revelry is something I excel at!

It's humour like that that keeps morale high in the rest of the Armed Forces, keep up the good work.

Wow - 10 year old threadromancy.

Have you ever thought of a career trying to raise the undead and then taking over the world?

The rivalry between Signal Regts in BAOR was intense..13 hated 21, 22 hated 13 and
21, 16 hated 13, 21 and 22, 28 hated 13,16, 21, 22. Everybody hated 7 and they
hated everybody, including themselves and 14 kept out of it 'cos they were
a bunch of lily-livered jessies.

Everybody in the Corps hated 10 Sigs, although based in Hounslow.....it was full of
the sick, lame and lazy.
