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. does any one no how they r getting on out there at the moment r they just stagging on or doing something better,i ask as my battlion the rifle vols r taking over in october
  2. As of a week ago they were still in Germany waiting to be deployed. But no doubt it will be the same as every other rrv tour stagging on, top cover, and local patrols, no time off, doing bone tasks whilst on qrf/rest
  3. Isn't that what Reg Infantry do too?
  4. As a TA soldier, with limited training and experience, what do you expect to be used for - assaults on AQ mountain locations on the Afghan/Pakistan border??

    Hate to say that aint an unusual attitude among some, but by no means all, TA soldiers (and i say this as one myself!). They get into theatre and expect to get off the plane and straight into a riot/firefight etc.
