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. Was wondering what is the time ratios as a sapper. being a Three-in-one soldier what do you spend most of your time doing. Both at base and in ops?

    Cheers! :?
  2. It depends what job you get posted in to but as a rule of thumb for a sapper I would say:

    40% - Cbt Engr
    20% - Infantry
    40% - Trade

    Realistically though:

    40% - Cleaning out G10 stores and painting stuff
    20% - Getting shouted at and running about doing sh*t jobs
    40% - Doing sport/ Adv Trg and generally having fun

  3. for you: 100% telling lads that the project needs to be moved 1" to the left 8O :D 8O :D
  4. Thanks clerks_of_jerks! legendary! so how long you been in for?
