SAS and SRR reconaissance

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. (Apologies if this is in the wrong forum)

    Can anyone tell me the difference in types of work the SRR would do as opposed to SAS covert work?

    Obviously only give examples to stop security breaches. Im just trying to see what the SRR would do which SAS do not, as i thought SAS would do reconaissance also??
  2. Mate, theres no TA SRR, you're still a civilian, so you wouldn't be eligible for SRR selection for a good time yet anyway.

    You've been told all this in the TA forum, so phone 21 or join the Regulars and keep your head down for a few years.

    Either way, you won't get a lot apart from verbal abuse here.
  3. yeh i knew there was no TA SRR, i was just curious regardless :)
  4. Weirdo
  5. SRR have less impressive moustaches.
  6. SRR are encouraged to grow moustaches, SAS have to have them........ Queens Regulations state that this is a totally non-exempt policy.
  7. Now ask a proper question ?
  8. Do the SRR get issued black eye bars too?
  9. SRR are discouraged to grow moustaches as they would not blend in with civpop... unless in Brighton.
  10. Go to the link in my signature block for all of the answers to your SRR queries.

  11. hahahahaha.

    :roll: ...
  12. I've obviously drunk too much Black Douglas Ale, as I'm about to attempt a serious answer...SRR were set up to carry out covert surveillance, thus freeing up SAS soldiers for direct action missions. The SRR is a tri-Service unit, with many Operators having previously served with 14 Int.

    Because they were set up after the non-disclosure forms were introduced, you will not find any SRR-porn books.

    There. Now if you'll excuse me, the contents of my stomach have an urgent appointment with the cludgy...
  13. :D
