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. Having left the corps four years ago, I was just wondering what other ex-sappers are doing on the dark side?

    I've joined the police now and I've recently qualified as a firearms officer. (god help us!)

    So I'd be interested to hear what others are doing? and what their experiences, of civi street are?





    And if your still serving..... good luck. ;0)
     
  2. left in 97 , bummed around doing all sorts of different job's ,
    now working for a social housing company ,doing the maintenance,
    and loving it

    i always thought that ex forces were not allowed on the firearms side of life as we are taught to shot to kill whereas "filth" 8O 8O are not, is this not the case :?: :?:

    To be honest, they like ex-squaddies (espeacially ones that know how to make things go bang :p ) but they dont like to admit it.
    guns are guns at the end of the and if they dont have to be worried about your weapon handling or tactics, the it's one less thing for them to teach you
     
  5. Left end of 2004, now working for a large utilities company as an assistant project manager but spend most of my time on this because i miss the banter!! Funny really most of the guys in my old Sigs Tp that left have Civils/Engineering jobs now as opposed to Comms.
