TA aren't allowed to train

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. Yet again, I am not allowed to do a training weekend, this time because the weather in Swynerton. I received three text messages over this. This is not an unusual occurance, wasn't allowed to go a weekend at Catterick because of heavy rain, even though a number of us turned up for the training.

    So, the question is, why won't the heirarchy allow the personnel who want to train actually do training in, ahem, "uncomfortable" conditions?
  2. Because it'll look bad if you snuff it?

    Because they understand just how weak and incapable you are?

    I would say you have been unlucky. My unit cancelled training this weekend, and that is the first time i can remember that happening in 15 years.
  6. Not unlucky, just a unit run by people who want their comfort more than they want trained personnel

  7. Despite the accumulated field experience of a 12 year Boy Scout, it appears that someone in the upper echelons of military policy planning realises that you're probably a bit too shit to play in the snow.

    I wonder how much outdoor training took place at the SofInf at Brecon today and scheduled for this weekend?

  9. Because their isn't a MATT for building snowmen.
  10. Nor indeed for spelling
  11. I remember going to Swynnerton in February it was very cold, we laid line through some water I didn't like it very much. My FFR got very dirty and I got water in my boots. It was odd as we had to drive on the wrong side of the road and it was very cold.

  12. Cock off, Ive had a shitty week dealing with TA :)
  13. The answer is simple. Someone who doesn't like you has access to the armynet text thing and is chinning you off because they think you're a cock. If you turned up at the original location of the training weekend tomorrow at 0700 that'd ******* teach em.
