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. Hi.

    I am currently look at joining the TA. Have spoken to Local unit, had a medical, then broke my hand, and as such cannot join till healed. Also starting a new job and have been told that they wouldnt be happy bout me joining during my probation, but after that am going to uni so i will have alot of spare time.

    I was just trying to get an idea of what courses, etc are avaliable to someone happy to do them. The CSM I spoke to and the pack I have give me alot of information, but most of it is quite general!

    I might add that i would be happy to be deployed on ops!
  2. Give us a clue, what kind of unit are you joining?
  3. Apologies, forgot that bit.

  4. None really for the first year or so until you've done your recruit training .... after that it's generally MOI/BITS (how to teach) course and infantry related courses to get your first stripe....

    Or do you mean things like sailing, climbing etc
  5. If it wasn't for the Regiment making me INFANTRY
    The council would have had me, employed doing bin-fantry.

    Sorry, just reminded of this classic poem
