TA Tour

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. My regiment is going on tour next year to Cyprus, and I'm commissioning in September. I've already been told I'm not REQUIRED to go, but I'd really love to! Only problem is, I'll still have uni, and while the start date is fine, I'd miss a month of uni at the end. As it's Cyprus, and it's relatively safe, is there much chance I'd be able to come home early/take leave at the end/any other solution?

    If so, who do I speak to about this?

    Cheers in advance for replies!
  2. Speak to your COC and also speak to your uni.
  3. msr

    But do not screw up your studies for a tour.

  4. My 2p worth: get Uni out of the way first because that may be the key to all sorts of other things you want to do in life. Then when you're ready sign up for a REAL tour (HERRICK in other words) and do some proper soldiering.

    You can spend a couple of weeks on the lash in Cyprus any time and have more fun than you'll ever do stagging on out there with the Army. Just read the thread from the last lot who went...
