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. If I joined the 3rd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment and passed phase 1 and 2 training, could I transfer to the regular infantry without doing phase 1 and 2 again?
     



  2. good answer
     
  3. If you wanted to spend time 'as a regular' whilst TA you could do FTRS? Maybe not 100% what you were after but could be worth a look for you.
     
  4. Whats FTRS?
     
  5. Full time reserve service - service as a territorial, but fulltime with a reg unit

    Funny answers, because several, probably many years ago, it was perfectly possibly to transfer across with or without some your rank, or all of it. I think possibly ParaTrooper15 based in Grantham trying to join a reg Inf unit whilst just completing TA phases 1&2 might piXX of a few folks...
     
  7. A few of my mates after a tour transferred across to our Regular Btn with no problems at all. The paperwork took a couple of months to sort out but there was no need for them to redo Phase 1 or CIC again. One of them even retained his rank.
     
  8. After a successful tour yes. I wonder if that is still likely to occur now there are fewer difficulties in regular recruiting?
