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. I have been tasked by the CO to come up with an activity that will "place the Platoon Commanders under serious duress" at the conclusion of a Bn exercise.

    Any suggestions chaps? Helpful or otherwise!

  3. loose some of the lads with expensive equipment for 24hrs
  4. Essay writing. Serious duress.

    CBRN log run
  7. P1ss up in a brewery :?
  8. Bump off the CoC and make them take over and run Sqn/Coy and R/BnHQ.

    Might be interesting...
  9. no pre-warning either. Just give them dead air.
  10. How they would stage a Coup d'etat?

    That'd get GCHQ to take note...

    Tell them that due to a last minute change in plan they have to organise a royal visit at the last moment.

    This would allow the whole of the CoC to be in on the 'serious duress'.

  13. Not sure about doing something just at the conclusion, but I believe the Coldstream ran their own version of EX Long Reach for the battalion a while ago. The YOs expected to man the checkpoints, but right at the start line the CO said "take off your uniforms, put on these great coats, you have five minutes to memorize your route". Soldiers were told they'd get extra points if they captured a YO. That part of the exercise was known as Ex Running Rupert.
