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'm New to the website, and seeking information on IT and Comms.

    I'm 25 and Have recently Handed in my application to join, and really like what i have been told,found out about this area of the army.

    Can anyone give me any real information about this trade, I understand there may be many different jobs that fall under this title but any insight would be of help.

    • Is it a good career Choice?
    • Pay and benefits of this trade?
    • Career advancement possibilities? will I be stuck at Lance Corporal for 22 years or possibly end up as a WO1
    Any information, good or or bad would be appreciated.

  2. Go on the army website.
  3. If you can't make L/Cpl inside the first year then you are not going to be required the following year.

    There is no such animal as a 22-year L/Cpl since I don't know when.

    In 1969 I went - Pte - L/Cpl - in three months, Cpl in two years, Sergeant another 2.5 years, S/Sgt almost three years, WO2 three years, WO1 in two years and ten days later I was a captain.

    Good, eh?
