Thinking out of the box

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by polar, Sep 27, 2008.

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. Any ideas for different training, away from the isolated army camp keeping the TA in the public eye???

    Such as conducting CFT's in tourist areas (National Parks), with soldiers advertising their unit (plus the scenery would make the walk more interesting)

    Exercises with mountain rescue, maybe a CCRF/2 (NC) Sig Bde thing but valid training and creating a good public image of the TA (we have a lot of -sigs- kit they may wish to make us of).

    Other things I've seen in the past:

    4 Para doing FIBUA/OBUA??? in a disused factory, public again able to watch.

    Family weekends, unit does adventure training but family also attends. My unit used to camp out in the Peak District with girlfriends, wifes, kids etc in tow.
     
  2. a lot of that now cant be done - mr h&s wud av a fit
     
  3. You could do a spot of 'Urban Orienteering' just make it look on paper that it will be a 'night orienteering exercise'...

    Do yourself a favour and drop the txtspk/chavspeak or you'll continually get the p1ss taken on a site like this. It's not that hard to spell and punctuate properly is it?
