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. Im going to be joining 6 rifels in exeter next year. Ive got all the information i need but wanted to know how long a tipical deployment lasts, are you away for the full length of tour or is there down time back at home? Im commited whatever but friends and family would like to know.

  2. Somehow with ops winding down I can't see you even remotely getting close to going on ops considering you've got 9 weekends to go through, 2 weeks at CIC (assuming your not a **** up an pass every weekend and Catterick first time) then you'd have to go through the process including pre deployment training which lasts quite a while. All in all I think your chances of going on Herrick are slim
