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. ok
    Im a civvy.I know nothing and am poor and weak. I beg forgiveness for my weakling ways and seek only knowledge from the cantankerous and irrrate.

    P-coy looks easy. There.
    I said it. Now feel free to verbally hurt me. I like it.
    Appart from the log thing, which scares the living shit out of me, the rest - it looks well, easy. Ok, so ive never seen the obstacle course, being weak and civvy like but i have the internet, and thus can voice my opinion on things i know nothing about as fact.

    I dont know what speed tabbing is meant to be, but up the canals or park near me im doign 30 miles in under 5 hours 30mins - 50 lbs. Just to see, you know what its all about.

    ok so the question is meant with all due respect.Fighting service and etc is glorious, etc. 5 VC's in PARA cant be sniffed at.
    But to me, a soft bodied civvy fattened on jeremy kyle, soft drinks and internet porn abuse p-coy looks, well, easy. educate me. hurt me.

    to fear or not to fear p-coy, hat is the question....
     
  2. ideally some tales of people taking p-coy and the nightmares or flashbacks from it
     
  3. Incoming.................................................

    Smell a wind up merchant here. Ask Sandy, I'm sure he will agree with you...
     
  4. No wind up at all. I, like a lot of campers, fell walkers, hill walkers and fell runners do a lot of long walks at speed.
    The lyke wake walk for example is 40 miles. Ive done it myself actually.
    half of p-coy it is moving about with weight lie ive mentioned above.

    What point im getting at is maybe p-coy only looks hard because its open to so few people at any one time.
    Like, if open to the entire civvy world, and say 25% pass - thats a shit load of people.
    So what im hinting at is maybe its all just in the mind, and nothing really to be that fussed at.

    B0llocks.
     
  6. Not even wedge could pull this one off!
     
  7. Do you write poetry sometimes? About P Company? You could share it with us, a haiku perhaps.
     
  8. Oh look, a seagull
     
  9. Hint; the answer involves The Golden Mean, but I can't say more. Good luck.
     
  10. Looked more like an albatross to my poor eyes...
     
  11. Crows-millions of them!
     
  12. It's a confidence trick.
     
  13. Only one way to find out!
     
  14. I've just finished P-Coy yesterday, found it quite easy as it is now a multi-choice/tick-test, I ticked the box for 9:15 PFT time to access the module even though I've never actually finished one.

    You will need to create a DLP account at your nearest education centre and the whole course is done online now (saves money).

    I start the BPC on Monday, we're doing the first bit using WII-fit, saves having to keep aircraft apparently.

    Carry On.
     
  15. P-coy looks easy.

    It does doesn't it? But...................
