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
    Thinking of transferring from Infantry to RN. There seems to be little prospect for advancement in the Army part of the services. I had already been accepted for the Navy but then a pal joined the Army and I stupidly dropped RN and followed him when I should have stayed with the Navy career which is what I have always wanted to follow.

    Any suggestions folks?

  2. invest in some lube?
  3. Strange, I was expecting the 'Golden Rivett' joke actually:)

    It's advice on how to transfer as the command structure here are saying that it's not available to me...
  4. Have they given a reason as to why it's unavailable to you?
  5. You might find that alot of units/corps/regts etc will have put a hold on transfers until the fallout from the sdsr has settled.
  6. Chances are slim to be honest - there is a multi-year waiting list to get into the RN, and a redundancy programme in force. They gain little from taking you as you dont bring any relevant transferable skills or trades. Probably easier to leave and then rejoin in due course.
