Tri-Service Drill???

Discussion in 'Seniors' started by G104MEN, Mar 25, 2007.

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. This might be a huge WAH!, but I 've seen on a thread from another forum, someone talking about the introduction of Tri-service Drill?!? Is this correct, and is so, does anyone know when and in what format will this happen?Is this just another nail in the coffin of each service and part of the slippery slope towards a Canadian style "Armed Forces"? :thumbdown:
  2. Arrgh- can you imagine?

    As part of a smart as a carrot and well motivated Joint Force we could get:

    Sense of history from the Royal Navy

    Fighting spirit from the RM

    Drill from the Army

    Pay, allowances & working hours from the Crabs

    Instead if the MoD/Bliar's bunch got involved we'd get:

    Traditions from the Crabs

    Drill from the Andrew

    Pay & Allowances from the Army

    Fighting spirit from the Islington LGB&T-G 5-a-day Real Nappy Immigrant Co-ordination Outreach Workers' Branch.

    edited to add: Sorry, didn't knock before coming in...
  3. I've heard that tri-service drill is basically going to be the army's without the stamping/driving and some of the marines traditions.
  4. It's all the same anyway.

    A few capbadges ahve different sppeds and a few things differ but it is mainly the same.
  5. They use tri-service drill on some mixed parades so everyone stops/turns about together etc. looks cool too, but not as hot n sexy as the female members of the RM Band Service!
  6. Tri-service drill is the same drill used by the Royal. Was speaking to the DI at BRNC a few months ago and he was very definite about the introduction of it across all three services.

    The reason he cited was that all the foot-stamping etc was causing untold joint damage and the Powers That Be still wanted soldiers that could look sharp and not require knee surgery by the time they're 35.

    Go figure.
  7. Guess that means running with heavey objects on one's back is soon to be dropped too then.....
  8. Step ladders provided to tank crews as well.
  9. If they are, I hope they will put "Stop climbing now" notices at the top. We don't need any more injuries FFS.
  10. Fecking dogsh1te. Why would they ever waste the time and the effort trying to introduce this.

    Funny as f uck :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:
  12. Choco Frog has never see Light Div drill.

    He will do soon, as we assimilate the entire Armed Forces of the UK.
  13. Truely this has too be a Wah ??? FFS
  14. Gotta say that would be further than we've gone. We still have seperate Naval drill, with foot sliding, etc. Different regiments have different takes on some movements. Ask someone to demonstrate a RCR halt someday. There are still different specifications for numbers of paces per minute and length of pace depending on the regiment.
    As far as the Air Force goes, I guess their contribution to drill is surprising with what sort of headdress they are going to wear today. :winkrazz:
