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. what is the best way to layout webbing PLCE not webtex sh11te yes i am a cadet so dont take the p1ss and no im no walt
  2. Whatever seems to the most useful to you, as long as you don't stick the waterbottle pouch at the rear as you risk getting headbutted after asking somebody to get your water out for you after the 17th time.
  3. As most cadets do just cover your hips and lower back in glue then roll around the bottom of your locker........... Hey presto! Your webbing fitted!
  4. Ask one of your AI's, they're the experts...............oh, hang on............err.......do what Fallsch said.

    Mercian SGT,

    Ignore Fallshirmjaeger and Threaders_VM, they are just being cunts.

    You have to fit your webbing depending on what kit you need to hand.

    What is most important to you? Pouch full of Haribo, or your large collection of Rambo knives? Extra large wooly hat and gloves with string or empty mess tin with metal knife, fork and spoon in?

    Only when you have worked out your essential kit can you sort your webbing out.

  8. other peoples lockers, shurly?
  9. Depends what your webbing is. Assuming PLCE not '58, from L to R, have a double ammo, 3x waterbottle/utility, either another double ammo or a utility pouch. Keep the waterbottle somewhere you can reach it, and balance the weight with a messtin (just one: you don't want the "cadet clank" of two mess tins banging together whilst patrolling) full of rations or similar. Keep your Haribo etc out of the ammo pouches, and don't carry some stupid SS dagger. a sandbag is popular with many people, and would be useful as a gash bag.
    Don't spend a fortune, though. All you really really need is water and bullets; the smock could take everything else; but as I can remember having webbing makes you feel less of a cadet and more of a gimlet-eyed killing machine...
