What is army life like

Discussion in 'Officers' started by Emkay, Nov 25, 2005.

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. Thinking about officer entry.

    Can anyone tell me what to expect both during and after training?

    Areas that interest me are army air corps, infantry and rmp.
     
  2. Get yourself down to the ACIO and booked on a fam visit with the above Regiments/Corps.
     
  3. Its great - Especially as an officer. You learn all sorts of things, like how to drink tea with your pinkie out, and how to read the broadsheets with finesse!

    In all seriousness - Its a great life, get yourself down to the careers office and get them to organise some Familiarisation visits!

    Good luck

  5. In all seriousness - after 30 years I'm still finding out. Thats the fun of it.
     
  6. After 23 years I am now experiencing the Officer life

    Perhaps we should have another thread...Direct Entry vs LE
     
  7. Didn't your father tell you? Extraordinary.
