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. well im 22 nearly 23 and sent an application form online a few days ago and to be honest im not sure what to join, i want a bit of action on the ground but dont like the idea of getting shot at every 5 mins, or is that just a civillian understanding of infantry? also i like driving but dont really want to be driving all the time, any help would be appreciated
     
  2. Go to the Army website look at jobs and choose the ones that appeal to you the most, then, come back and ask questions specific to your choices in the relevant forums.

    Why do people expect us to do their research and choose their jobs for them?
     
  3. im not asking you to do any of my research for me, im asking what would be best for me to join since there is people on here with experience, because i like infantry soldier, loggistic support driver, armoured gunner and weapon specialist adviser
     
  4. How are we supposed to know what would best for you to join?

    What do you want to know about the Infantry that isn't covered on the Army website?
     
  5. the thing that has me confused is the different regiments and corps, what i mean is any of them jobs specific for a corps or regiment and what corps or regiment would i have to join for them jobs i posted above, if you get me?
     
  6. Try the head of a mountain gorilla to the body of a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. You could then marry it and call it your 'wife'. Seems to work for the Fijian lads.

  7. That took 5 seconds to find, looks like you did loads of research yourself
     
  8. If your not sure you want to join up, theres not really much point. Its 4 years mininum service and if its not something you think you would be good at/ not enjoy then its not worth wasting your time.
     
  9. no its defo something i want to do, i have my heart set on doing this, i was just a bit confused on the regiments and corps part, and crow bag why be a dick? seriously
     
  10. weapon specialist adviser?


    WTF is that when it's at home?
     
  11. its operating a firing range and teaching marksmanship and becoming and expert in all aspects of small arms
     
  12. So a qualification and not a trade then....
     
  13. Because you said you didn't want people doing your research for you yet even though this is something you really wanted you could be bothered to take 5 minutes to actually look at the Army recruitment website.

    If you're incapable of even carrying out the most basic research into a job that you supposedly want then I suggest you should forget the Army and try for a Mc Job
