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. We keep hearing that FSTs are in great demand in Afghanistan yet why does it seem impossible to volunteer to go?

    Have you tried changing to the infantry and then having a go yet?
  3. my god what Regt are you then ?

    My guess work would say that if you are a FST in a Field Regt then they probably don't want to lose their guys due to high turnover of deployment, have you checked your Regts FOE over the next 2 years ?
