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. I was talking to a few mates today and we got onto the subject of going through basic training.
    Now who on here would go through all that again.

    i would.
     
  2. spike7451

    spike7451 RIP

    Me too.Better than CivPop anyday!
     
  3. I certainly wouldn't?Juniors wasn't all just fun even though that's all some arrsers seem to remember,anyway i'm over 40 and a little too fond of pies :oops: so i think a BFT is nowadays out of the question!! I'd love a cabby on a Minimi though!! :D
     
  4. love to go through basic again.
    having served in the RAF&army,i have to say the RAF basic training was the hardest. :twisted: :twisted:
     
  5. me but def not my cadre!!
     
  6. That will explain why so many fail it abysmally.....and still get posted on
     
  7. If I could have an extra hour in bed and the amount of phys adjusted to take into account the 20 years since?

    Fuck right off.
     
  8. Basic? Yes i certainly would. It was still the WRAC when I joined and Guildford was a piece of cake. I wouldn't want to do do trade training/phase two again though. I hated assault courses then and doubt I want to be friends with one now. :wink:
     
  9. I would love to give it a go. I'm a fat cnut now and would probably go through rather than over the 6ft wall.
     
  10. Obviously some people didn't have it hard enough the first time round ;)
     
  11. if i could earn the money i am now,i,d rejoin tomorrow!!!but don,t tell my knees,(or the wife!) :D
     
  12. Only if what I heard about Shirts KF (scouring, for the use of) been banned under the Geneva Convention is true!
     
  13. I would. Although it seemed difficult at the time I've done harder courses since.
     
  14. Ah, Guildford.. just but a short trip from Arborfield in the 70's.. and Burghfield - HMS Dauntless... WRENS were dirty little minxes... so, yes basic again (as in brat school)? without a doubt
     
  15. come on there has got to be more that this.
