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. Hi all,

  2. I've been reliably informed it happens at Xmas.
  3. :) i should have worded it better!
    left myself open to that... nice that you hit it up first
  4. I'm having from AD 9th December to FP 9th January.

    You won't be though.
  5. You`ve just joined the army andwant leave??????
  6. I will be Whelking somewhere sunny.
  7. Remember you get paid before Xmas Day, which is always handy for buying presents and travelling home etc.

  11. Aye Legs, thanks for reminding me. I love these forums :)
  12. Yes you'll almost certainly get Christmas and New Year off. If I was a betting man I'd bet on you finishing about the 22nd and being back for about the 5th. Depends on how the time table for your troop falls. You'll be told when you get there.
  13. When is payday this December?
  14. Probably Friday 23rd Dec.
