Army Rumour Service
Once again the COs have broken into their piggy banks and come up with some Wonga to pay for Amazon Vouchers as prizes in the Grand Christmas Draw. As ever the Draw is open to everyone who is a participant on ARRSE, Rum Ration or Rear Party which is why you are asked for your username and the site you lurk in mostly.
The Prizes are similar to last year with £100, £40 and £20 of Amazon vouchers for 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively.
As is well known, certain Corps and Regiments consider certain other Corps and Regiments to be socially - or intellectually - inferior and generate some superb insults from that worldview.
These range from the high camp snobbery of an exquisite Grenadier who, upon hearing that their Royal Highnesses Princes William and Harry had commissioned into the Blues and Royals - "oh, my dear, a Parliamentarian regiment, really?", through snappy terms like 'the People's Cavalry' for the RTR, to the assertion, of a decent (then) County Regiment that "they don't have an MO, they have a botanist".
I'd be interested to hear any other snappy one-liners or hugely abusive (but witty) insults bandied around
