49 Para. Close Recce Troop

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by scarletto, Aug 9, 2008.

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. As one can see from my signature block, i am an illustrious member of this Troop. One which has operated in areas, which still cannot be mentioned, even the Darlington Operation :wink:

    So for the member of this site who has PMed me today, asking me, how one joins this unit, and can he change his options whilst at ITC to 'my' unit, here is the answer.

    You do not join us, we ask you.

    I hope this also helps the other lads who are thinking of joining 49 Para.
  2. Shame I can't join.

    Im in 89 (PARA/SAS/RM) Sigz battalionz.

    Motto- "When you get to the ring, lick clean"
  3. I was once in:

    69 Disco Lighting Tp RE
    321 Specialist Bin Removal Sqn RE (only after completion of my B1 Bass Broom Operator Mechanic course).
    999 Striking Civilian Support Sqn RE

    ... and the final test of my All Arms SF Painting & Decorating Course was to paint the boathouse ... at night ... dressed as a bush ... in the rain ... using emulsion.

    It's all true I tell yer guv ... read me book :wink:

    So it was you that made that mess

    I was wandering past it the other day with Dinger,Dell and ubby Loo when some one said "have you seen the state of the boat hoose man"
    "It looks as though it's been done by a one eyed blind bloke jumping up and down"
    What a slap dash job as it was we were in a rush to get to the Balcony for a pint
    As per usual the plan to get to the boozer was longer than the actual drinking time
    I wanted to hijack a local taxi but Geordie wanted to walk 200 hundred miles in the opposite direction and double back
    Three of us ended up in the nick and Geordie got pissed and woke up in Wales
    Henno went mental over the size of his kebab - he's not maintained that figure on a medium then some gwa burd chinned him and the cops were called
    Mind we kept 500 coppers busy just on our reputation

    Can you go back and sort out the boat house please
  5. ok ... what colour you want it this time? In the usual code please ... OPSEC and all that.

    Edited to add: My bold in your text ... don't you mean "legged" :roll:
  6. No kidding?

    You said you wouldnt tell!
  8. We don't mention the Darlo Op!

    Persec I was trying to divert 'rogue' elements away from you
    They are looking for a one eyed Scottish bloke to give a pasting too - know anyone that fits the bill
