A bit of humor at the expense of (some) officers

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. Just to demonstrate my well-developed sense of humor there is this I saw at my range the other day:4

    The reference to 1775 is the year the USMC was founded--in a tavern I might add.

  6. I assume they're some sort of hardware stores then? Do you get cheap bus fares and discount rego on your car?
  7. They are DIY superstores like B&Q in the UK.

    Most cities have special fares for public transit and some states have discounted car tag fees etc.

    RE: "my range"
    Do ye own yer own private shooting gallery JJH?

    If so, I can only assume the USMC has a generous pension scheme.
  9. I do indeed have my own rifle/machinegun (to 300m) and pistol/SMG/Carbine ranges. When I bought my 45 acres land was cheap out in the middle of nowhere where our farm is. Isolated is an understatement but the LHCO, our 10 dogs and I like it that way.

    And do not come visiting unless you call first! ;-)

  11. I'df only it was all paid for! I do agree we are quite spoiled--and I have a fantastic Kubota tractor with cool implements! And yes, I actually do play a banjo. ;-)

    Let's not get too carried away. If I understand the man correctly, he does have a wife.

    Sound advice in all cases, but most especially when visiting a jarhead who owns not only 10 hounds and a machine-gun range but also - utter, gibbering horror - plays a banjo.
