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. Open to all applicants. In fact, the advert states:

    'If you require this document in an alternative language, in larger text, Braille, easy read or in an audio format, please contact the Community Relations Officer.'

    You could not make it up.

  2. Its gone, but ffs BRAILLE, your right, no-one could make that up.
     
  3. Apparently, someone did. What next? "The Infantry would especially welcome applications from the Quaker community"?
     
  4. Like this quote from the article - 'The islands are always at the cutting edge of innovation, so it would certainly be something for Scilly to have the world's first blind air traffic controller.'
    Reckon that they might find that demand for seats on planes heading there would nose-dive though (no pun intended)... 8O
     
  5. Well, lets just hope the applicant isn't deaf. I have visions of an oasis of calm surrounded by by screaming speakers and terminal hisses.

    They'm a buggar when they hearing aid batteries goes flat m'dear...
     
  6. Good spot Blog - albeit, you're admitting to reading the site!
     
  7. This ARRSEpedia entry was created nearly two years ago. Clearly someone was inspired by it. Life immitating art? :roll:
     
  8. This is hilarious!
    Until you'll find yourself in the hands of such air traffic controller of course...
     
  9. Try going to Malaga (actually, anywhere in Spain but Malaga tops the pile). You'd be better off if the controller was deaf and blind and sort it out amongst yourselves. :roll:

    Have had a few "interesting" days out in Marrakech too. 8O
     
  10. It was mentioned on 5Live on the Drivetime Show, and the announcer completely lost it. She couldn't stop larfing.
