All Commanding Officers and Regimental Sergeant Majors please just get a grip # 2

Whilst looking at Soldier Magzine I noticed soldiers now lace their boots however they like.

How will the Gurkha's know who's throats to slit?

Can anyone think of any other Fads which may result in the complete destruction of HMF and possibly the entire planet?

And what was wrong with the #1 thread exactly? :) Don't you enjoy being shouted at by sgtmajors and being able to tell them to fuck off?

Soldiers shouldn't have opinions. In my day they only had their puttees for entertainment and a better army it was.
If only we could get that inconvenient little war in Afghanistan over with and get back to the important business of straightening everyone's beret out!

Why whats up with berets... For a minute there I thought you were going to say they weren't being worn with the cap badge so close to the left eye it could be confused for being over the right.

While looking at the pics of HRH Charles with some Paras on the other thread it did occur to me that maybe the reason they do the badge to the side and the flat cap look is simply because the wings on the badge are so feckin big they get in the way otherwise.

what ever happened to " Any person that runs is a VC, anyone that stands still is a well disciplined VC"

Welcome to ARRSE, ah crap....

Maybe the Old and Bold cold war warriors could fuck off or join the 21st Century.
Maybe you could get some in.

Oh and two sugars in my tea, you can scrub the pans afterwards.

When are we going to get back to real soldiering, like areas, painting curbstones and sweeping the grass? None of this trying to make foreign lands safe for Johny Foreigner, have you seen the state of some of our camps these days?
