Any other TA Gunners finding Crewman 2k a bit of a bore?

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. Does anyone else think that Crewman 2k may be unsustainable in the TA? By my calculations it would take about a millenium for someone to become a No. 1.

    I know about Health and Safety etc. but... well I wouldn't want to be the wheel man (sorry person) on a light gun all my life.

  2. Being number three is not that bad, you get to loose the nylon hammer and ram the shell with the wrong end of the rammer because it fits in the breech better during darkness. Plus you get to claim £60 per year tax relief for cleaning the sheep and cow shit off your uniform. Top tip, take the strut jack to the REME and ask then to put a 5 degree bend in it, face the bend towards the platform and it never slips off. Drape that barrell.
