Are Welsh people more succesful soldiers?

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Outstanding, Feb 23, 2006.

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. I have an opinion!
  2. Really? How interesting. No no really. We're all delighted for you

    That is absolutely Outstanding :!: 8O
  4. Richard Burton was Welsh, and he played a blinder leading that commando raid on the Schloss Adler, so I'd say you might have a point.

    Now, off to the NAAFI with this thread.
  5. Offa should have dug that dyke deeper to keep them all in!!!!
  6. I dont think so as the national goverment is in LONDON and not CARDIFF.
  7. Remarkable, so have I.

    Perhaps you could elucidate.
  8. Do share.
  9. and? opinions are like arrseholes - every fule got one.
  10. Only when surrounded by 1,000's of angry Zulu warriors
  11. I used to have one of those but my GP gave me some ointment for it...
  12. Cue Warrior-poet and some pointed reference to Brixton.
  13. ...but you don't want to see them all.

    I think Edward Longshanks is probably the best authority on the Welsh military capability. The only notable Welsh commander of the modern era I can think of is General Picton (Penn. War/Waterloo).
  14. We're still waiting!
  15. The Welsh - excellent soldiers?

    Are you drunk?
