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. Why was the ACC never given the Royal before their regtl name?

    Because the Queen once ate their food.
  3. :clap:
  4. Is this the end of that then :?
  5. I knew the naafi was the right place to post the question. :D
  6. Never mind Brummie :p By the by, they would have been known as RACCS? 8O
  7. aka .... fitters & turners course

    fit it in the pan & turn it to sh1te.
  8. I know an ex ACC cook who trasfered his skills and became a POM, he needed NO conversion trg! . . . . :wink:
  9. I give up; why wearn't they given "Royal" before their regimental name?
  10. Not as strange as it seems, when I was attached to 23 RE in Traz, we went on a bridge camp. The Q dragged us two chefs out to build MGBs, good laugh, loads of fun but knackering after a while, we left 4, yes 4, RE Cpls in the kitchen to cook rice for that nights curry, 3 f'kin attempts it took them even after we had written the bloody instructions down. Just goes to show that catering is a skill, but any cunt can build a bridge :wink:
  11. saintstone, enough said 23! They couldn't build bridges either, that's why I was a Crane Op, there to get them out of the sh1te when it went wrong.

    ANYONE can cook Rice!

    When was that?
  12. '89, bridge camp in Hameln IIRC, the same year at Vogelsang, they challenged all the chefs to a bridge building competition, close thing I think on that one as our Q didn't like losing. Every morning PT session was training with the f'kin stuff :x
  13. Fact 1: It takes the human body 12 hours to turn food into shit.

    Fact 2 : It takes Andy Capps Commandos about 30 seconds. :)
  14. Yeah, yeah, tell me one I haven't heard :-
    Fitters and turners, hardest course in the army etc
