Army Interrogator on Trisha!

Discussion in 'Int Corps' started by Hantslad, Apr 22, 2008.

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. Thats the bastard who called my nob smal when i was on the RTI stage of THEM, didnt break me though.
  2. After clicking on this link, I realised that this guy was the entertainer at my work's Crimble party night at a local football stadium.

    I was driving that night, therefore sober and spent some time watching him scanning tables, sussing people out and being very selective as to who he picked to do his 'tricks' on.

    As our party was fairly large, covering 3 tables, my colleagues were fascinated when he managed to make his pulse slow down and stop. When he got to my table, I had to picture my front door number and then it magically appeared on a bit of paper, scribbled like a child's writing.

    He was, for the most very impressive, but they were all hammered. I still reserve my opinion on his talent. Maybe my cynicism.
  3. If you are ever seriously challenged by anyone keep your hands in your pockets or at your side and never make eye contact.


  4. when on holiday in in PO1, I always say:
    " I'm saying nothing
    I'm saying nothing
    I'm saying nothing

    I'm saying nothing

    I'm saying nothing..................."

    I did a lot of stuff with JSIW at the same time this character claims to have been around, but I've got to say I don't remember him... maybe Alec_lomas can shed some light?

    Is it possible that this chappy is lying? :D

    Not if you look at callum13's post above - clearly an honest guy and forthright too :wink:
  7. Don't recognise him and, like cpunk, I was active in that world at around the time he was. Doesn't mean he's not kosher, of course.
  8. But we said that to everyone so don't take it personally... :wink:

    And, of course, he would have been a tad junior to have done the long course unless he was bringing some very special skills to the table.
  10. Frankly I remain sceptical. I was attached into JSIW between '87 > 91 and I don't recall him. Students for the 'long course' were invariably linguists. There were exceptions made for specialist Int Corps guys and girls who were non-linguists and were on particular career paths.

    It's more likely that he attended either or both, of the R to I or TQ courses.

    As a benefit of the doubt he may well have attended the 'long course' post GW1 when the rules I am told, became a bit more fluid.
  11. Depending on when you were on selection for THEM, it may be that this guy was one of them CAC wallahs and not Int Corps.

    Edited to add:

    Just re-read the article. So he joined in 88, left in mid 90's and was an interrogator?

    Based on the premise that he didn't become an interrogator in 88-90 as a LCpl (or perhaps a Lt) in his first tour, and I seem to remember that you had to be min rank of Sgt to be an interrogator, he would not have been on the course until approx 93. I don't recognise the name at all and this all sounds a bit fishy to me. I also note that the article does not mention Int Corps, but military intelligence - a walt perhaps?
  12. Is he definitely ex-Army? It's possible that he's ex-RN/RM or even "ahem" RAF......
