ARRSE Foreign Legion

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by jumpinjarhead, May 22, 2012.

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. After posing the question about foreigners joining the 10th ARRSE Regiment and receiving at best a lukewarm response, I propose the formation of the ARRSE Foreign Legion (if it has not already been done).

    WHat say you foreign ARRSERs or UK ARRSERs who want a new name and identity?

  2. From now on I'd like to be known as Betty. But only on weekends.
     
  3. Yes.

    Can I be a Command Sergeant Major please?

    Sounds like a great position.

    All those stripes as well.

    :salut:

    PS; Are you doing loads of medals too?

  9. "Miriam Reene of 33 Croft Street, East Finchley. She turned me down for Dave Freeman."

    This joke is now available on iPad, iPod, iNg-tong-iddle and iPo.
    (Grams: Sudden huge battle, shouts, yells, muskets, cannon, thunder of cavalry hooves, etc. military bugle calls sped up.)

  10. I think a spelling test would also be of use.
     
  11. Great! Do we get to live in Beau Peep castles made of mud?
     
  12. Not so much the legion des estrange as the legion des strange I fear. But at least we'd be abroad and out of harms way...
