ARRSE, The 1939-45 Version. No Spivs Allowed.

#1
I was thinking the other day (I don't do it very often) what ARRSE would have been like in the Second World War. I know they wouldn't have computers apart from Enigma Bombes, but what would the discussions have been like.
Boot threads would have been... short

It's all about the Prime Minister...

Current fighting reports....

RIP threads all over the place.

What else?

There wouldnt be any problems with non PC replies, it didnt exist.


So, johnny Raghead or, I say, that fellow over there is a queer, would be fine.

Spelling, grammer and vocab would be better, fewer walts, more cads and Chubb, there would still be a Chubb...

Jargon might be different - desert flowers for example...

The word association game would be a bit bland.
