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

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by sfub, Feb 9, 2010.

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 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?
     
  2. Old feckers like me harping on about '.........bring back Boxer .455, pith helmets and Field Punishment No1'
     
  3. It wasn't like this the first time around

  4. How to dry tea leaves out and re-sell them to the Arabs :)
     
  5. 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.
     
  6. Spelling, grammer and vocab would be better, fewer walts, more cads and Chubb, there would still be a Chubb...
