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. right im not sure if this should be written here but hey

    im due to start the army on the 8th of march and have found out some this which basically take the p**s for example i was reading that squaddies are banned from student nights round town now fair enough this wont bother the older servicemen but when ya 18 like me it bothers ya i mean i know people who have been turned away from hotels clubs pubs etc after just serving there country in afghanistan or iraq it teks the p**s i mean cmon the f***ing least ya should get is a free pint.

    in america the soldiers are treat alot better and are banned from nowhere and get the upmost respect

    have any squaddies been turned away for basically serving there country??
     
  2. I should think most of us have. Banned from pubs, clubs, some hotels etc. Who gives a toss? It's the proprieters perogative at the end of the day. Tramps and dogs also get banned. Save your outrage for more important things like the paltry insurance payout you'll get for losing your legs in Afghanistan.

    Edited to add - Four of us got turned away from a bar in Cambridge for being squaddies. The doorman said 'he could tell'. After a chat I realised why - he was a full screw in the Royal Anglians! Ironic or what! On the plus side though, I didn't cry like a baby and post my supposed 'outrage' on a website.
     
  3. If you want to find out all about this, read a poem by Rudyard Kipling called Tommy........ but why in the name of Jesus would yoou want to drink with a bunch of wa.nky students.

    Here it is.......

    Tommy, by Rudyard Kipling.


    I went into a public-'ouse to get a pint o' beer,
    The publican 'e up an' sez, "We serve no red-coats here."
    The girls be'ind the bar they laughed an' giggled fit to die,
    I outs into the street again an' to myself sez I:

    O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, go away";
    But it's "Thank you, Mister Atkins", when the band begins to play,,
    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
    O it's "Thank you, Mister Atkins", when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
    They gave a drunk civilian room, but 'adn't none for me;
    They sent me to the gallery or round the music-'alls,
    But when it comes to fightin', Lord! they'll shove me in the stalls!

    For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, wait outside";
    But it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide,,
    The troopship's on the tide, my boys, the troopship's on the tide,
    O it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide.

    Yes, makin' mock o' uniforms that guard you while you sleep
    Is cheaper than them uniforms, an' they're starvation cheap;
    An' hustlin' drunken soldiers when they're goin' large a bit
    Is five times better business than paradin' in full kit.

    Then it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, 'ow's yer soul?"
    But it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll,,
    The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
    O it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll.

    We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,
    But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
    An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints,
    Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints;

    While it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, fall be'ind",
    But it's "Please to walk in front, sir", when there's trouble in the wind,,
    There's trouble in the wind, my boys, there's trouble in the wind,
    O it's "Please to walk in front, sir", when there's trouble in the wind.

    You talk o' better food for us, an' schools, an' fires, an' all:
    We'll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
    Don't mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
    The Widow's Uniform is not the soldier-man's disgrace.

    For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Chuck him out, the brute!"
    But it's "Saviour of 'is country" when the guns begin to shoot;
    An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
    An' Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool,you bet that Tommy sees!
     
  4. i suppose mate

    it still does annoy me like lol but yer ya have got a point
     
  5. I base my life on skins. I've a lightshade and cape made from a rather fetching Aldershot girl's back.
     
  6. You could try not dressing like the quintessential squaddie, starting fights, getting naked etc etc etc
     
  7. The thing is though, he's currently a quintessential civvy, piloting his own outrage mini-moke as a way of being in the club without actually being in the club.
     
  8. Allow me a LOL!! You have to be a certain age to appreciate that particular motoring ref.... or are you ex RGJ? :D
     
  9. No mate, not RGJ but had my R&R re-arranged due to a certain unique 'trapping manouevre' conducted by Sharpe's chosen men!
     
  10. ha i did say i havnt started yet i just wanted to know if what i asked was the case :D
     
  11. You get banned from areas for all sorts of reasons, don't worry about it, in a few months you won't want to be anywhere near students. Spend the time you have before joining learning what punctuation, capitalization and grammar are..... innit!
     
  12.  
  13. Nah, she was Danisssssh.
     
  14. Don't be ridiculous. It'd be no fun then.
     
  15. Louise Jensen - tour guide. I didn't even have to google that. It's ingrained. Did you know that her spinless Cypriot boyfrien, hid behind a petrol pump watching as she was dragged away by Ford and his fcuklwit oppos? He watched her getting assaulted and killed. Worm. Anyhoo, it cetainly fcuked mine and others R&R up.
