Big Vern on TV

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'm just watching, with open mouth, Big Vern Rees running a holiday camp in the C4 programme "Wakey Wakey Campers".

    Shame this is the last in the series.

    I still have a combat jacket with my course report on the back, written by Big Vern.

    One word, "Cnut".
  2. Ah "Vern DOP's" I didnt get a course report as he RTUd me...........

    Boot polished his binos when I returned.

  3. On a course I was on, he taught us how to judge crest clearance by the "sieg heil" method.

    Bit of a prob when the German exchange officer found us in a clearing laying out a gun position, looking like a rerun of the Nuremburg rallies .. .

    I also remember him telling a couple of lads on the Adv OPA cse they would fail 'cause their BC was a cnut. He was right, on both counts.
  4. This was a real programme? Are you sure it wasn't some investigative journalism into his business activities. ;)
  5. Was he selling them Barbour jackets and "reasonably priced" tailored suits?


  6. Arrghh the suits! Does my memory play tricks or did this tailoring business bring together Vern and J___ P____ one of the great characters from the HAC?
