Branch nicknames

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by D-Runner, Mar 4, 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. Im joining the RLC as a driver communication specialist my cousin has started calling me blanket stacker, Is this driver/ communication specialists nickname or is he wrong?

    What other nicknames do branches have?
     
  2. You will be called many things, especially if you put lots of weight on and have a large V of different coloured material sewn into the back of your trousers to make them fit.
     
  3. You are not going to be a stacker my ol' son you are about to become a fat stinking fucking trog. The only reason you have comm spec tagged onto the title of your CEG is the fact that you can string two words together and are regarded as a specialist who can communicate. You are about to become a 'no-trade'. My Mrs can drive and she is never off the fucking phone........you do the maths. In summary your cousin is wrong.

    Stacker refers to those fine and upstanding men of the RAOC specifically Sup Specs (or whatever they were fucking called)

    Trog refers to those smelly and torpid little insects that used to inhabit the Royal Transport Corps (bring it on) and specifically drivers of whatever persuasion.

    At the moment you are just a fucking civvy
     
  4. BPS666, you are DRLC (but probably taller) and I claim my five pounds
     
  5. So drivers on Road Warriors are boring yet you want to do the very same job?
     
  6. Eh :?

    I respect what the RLC and the danger they face plus its my choosen branch, im starting to find this program a wee bit repetitive and boring. Mabe they should make a program about the Infantry make for better TV i think.
     
  8. Surely theres an Arrsepedia page dedicated to this ??
     
  9. VG, Whilst I agree that both the sentiment and context were correct you have inadvertently called them "Stupid Fat Loggie Cunts" It should read "Fat Stupid Troggy No-Trade Cunts".

    Sorry to be such a pedant.
     
  10. It's his right to waste a space for someone who wants in, and it's his right to bitch and whine for years if and when he gets in.
     
  11. blanket stackers is the nickname normally given to stores trades.
     
  12. I might be reading into this the wrong way but surely you wouldnt choose a job/role/trade you would be BORED in?! 8O
     
  13. Didn't pick up on the sarcasm?
    I'll make it blatant then, he's a cunt :D
