Once upon a time this was the Army Rumour Service, but it appears that the Cyber Branch of the WI has taken over. whose idea was this, Jan Hamilton's? :?

Are you not in touch with your feminine side?


But I was beginning to think we had slipped back into the old WRAC site. Mmmm, slipping back into WRAC. Happy memories.

... Joking apart, I can remember a NATO exercise being resheduled as it was going to clash with a major event of the Bielefeld Flower club.. (aka 1 (BR) Corps wives club)

I remember that the Dep Cdr was less than impressed at having to put up the guest Flower Arranger and his "friend" in his quarter. The Brig was not known for pandering to his softer side - we did NOT have a good week in the HQ..

Combat Flower Arranging or "Camouflage"...

Imagine this, you meet some totty on a night out, meet up for a few drinks in the week but for the next date she wants to have a romantic night in at yours. Handing her a Chicken Pot Noodle and can of Stella is not going to get her ridding you like Redrum.
Learning to cook is one of the best ways to find out if a lass can get her ankles behind her ears.

You chaps could learn a lot from Flower Arranging, you know. Where else could you study Form, Colour, Movement, Conditioning, Space, Balance, Scale, Proportion and Contrast. And of course you get both the classic and contemporary styles.

Now, what could be a better training for you to get your wicked way with a young lady?

(Plus did you know that the National Association of Floral Arrangement Societies raises pots of money for SSAFA Forces Help each year?)

Along with brew ******* and falling on the fat grenade, cooking is one of the few areas of expertise which EVERY squaddie has at least a modicum of experience in, be it cooking for the family at home or murdering compo and MRE's in the field. We all do it, some better than others.

What could liven this up a bit is if, to accompany the recipes, maybe a few related failure/success/cheat stories, preferably one's which end with the chef being ankle deep in seafood. (so to speak)

Funny,

I thought the 3's at the forefront of most Squaddies' minds were Sex , Stella and Scoff?

Arrse already has lots of threads devoted to the first two, so why not Scoff?

And as m'learned friend LordVanHarley points out, if you can cook, you will get laid.

By nice totty for a change :)

Hopefully the novelty will wear off and normal service will resume and you lot can get back to your crochet.

Everyone needs to eat, except Bobby Sands of course, so learning the correct way to make a pot noodle isn't such a bad thing. :wink:

Not everybody needs to arrange flowers though, or do they :?

It is a slippery slope, one day steely eyed dealers of death and the next into the old twinset and pearls with sensible shoes at the village Fete. Then of to the orient for a quick nip and tuck and the job is done.

It will all end in tears, mark my words.

Oh, in response to the early assertion about cooking giving you access to the virtues of beautiful girls. Check out your local slop's wives!
