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. Seems like President Xi Jinpinghas been spying on my old unit. Been doing it like that for decades.
     
  2. Not with my lot who, while on exercise, felt it appropriate to hold themselves a regimental dinner in the field while keeping the lads in trenches, but in order they were not aware they called 48 hours of NBC drills. Top blokes, no really!

  3. Don't think I will be taking any advice about the officer/soldier relationship from either the Indescribably boring or the red army...that's all.

    Can't think of a worse punishment than being made to spend even more time with the Orifice's that I had avoided at all costs during the day.

  8. I suppose that at a time like that, you wished you could lay your hands on a red tunic and white webbing.

  12. Considering the Chinese Army is pretty much based on the British Army of the 1800 where your fathers standing guarentees the pips on your shoulder and the more money you have the higher you climb, I can see why there senior officers have been told to "get real".

    My old CO joined at 16 as a Jock and ended up a Colonel. To this day he is still one of the boys.
     
  13. They have Jocks in the Red Army? Who'd a thought it.
    Go back to Mao's idea and have no ranks (although that didn't quite pan out)

    Doesn't sound like a problem to me. Go to any Training Camp and you'll find all ranks eating together and frequently sharing accom.

    I've also eaten in a PLA junior ranks canteen. Whilst on business in China, near Humen, my boss and I took a shortcut to a military museum through the middle of a PLA camp. Being curious bastards we poked about a bit watched some JNCO's learning drill and then joined a queue for scoff. We got some odd looks - 2 Europeans in a queue of Chinese sailors but nobody actually questioned what we were up to.
