COLONIAL GENTLEMEN IN SERVICE OF HMG

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:

    Well now this is a fine idea...

    Where are all the expat Aussies and Kiwis working in the UK?

    Any good jobs OHMS with the British?  Any bad ones?

    Seeking anyone called Calkin, Blackman, Bellis,

    Go the black Caps!!!!
     
  2. Bellis believed to be back 'down under', after leaving our 'special' Sqn.
    Don't know others, RAF?

    Blue, you are an  idiot ... everyone knows the expat Kiwis are all living in Knightsbridge now ......

    And the aussies are all in Suffolk I heard .....

    Earls Court!

    PFAH!
     
  6. Well anyone who's been anywhere near London in the last 20 years can tell you. All the Australians are working behind the bars of our 'fine' capital. It must be something to do with not needing a work permit/visa or the close proximity of booze in the work place that does it  ;D

    Actually it's all bloody South Africans now (their economy has been falling apart since the ANC got in) where as the Aussies are all enjoying boom years and near full employment.  Incidentally, they ALL live in Putney.

    When are we going to cut loose the near colonials?

    "Scottish Defence Force" has a certain ring to it, even if all the mail would have to be re-directed to MCTC.  

    And surely Wales could fulfill some independant military role....NBC test area perhaps?

    And I still like the idea of "sign 'em all up and they won't fight us".  Mesopotamian Rifles anyone?
