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:

    No, it's not necessary since all army recruits are circumcised on enlistment.

    Didn't you know that?

    It is necessary for the Royal Marines because it is a condition of their enlistment that they're complete pricks.

    And you have posted this is in the Aviation forum because....................?

    Gutsy move there Dave, keen on inviting ritual abuse from all those booties who frequent this site (enter timex, stage right :wink: 0)
    The booties have been given lessons to on how to wash properly for a long time, living in very close proximity on board means this is essential. Also, the recruits cannot then say that 'they wern't taught that sarge'.

    grotty b@$tards don't get the easy ride with royal that they do in the Army (or did, it was a long time ago and a very different organisation). 8O

    Gents in all seriousness, as Handy has mentioned its to do with hygene. Many casualties in many wars have been self inflicted due to lack of personal care. By training guys early they are better prepared.

    And you know this how? Or is it just a bit of penile envy?

    Thats why you are called Pongoes................wherever you go the pong goes..


  11. What would you know? You used to work in the bedding store at Lympstone. :roll:

    The cameraman for the series completed the Commando course in entirety.

    He was 55 at the time!

    So birds can do and nigh on OAPs can do it - something tells me it's not as hard as it used to be.

    Helmet on awaiting incoming.
