COMMCEN Ops

This clip just makes us all look like a bunch of idiots.
It is a crying shame that today we found out that yet another one of our number has given his life doing a proper job. But at the same time we show the rest of the Army that these spanners are running the Operation room.

so when the combat sandbags do the peter kay spoof they get applauded and loved by all. but when the remf scalies do it they get slated!!! doesnt really make sense to me, and the infantry are losing a hell of a lot more bods than the signals.
its no wonder the signals now have a reputation for being a bunch of whinging cnuts these days when you cant even have a bit of harmless fun on ops.
Everyone has to let of steam one way or another............................

Why REMF's? As far as I am aware the insurgents are actually Alles Uber das Platz so what counts these days as Rear Ech?

well seeing as my last post seemed to stirred up a bit of a hornets nest lets clarify

inappropriate time? this video was most probably made a while before the shatt al incident and has only just made it onto youtube. i did not serve with lee hopkins but from all the comments made on his thread on here, he seems to have been a top bloke and a sad loss to all concerned. RIP. but would most probably have seen the funny side of the video
REMFS is just old school terminology, and as these guys are apparently commcen/ops room bods it seems safe to assume they are with headquarters staff. Does not make them any safer 'rear ech' or not.
Finally my point was, if you can get out from behind the sandbags then the tensions need to be released, just because people choose to make a vid like this (good or bad) does not make them tw@ts and a bad example to the corps. let them have their moment of fun on an otherwise sh1t op!!

Rant over.................good vid guys, make sure you all get back in on piece.

Although the timing of the initial post may be slightly upsetting to some, I think whats more upsetting is the fact that some people on here just whinge about our lads and lasses having fun and making a playful video in their precious spare time.

I no doubt think that those people who are whinging probably haven't done an Op Tour in their life.

Leave them alone and let them have their five minutes of fun. Its not hurting anyone and has nothing to do with you.

Ops Room and Commcen: not really the same are they now!

Are these tw@s on glue, no wonder every one thinks that scaleys are cnuts. You well earned your telic medal there you scum bags!!
Going by your quote it looks like you aren't aware its a spoof of the music video to the track being played. Have a look at the proper one (listed near it on youtube) and you might see it for what it is. Even if it wasnt a spoof, its still funny on its own merit, just a bunch of lads letting off a bit of steam. Fcuk being on an Op Tour with a member of the morale police such as yourself.

I have been unable to view the response to this post until now.

While I expected a reaction I did not expect some of the comments received.

Firstly when I posted this link, the deaths of the servicmen (and woman), was only just coming to light. As I recall it had not even been released as to where the incident had happened never mind what cap bages were involved!

I may be corrected on that in future posts, but let me assure you, I certainly was not aware that one of our own and a former collegue, had been sadly taken away from us.

I thought the vid was cheesey and posted the link so those that know the people involved can take the p1ss and get them crated. I did not expect them to be ridiculed for letting off steam.

Lets face facts it was made well before the infortunate events of the last 10 days.

Good video! Ignore the abuse, it was done for a laugh and did its job.
 
#18
Good laugh. But Id check their sick chits.
 
#19
God...

People whinging because some guys on ops have a laugh. They didnt do anything wrong, they didnt break opsec or psyops...didnt show any of the kit...

Let the guys have some fun, we all know its stressful enough on ops without some idiots who are sat at home with family and friends, in a comfy armchair with their feet up getting in a strop about it.

Let the guys have some fun, its not as if their compromising operations by making a video and putting it on the web.

Rant over...
