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. I have a wrist compass with the markings"ref no 68/107-8171 serial no 7940/bhs/40482".
    The ex-blanket stacker that gave it to me said it was a pilots compass, other source on the web indicates it is a para compass. can any expert give me some more info. :mrgreen:
  2. What are you doing with kit you can't even recognise. Bit like a medic with a field dressing or an RLC gipper with a bar of soap.
  3. If it has a canvass strap and a black cover over the compass, it is a bit of kit that was in an aircrew survival pack.
  4. Or a Para with a pen ??? :lol:
  5. Strength of a Workhorse
    Speed of a Racehorse

    Brains of a rocking horse :lol:
  6. cheers Lord F!
  7. Or indeed, a computer..

  8. Your obviously a sweaty loggy who sits on his backside all day seeing how many NAAFI pies you can eat.

    Bet you wear the T-Shirt 'Supply or Die'
  9. Make sure you clean all the turd from that bed pan. There's a good little nursey. Poof.
