Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Remember the "garment retailers" that used to visit cookhouses all over BFG? Selling top fashion house labels such as "NAF NAF", "PETROLEUM" ETC. They even sold tartan trousers at one point, making a particular saturday night in the Pleasuredome look like Burns night :D

    Are they still plying their trade and has their fashion items improved?
  2. They used to come to the cookhouse in SEE, Arborfield, back 1994/5. Absolutely no idea if they still do?? I'd forgotten about them until you posted!
  3. Oh yes,.... sign off 3 or 4 cheques so when pay day comes around they'd collect, and I would forget and wonder where the feck all my pay was??? - those and my mess bill made for some lean months....

    Yep, they are still about. Dodgy seconds at ridiculously high prices.
  5. I set up a direct debit through Sparkasse at one point, for 4or 5 instalments. They sold some jeans with a cartoon character on the arrse pocket, but i cant remember what the name was. :oops:
