Countryfile on BBC1 - 05 Jul 09

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. Last Sunday's Countryfile featured 2RTR firing their CR2s on Castlemartin Ranges.

    It was only a short clip and focussed on the wildlife but it reminded me of all the fun and the bad weather we had!

    It will be on iPlayer.

    Hm. On 4 July I headed off to Welsh Wales isn't it for a spot of R&R. As we passed through the toll booths, I clocked a handful of CR2s on transporters. Tac signs suggested to me they were maily 2 Tp B Sqn but since I am not overly familiar with modern tac signs... Would I be right in guessing these were those 2RTR tanks returning home?

    On the way back home on Saturday, I couldn't help but notice a bridge on the M4 somewhere near Cardiff IIRC had an 80 ton weight limit. Would I be right in thinking this is specifically because they don't like CR2s on transporters bunched up nose to tail on the bridge?
  6. AFTM if the c/s was in square then it would have been 6 Tp CYCLOPS! :wink:

    It was in a square. In my day, that meant B Sqn but I understand you people have strange Squadron designations. ISTR 20 and 22 but I was concentrating in avoiding the cavalry charge as everybody coming out of the toll booths fought for the outside lane.
  8. Yeah tell me about it! :roll: Don't worry it confuses the fcuk out everyone else as well mate - 'I say is that A Sqn'? 'No it's BADGER' get the jist? CYCLOPS square, EGYPT circle, FALCON Rectangle and NERO diamond! :wink:
