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:

    Simple solution to recruitment problems. Just borrow an old navy tradition and bring back the Press Gang. Anyone who is on the streets wearing a burberry baseball cap gets lifted and automatically conscripted - whisked out to the cuds, issued gear and trained. When the tree huggers come to the camp to complain, lift and conscript them as well. Once all are under mil law there will be no more complaints. If said tree huggers are old, obese or otherwise unfit to serve in the best army going, then I am sure that they could be used as figure 11 & 12s. ('Targets fall when hit')

    I am sure that one of the major political parties will pick this up as a major election manifesto item.

  2. Works for me.
  3. its so simple it might just work

    as an aside does burburry come in DPM :?:
  4. Think I prefer the idea of using the neds (insert regional variation) as Fig 11's rather than actually having the little shytes in green. Besides what use would all our wagons be if they're all on bricks cause the wheels have been half-inched.

    Edited for my shyte spelling!
  5. About as much use as most of them are now!
