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. TOMORROW, 4th SEPTEMBER there is a one-off chance to see the newly restored print of this classic 1954 film at Cinemas up and down the Country. This is part of the British Summer of Film festival. And the universal starting time seems to be 18.30hrs.

    here doggy!
  2. I wonder what the doggy will be called?
  3. I would hope that the dog will be called Nigger. I mean, that was its name , wasn't it?
  4. With a 'U' rating, that seems unlikely?
  5. 18:17 (617) should be more of an apt time 8)
  6. On my DVD the doggy is called Nigger. It's wiped on the TV Channels.

    Apres Moi Le Deluge..
  7. Dam! have they not kept the dog's name for the remake? political crapness! that was the little fella's name!!! :x
  8. "Here dog of afro-carribean descent, good boy"
  9. Should I let them know of my new house rule?

    If the dog isn't called Nigger, I won't watch it. If I am some how conned and only find out half way through the film that the said hound is not correctly named, I will walk out.

    Simple enough.
  10. And the code word for a successful strike.?
  11. I gather the dog is named accurately.
  12. And I quote;

    " Goner 'A' Apple".......

    " It's Nigger - IT'S GONE "

    Acting Wg - Cdr G.P. Gibson, 617 Sqn

    This officer served as a night bomber pilot at the beginning of the war and quickly established a reputation as an outstanding operational pilot. In addition to taking the fullest possible share in all normal operations, he made single-handed attacks during his 'rest' nights on such highly defended targets as the battleship ' Tirpitz' then completing in Wilelmshaven....

    On conclusion of his third operational tour, Wing-Commander Gibson pressed strongly to be allowed to remain on operations and he was selected to command a squadron then forming for special tasks. Under his inspiring leadership, this squadron has now executed one of the most devastating attacks of the war - the breaching of the Mohne and Eder dams....

    Wing Commander Gibson has completed 170 sorties, involving more than 600 hours' operational flying. Throughout his operational career, prolonged exceptionally at his own request, he has shown leadership, determination and valour of the highest order.
