Do you feel like a gladiator?

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. Gladiators larking about in a war zone .... it's not big and it's not clever, says Aussie Colonel.
  2. I can't think why the Aussie officer is so steamed. :? None of the habits he cites that were observed in a tactical environment sound that serious.
  3. Tend to agree with the Digger Col - not exactly the "ice cold fury of professionalism" that modern conflicts require...
  4. I wouldn't mind to have a feel of `that jet of gladiators
  5. Bet it was great crack knocking golf balls into Taliban territory though.

  6. My bold, does the antipodean Col actually know what a Gladiator is and how they were treated and what their life style was? I doubt it quite measures up.

  7. In other words, discipline has gone to shit.

    Without discipline, the same thing would happen in any modern Army.

    Should be thankful they aren't raping kids and murdering civvies like the yanks.
  8. A fair point.
  9. I know her. That's an old pic, but you definitely still would.
  10. I couldn't eat a whole one.
  11. But you are a lady and ladies eating ladies is just not right is it?

  12. I can hear the sound of a padre ringing the police.
  13. Australian soldiers in Afghanistan have been caught sunbathing in tactical positions, hitting golf balls into Taliban territory and greeting helicopters "in thongs (flip-flops) and T-shirts".

    Sounds like the opening credits to a modern day M*A*S*H*.

    Like the way they had to clarify the whole "thongs" thing...

    treated like slave labour, bone repetative jobs, crap food and not one glimpse of lucy lawlesses decolletage. plus you die half way through the storyline.

    does that muppet have no sense of esprit de corps and unit morale?
