Eureka moment

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. Sitting here in a miasma of pish, rinsing my incontinence pants and trying to steal enough oxygen to forestall the men with coffins, I have a Eureka moment arising from my useless past. Share it and make the necessary insults. I enjoy them!
  2. Damn, thought this was going to be a thread about pornographic Swedish Weather Girls!

  3. Blimey ORC - uniforms were tight-fitting in those days!
  4. TB - 1st break in training. Still lots of puppy fat QM staff were reckoning would be lost!
  5. ORC - puppy fat is gone by teens - not 32 year old SNCOs!!! :D
  6. Picture of me and Mum? Aged 19. Just finished 3 years in Upper 6th. Very fattening. At 32 after 11 years in sybil Sgts' Mess, blubber was coming back.
  7. ORC - either you were the Sgt's mess waiter or you were promoted at 21, which, even for a chimp, seems to be very young!!
  8. I hada Eureka moment a couple of weeks ago in Thailand. Loose wet stools + cheap toilet paper = brown finger syndrome. Eureka!
  9. TB - I'm not allowed to display quals but I was sub sgt two days after my 21st birthday. There followed 8 years to Ssgt and 4 years as one of them. 6 as WOII. That's how it was in those days. Very few even knew the colour of the ink on Army ed certs and I had been lucky at college. I seemed to get into small and later 1 man band dets. I was sneaky and got units to request me by name when reporting crimes for us to deal with. My approach was that promotion reduced the number of (idjuts) who could tell me what to do rather than any wish to be a leader. All stemmed from being beasted on square and seeing sergeants in their mess eating buttery toast. I was told they were sybil and I decided that was for me.
