Famous or Infamous People in the REME

Discussion in 'REME' started by Heywood_Jablowme, May 6, 2005.

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. Benny Hill and Jim Fox are two people who were both in the REME and went on to gain notoriety and success in their fields, also Dennis Nielsen was a mass murderer who served in the Catering Corps and munched the flesh of his victims, are there any other famous or otherwise people who have served in our beloved corps and who else served in other corps/regiments? i believe there is quite a famous double olympic gold medal winning rug muncher who served in the AGC, can anyone confirm this for me?!
  2. 4 fcukin boring posts in 30 minutes, all shite and whingy, you boring t**t
  3. i thought i was sad on a friday afternoon, but if you spend your time going through statistics of how many posts i've done i suggest you need some daylight...
