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. I'd rather be a fat pie eating cunt, in the RLC than be a crab.

    Hope this helps.
  2. Would I have to buy my own plastic loafers?
  3. I got dicked around for 9 years by the RAF, no thanks , the attraction of another term as a lifer SAC does not appeal
  4. is this a wind up?
  5. Oh yes, where do I sign? Can I skip basic because I was an air cadet? So long JPA!...oh wait...
  6. Well one out of four isn't too shabby old chap!

    I'd rather be Stabtiffy2b... and he's a cunt!
  7. ..or you could give them a ring.

    Who knows, you could find yourself doing something useful regarding current Ops.
  8. Follow the link and you get:

    and this is an intelligence unit? :slow:

    Still if they take useless old fat knackers there could be hope for me yet! :D
  9. Did i read RAF and intelligence in the same sentence, or has the cider gone straight to my head?

    I've just got through to it.

    Looks interesting although I can't really imagine why the RAF needs interpreters and language int people. I would have thought that talking Pashto and Arabic was an ground forces job.

    Not that a crab could not be good at it etc.

    I always thought RAF int involved clever bods staring at the photo product of U2's and the like and worrying about technical/tactical aspects of other peoples aeroplanes.
  11. Being serious they need people to sit in forty year old aircraft for 12 hours or more at a stretch listening to Taliban cellphone conversations.

    An important job for sure.

    Snag to my mind is that this:

    Is as old as these beauties:
    If you're going to a classic car rally and you break down on the A5 it's rather less likely to be fatal than if your forty year old Nimrod falls to bits en-route to Talibanistan...
  12. They can accomadate those ones too!
  13. So you just need to join the RLC and you've acheived your goal.
  14. Differnece is EX_STAB that the nimrod is a 40 year old design, not a 40 year old airframe

    At least I hope not :?
