Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Still think I prefer it to 200 lashes which usually killed you anyway!

    In fact I think you may just have identified where the fall in standards started ~ well done Sir!

    Quite frankly I would have preferred being tied to a post for a few hours and doing **** all than some of the delightful activities I endured at the hands of the guardroom staff.

    Field Punishment No 1 or 2 weeks RoP's 1980's style?

    I'll take FP No 1 ta very much.

  5. Can be fun as long as you're careful, have a safety word. Banana is a good word.

  6. Some interesting stuff on there.
  7. By the looks of him Crozier had their rations while they were tied up. A nasty piece of work from those accounts.

    Was Crozier the chap who was base commandant at Etaples during the 1917 mutiny?
  9. Agreed, compared to knees to the chest on a pudding mat, kneeling gun drill with heavy weights, running round with jerry cans or the best one I saw which was fully knock a 6ft angle iron picket into the ground with a sledge hammer and then dig it up in full kit - FP No1 looks like a piece of piss !!

    That's the bloke, thank you.

    And you are right, the events at Etaples in 1917 are a little murky to say the least but I suppose that is to be expected.

    IIRC the early part of the mutiny was caused by Aussies being given FP No1 and their ANZAC mates getting a little pissed off by it.
  11. Ooh nasty. Makes my two weeks jankers for getting caught sniffing a female officer's bike saddle seem quite tame.
  12. Considering that's what happened to Nigs in the Gun Park, it's a piece of piss compared to hand bumpering the ceiling with a double, headed bumper!

    What was Field Punishment No 2 then?

    Tea and stickies with the WRVS?
