Found: An Army Legend

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by crabtastic, Feb 8, 2006.

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:


    Can you even begin to imagine what kind of a fecking monster this old boy must have been in the Naafi Bar when he was a Tom? Think of all the fcuked-up, repugnant sh1t you may have eaten/drunk as part of a man test- would it even come close to this?

    I'll bet cold hard cash that it was this very soldier who also pioneered such traditions as skiffing, swamping, freckles and filling his foreskin with coins of the realm. (I bet he used the old pennies too- he probably thought pound coins were for poofs.)
  2. Top Bloke.
    Saw a Ray Mears thing about jungle survival last night, had an old (Spam) Survival Instructor from Vietnam days, who popped out some MRE from 1969 - fresh as a daisy-ish. Result.
  3. At least he wont get bird flu from it!
  4. S'nuffin, I' ve eaten fifty year old pussy, although by contrast, I did feel slightly ill next day.
  5. bet they sent all the wan k menus.


  6. The orginal Manchester 'Fight Club', the Ardee! He must be nails!
  7. Proper chap,looks the part as well
  8. Some ungrateful septic c0ck has asked if there are vegie meals on the comments!!! (talking about the Ration link above)
  9. Also notice how he's discribed as 'Former soldier', which is technically true. However he left the army before he was married, over fifty years ago. It doesn't have him down as former anything else or retired anything else does it? Has he spent his whole married life unemployed or was the army pension after a few years service so good back then that he never had to work again?

    Am I going to be labled 'Former soldier' for the rest of my life? Am I not a human being too? He's not obviously, the chickin proves that, but me?
  10. Following this story, a french film crew decided to interview Mr Lailey.
    Arriving un announced on a friday evening they rang his doorbell and waited for several minutes.
    Suddenly the sound of a large object could be heard falling down the stairs and Mr Lailey's silouhette was seen to right itself on the other side of the glass door.
    The french rang the bell again and the door was flung open by Mr Lailey who was stood, in his underpants and with a black eye.
    The conversation between Mr Lailey and the french director is documented below.
    "Monsieur Lailey?"
    "Er, bonjour, est que tu Monsieur Lailey?"
    "I am how you say....sorry. Are you mister Lailey?"
    "Bllooooooargh!" (audible sound of vomitting)
    "Ah, merde!"

    At this point eye witnesses say that Mr Lailey snapped out of his drunken stupor and became overtly agressive.
    "Ooooh he became right nasty, he did. And he's got a temper on him, eeeeh his mouth's as dirty as his cap!" Said nextdoor neighbour Mrs Ada P1ssbucket.

    Mr Lailey then adopted the stance of a 1920s prize fighter and attempted various moves of fancy footwork that all resulted in loss of stability. Armed only with stained Y fronts, a gold necklace and various sovereign rings, Mr Lailey proclaimed.
    "Ya see that Mike Tyson? Rocky Marciano would've cut 'im to ribbons!"
    Following an enquiry from the French crew as to Mr Lailey's mental health, he stripped off the last remnants of his clothes, bellowed,
    "IT'S THE NAZ-EES THEY'VE COME BACK!" And launched into a violent attack.
    When the police arrived Mr Lailey was stood naked, covered in blood and urinating on the bodies of the French. When he was arrested, Mr Lailey's only quote was.
    "That's them telt!"
  11. Nice one, Centurion.
  12. Compo IS good for you, even if out of date. When the nippers were small, used to feed them compo sausages when on nappy duty. Mrs B could never understand my diligence till she came home early one night. Ouch, that DID hurt. Nippers still love the cardboard sausages but not partial to babies head, yet.
  13. I think the pertinent point about the chap being a "former soldier" is that I just can't imagine that the idea of voluntarily leaving a tin of chicken for 50 years before eating it, would ever occur to anyone other than a squaddie. (For further evidence see the "Squaddies trying to behave like normal people" thread.)

    On the other hand, looking at his Doris, you could perhaps understand any longing he has to bring forth his appointment with the Grim Reaper.
  14. Just goes to show that tinned chicken ages better than your average Doris.
