Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  2. Is that the RA Mess hidden behind the trees?
  3. I so need to go to this event next year! :p
  4. Is that Prince in the middle?
  5. The bandsman in the background of one of the images is certainly military...
  6. Sir,

    Following a recent late night, rather ill-advised and (so it would Transpire), ill-fated croquet wager, I found myself dispossessed of my snuffbox in a shrubbery. I was assured that though the hour was late, there was a local retailer that would serve as an ad hoc tobacconist – Messrs Londis & Co.

    Once there, I discovered the establishment to be a garishly lit "super-market" and I expected that my friends were most amused at having directed me there. Nevertheless, my face had begun to twitch in a most distressing fashion and I was obliged by necessity to enter.

    Having waited my turn in a queue (composed of manual labourers and drunkards who repeated the same peculiar words: “Ten Elbee") I asked the girl behind the counter (dressed in a manner more appropriate to a scullery-maid than the proprietress of a mercantile) if I could see the selection of dry fine medicated snuffs. I sensed some level of antagonism had entered the woman's demeanour, and as the hour was late decided to simply ask for Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Camphor and Menthol Fine Kendal Brown. At this, the woman began to shout aggressive colloquialisms. Dumbfounded, I could think of nothing to defuse the situation save to repeat what I had heard from the soused lackeys previous to me: "Ten Elbee?". I was presented with a plastic wrapped silver package marked Lambert & Butler, which I later discovered contained poor quality cigarettes.

    I shall not be so ready to use a service revolver in lieu of a mallet
    again, let me assure you.

  7. Excluding the two representatives on the left, perhaps?

    They look like low-level supermarket managers.
  8. What the Fcuk would you know about being in a Mess of any sort? Mincing about in the Dining Hall at Cadet Camp with all your other little self-abusing chums does not count. :roll:

    Grown any hair yet? Or did you decide you don't really want to be in the military after all and joined the RAF?
  9. Eh?

    They do. No need to get shitty about it.
