German soldiers in sense of humour shocker

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. The Bundeswehr bosses recently banned a shop at Camp Marmal from selling these t-shirts. Wearing them has also been banned.


    Translation: "Thou Shalt Not Steal".

    A previously banned t-shirt read "Granddad never got this far east".

    All this has caused a minor ruckus in the German media. Poor Germans. If they hadn't invaded Poland, they wouldn't have to worry about being so politically correct.
  2. 'A previously banned t-shirt read "Granddad never got this far east".'

    That's funny, shame that some prissy PC type bans them.
  3. I'm going to nominate myself as the mong to ask which country are the oil tankers representing and who's in the tornado? And i take it they are coming from Iraq? Or am i just a complete bone mong? 8O (don't answer that :wink: )
  4. Yes.
  5. The boxheads destroyed two hijacked fuel tankers in AFG.


    You may recall the German defence minister resigned over it.
  6. Why were there so many Afghans in the tanker?
  7. Thanks for confirming that Minister :D

    And cheers for the helpful reply CQMS, Love the cringeworthy humor of it!
  8. Anyone have a link to or an image of those 'Grandad' T=shirts teh German's printed? Sounds funny and I'd love to take a peek at one.
  9. Nice one Herr Boxhead, like the T shirts, great stuff.
  10. I feel we have to stand together, mongs against the world...

  12. Gremlin

    Gremlin LE Good Egg (charities)

    Sod the pictures, does anyone know where I can get an original one from???

    (My Grandfather didn't get that far East, but my Great Uncle did!)
  13. They didn't like our Adolph Hitler - World Tour T Shirts either. Shame really because they had London and Moscow crossed out, always made me laugh.
  14. Here is the tanker video btw.
