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. Just trying to work what the record is for gongs. Not what you're thinking though!

    I know of a thoroughly decent gentleman who has just completed his Colour Service. This gentleman had the unfortunate knack of been in the right place at the wrong time (or any variation of) for 22 years (his trade is currently deployed in over 25 countries).

    His sum total of chest decoration? 15 years undetected crime and HM's 50th.

    Can any 22 year man not on restrictive service beat that?
  2. mmmmm, i know a certain Officer at our place, who has been in 20 years and has Jubilee and thats it! Not downgraded or anything.
  3. My father in law got out with didn't get caught & Bosnia.

    It happens.

    Oh, and a certain SSgt in my Corps after 18 years has the QGJ. Thats it!
  4. Damn, that is piss poor. Even my dog got his GSM for NI!

    Still, saves a bomb on mounting & miniatures.
  5. Had a colleague who got out after 26 years (just prior to the Golden Jubilee) with nowt on his chest (missed the LS&GC due to being caught in female accom too often).
  6. My father retired at 55 before the Battle of Golden Jubilee with not so much as a single gong. Now thats slacking for you!
  7. Last CO of 27 Regt only had the Battle of Jubilee too.
  8. My SO1 has battle of the Jubilee after nearly 28 years
  9. General Melchett

    General Melchett LE Moderator

    Lucky buggers, save's on cost of mounting.
  10. got told that I may be the only one in the army (non officer) with a MBE but will never get the not got caught

    Thats a record to be proud of!
