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. towards the gap a gnats knacker fellas!!!!
  2. Is that bloke on the river bank mooning at the enemy?
  3. Good skills, must be the new demolition gun !
  4. think it may be a cone-heid looking for his teeth after telling the lads the brdge needs to go 5mm to the left. :eek:
  5. Nah, the recce Sgt would have sited it so stop your whining!
  6. obviously but we ALL know the c0ck stands that cone-heids can get about dimensions & distances. :p
  7. There is a time and place to get excited about distances & dimentions. I was constructing a 125 man ITC in Kosovo and the troopy set the thing out using a dems ladder 8O :?

    Suprisingly enough, the Clk Wks (C) wasn't overly happy about this and things had to be stripped out as they were well out.

  8. :? :? :? :?

    ahhhhh, but who the feck would let a Troopy loose on a construction task, in kenya we had ours shovelling shit all day long & he loved it. :D
  9. You allowed him to use a shovel? You lot are trusting!
  10. on another kenya tour one of our staffy's got acquainted with a shovel while he was having a p1sh. 8O
  11. That's not a real bridge - it's ABLE can of pop in one hand and remote in the other
  12. Regardless of whether it's a proper bridge, I still wouldn't fancy constructing it under fire.
  13. Nope nor me think I would have a bergan full of spare underpants
