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. From Army son overseas:

    S***** is doing really well and now has 6 well established teeth, can stand up with the assistance of a table, can crawl at speed and can do assisted pull-ups on the kitchen furniture (showing definite potential for the marines!).

    My reply:

    Naahhh! You've got it all wrong! Stands with the help of a table? Crawls from A to B? Sounds like good potential officer material with the Cavalry! Having said that I accept that six teeth is definitely a plus for the Booties!

    Any other advice for youngsters and how to assess their early learning for a future career in the forces? :D :D :D
  2. Happy to sit in a shitty nappy for hours on end? COP
  3. Eat whatever is given to you.
  4. Lobs of tables. Does things other kids refuse to do, at twice the speed.
    Out runs all the other kids.
    Eats whatever.
    Always good with the ladies.

    Airborne to the core

    SK :D
  5. Whinges and crys when it dosent get its own way
  6. Can't string a coherent sentence together, can barely walk, has poor control of bodily functions. Mental faculties at only the most basic level and instinctively goes for the breasts.

    I don't see any familiar traits, myself...
  7. refuses to do anything after 10.00am unless it is fed tea and cake.
    (cos it may not make it to lunch-time)

  8. Sleeps all day.

    Sounds like me when I dont have any duties.

    Will do well at Sandhurst.
  10. Can stand up while being assisted, crawl at speed and also do pull up's while again being assisted - definately a candidate for the marines. :D :D
