Happy Birthday, RAF

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. Happy Birthday to the RAF, and commiserations to the Army and RN for losing their brightest and best to create the most awesome fighting service the Country has ever had.

    blue-sophist LE Good Egg (charities)

    Huzzah as well! :D
  3. You saying the RAF was founded on April Fools Day?? *snigger*

    Maybe a opportunity to post this yet again.

  4. Pip pip, what-ho chaps and hurrah for those magnificent men in their flying machines. And the birds of course, yes, definately the birds.
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always thought that April Fools jokes were de trop after 12:00?
  6. Well, they often fill me with awe. They're absolutely awful, in fact.
  7. I'm sure it was merely meant to reinforce the point. By thinking about the RAF, the other party would instantly think about the Battle of Britain, Dambusters and the Amiens Prison bombing, and realize the importance of such qualities in the execution of warfare.
  8. Happy birthday to all crabs.

    Except loadies.
  9. Unfortunately the longest running April fool ever :D
  10. Happy Birthday,RAF.Obviously of an age when birthdays still matter :(
  13. And not forgetting the bombing of the Torrey Canyon (in which Napalm was used, even though the UK "had no stocks of Napalm and would never use it" according to an earlier govt diktat to the MOD).

    Edited for twatish punctuation.
