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:

  2. All this decommissioning will end in tears.
  3. Yes Very....... :eek:(
  4. What exactly do we have left?

    can anyone provide a snapshot of what we had in terms of fleet size, say 1982 (year I joined Army) and now.

    I would be interested in seeing how it compares.

    Is it going to visit St Nazaire? I'd pay to watch that!
  6. We have all Cunards fleet that can be painted grey at the drop of a hat.

    I believe that they used to match Inf Bns to Surface units one for one. 52 reg Bns when I left in 88. the same number of proper grey war canoes!

  11. Nothing to add to the thread, but I just had to say I love your avatar.
  12. However Cunards fleet is crewed by jonny foreighner so yes we'd have the ships but no one to drive em!

    Thanks. It was a gift of a photograph. I doubt he realised what he was standing in front of. Sums him up really - apart from the fact that cocks can be nice to look at, are useful and you can get pleasure out of them. Unlike that twunt!
  14. Yes, end of the month, can give you exact dates tomorrow.
  15. Ugly, pm incoming.
