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. I like the bit about us taking a ship which is about to be taken out of service to show of the RN's capabilities to French military students.
  3. And then there was one.

    Really is the end of an era as the last of the Cold Warriors bow out.
  4. Sure

    Never fitted for

    and certainly

    never fitted with...

    You need to qualify as a Principal Warfare Officer and then be assigned as the PWO(A). Then you get to be Guns. So when the "fetch officer" calls comes in you get to do all the finger pushing and shout 4 5 ENGAGE! ..........

    sorry I had a moment then.

  9. Sure



    gunS is plural...

    So question remains...
  10. GUNS is plural

    How many 4.5 inch GUNS do you have on a T42 or even T45... ok

    No probs enjoy the horlicks!!!

  11. At least they could chuck a Sea Dart at the enemy war canoes, a trick their new replacements can't match,
  12. You Sir have this magic gift of being a bastard with the truth.

    Give me a hint of where to send champers for Christmas!
  13. Until that point you sit in your cabin learning masses of nugatory drill, if only to try and stop the Killick Gunner looking at them quizically from the GC position when they shout ENGAGE without any rounds in the breech, hoist or loading ring.....
  14. Grey funnel line feel nostalgic for HMS Rodney.

    Sick bag anyone?

    Could get a bit bumpy in here
  15. Motto for the 42's: If it flys, it dies!

    Oh the joys of 3Q mess- right above the props, anything above 5kts and you had no chance of getting any sleep!
