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. Our new 'pals' over at urban 75 are having a poll on what we wuld do if the commies had invaded in the 60's.
    There results are interesting (if almost predicatble), so i thouhgt it might be interesting to see what the members on here thought

    And for our resident U75 monitors, this is not an invite for members to invade your forums, merely to highlight one of you current issues so that we can contrast views.

    regards

  2. Shades of 'Life of Brian,' crib scene "what exactly is a balm anyway?"
     
  3. I wasn't even a gleam in my dad's eyes at the time...

    Hence the something else.

    Otherwise i'd probably have been nuked or fight them on the beaches.
     
  4. I'd 'balme' the SPAMs, but it sounds a bit gay, so I'll raise the red flag over Rotherhamgrad in :

    The People's Republic of South Yorkshire!


    Eh oop!
     
  5. Sorry, fat fingers! 8O

    For balme the spams, read blame the spams! :D
     
  6. I would have fought them, but as we'd have been very probably nuked I'd probably would have ended up as a very minor component of the resultant massive belts of fall-out.

    However the buggers would have been nuked back as some of our V-bombers would have got through and dropped large buckets of instant sunshine on Moscow, Kiev,Omsk and Minsk etc
     
  7. Unfortunately, I suspect that many U75'ers see "Defence of the realm" as the ONLY reason for the existence of HM Forces. That being the case, as the USSR/Warsaw Pact is no longer a threat, we should all be de-mobbed, and our swords beaten into ploughshares.
    It demonstrates the general lack of political savvy on that forum, as the risk of a Soviet attack was highest in the eighties, not in the sixties.
     
  8. Well, I was brought up very close to Menwith Hill, so presumably I disappeared in a burst of SS20 induced heat and light on day 1 - if the airburst missile don't get you then the Su-24 Fencer-delivered ground burst will! Oh yeah, and I'd probably have found time to blame the spams between the warning and the big flash. It's their phone tapping centre after all.
     
  9. I'm glad to see that most of us are heading for the hills. Does anyone know where any of those cold-war "Auxiliary" caches are? :D
     
  10. One thing is for sure the chaps on U75 would all have been sent on long holidays to Siberia. One thing the commies don't like is other commies.
     
  11. In the 60,s I would have probably been evaporated by a dose of instant sunshine being poured over the NATO facility by my family home.I later saw the soviet satelite pictures and target data (wow-I can see my house on that!!!)
     
  12. Can't I form a militia and blame the spams? :?
     
  13. Alright which nobhead voted for

    Raise the red flag to welcome your proletarian brothers.

    Someone did. Own up who wasit? We wont harm you, merely hand you over to the new communist branch of arrse (see big jock and fridgemagnet for details :twisted: )

  15. i think you will find that most british communist at the time would have fought the Russians, as they are British first and communist second.
    my uncle was a communist and has served in the army with distinction. that would have been his view.
