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. Marvellous stuff. Makes me want to grow a handlebar moustache and wear my cap at a jaunty angle. Chocks away Ginger!

    "…One of the founding squadrons of the Royal Air Force? I think you'll find it was one of the founding Squadrons of the Royal Flying Corp you bounder!

    Fly safe, II (AC) … :headbang:
  6. Why does the RAF doing it's job constitute news?
  7. Because this is an extremely rare example of the sharp end of the RAF. The other 99% of blunty, unionised, politically correct, socially inferior lineswine in serge blue that raise barriers and pluck cats from trees whilst writing transgender policies can poke right off.

  8. I thought that the sharp end of the RAF was the RAF Regt. Wah shield up!

    Are we in the NAAFI? NO ... OK ;-)

    The RAF has an enormous 'tail' to put jets in the air. Barrier lifting is just a small part of that complex process.

    OMG, I bit. :-(
  12. YofS, you're teasing me, surely? I was always taught that the RAF Regt are elite light infanty and our premier force protection specialists.
  13. I still think its a mistake to launch CAS missions without achieving air superiority over the Taliban Air Force.
  14. I had the privilege of being the Operations Officer in II Sqn [Army co-Operation] RAF back in the 1980's, when they were based at Laarbruch, and it's something I'm proud to say.

    It was I who coined the word T-POT for the HAS in which we cowered during the frequent TACEVALS. It stands for That Place Over There, BTW, not that any of you lot give the square root of SFA.

    I wish them, every one of them, all the very best, and a safe return back home when the job has been done.

  15. I think that you are being unfair - this is the Army Rumour Service website not the PPRuNe Military Aircrew Foum so of course we are going to take the piss out of the RAF. I don't think that anyone on here would want any member of II (AC) Sqn to come to any harm whatsoever whilst on their HERRICK tour - I certainly don't - but I do reserve the right to indulge in some banter with the crabs.
