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. I see the Deputy Prime Minister has declared to the House of Commons that he is "Demob Happy!" Just shows you how little he knows about the Forces or he would have known that the term "Demob Happy" is a derogatory one meaning someone who is a complete w a n k e r, not pulling his weight and skiving off at every opportunity! Or did he? FFS! - an honest politician :thumleft:
  2. I tihnk Prescott knows wxactly what it means. Don't you demob from the Merchant Navy too?

    And in his time, he'd have worked with plenty of wartime ex-Navy
  3. Lets hope the rest a Bliar's lot get the same feelings!
  4. Catering Corps, presumably.
