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:

    I know it's the Scum but I feel an outrage coming on:

    Edit cause it's early & I need caffine.
  2. I'm not actually surprise .... once again the double standards get applied to servicemen. Don't see them cancelling too manyparties by large groups of single civvies do you!!?? :x

    As an ex Mick I only wish I was closer to the Shot and able to lay on a real good hoolie for the boys. Welcome home lads ... some of us don't despise the uniforms you wear and we wore!!!
  3. Thats because single male civies have more sense than to have a party where women are not invited. :twisted:

    Already dug in so nyah nyah.

    Does this mean that the dismal Browne, Twigg and Ainsworth will stop attending military events since their unsavoury presence presumably makes them political?
  5. well we can always live in hope!!!! :twisted:
  6. Would they cancel a party for gay soldiers?
  7. What on earth would give them that idea? :D

    Surely the Guards can find another venue.

  8. Heaven forfend!!! I'm outraged!! You mean there are gay men in the Army???

    Well, I'm going through a phase of apoplectic rage right now, in fact, I'm purple of the face, and my cranial veins are fit to burst, so they are!

    Like has already been said, if I had a venue and was up that way, they'd all be welcome. It is a fcuking disgrace!

    As for 'Best Parties Ever' - all the Uk regiments should blacklist them immediately, and find a better company to provide the parties - there must be a lot out there who would do a better job and who'd love the business.
  10. I went into a public-'ouse to get a pint o' beer,
    The publican 'e up an' sez, "We serve no red-coats here."
    The girls be'ind the bar they laughed an' giggled fit to die,
    I outs into the street again an' to myself sez I:
    O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, go away";
    But it's "Thank you, Mister Atkins", when the band begins to play,
    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
    O it's "Thank you, Mister Atkins", when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
    They gave a drunk civilian room, but 'adn't none for me;
    They sent me to the gallery or round the music-'alls,
    But when it comes to fightin', Lord! they'll shove me in the stalls!
    For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, wait outside";
    But it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide,
    The troopship's on the tide, my boys, the troopship's on the tide,
    O it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide.

    Yes, makin' mock o' uniforms that guard you while you sleep
    Is cheaper than them uniforms, an' they're starvation cheap;
    An' hustlin' drunken soldiers when they're goin' large a bit
    Is five times better business than paradin' in full kit.
    Then it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, 'ow's yer soul?"
    But it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll,
    The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
    O it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll.

    etc. etc. etc.


  11. plus ca change, plus c'est la meme-chose!!!! :x
  12. **** em, take their business somewhere else...

    I'm sure there's some ex-squaddies somewhere out there that run events businesses and would do a much better job

    I have to laugh, although it makes me wonder why they accepted it in the first place?
  13. Anyone here actually surprised that this has happened?
  14. From my experience there are much better nights out to be had than "Best Parties Ever", which usually consists of a poorly decorated marquee in field just outside Basingstoke full of hairdressers and trainee mechanics.
