When all you potential/wannabe squaddies leave the ACIO after your initial interview, does the warped and disgruntled recruiting Sgt recommend Arrse as a source of useful information and further reading?

If so, that will explain the number of bone questions some of you lot come out with!

To Spaz,

Go for lyposuction IMMEDIATELY. It will hurt and you may be out of it for a few months but it'll be worth it.

Apparently, recruiters like this, cause it shows you have the determination and willpower to do anything that it takes to make it.


Whattya waitin for fatty, get down the surgery ASAP!

Godspeed, ta ta.

Is it true that you get Grumpy old Victor Meldrew ancient characters in the REME. :bigsmurf: (shit not only did I give T_M's PERSEC away I gave mine away aswell)

Dont worry turms-r-us we shave and brand all Gwars when they arrive in their first unit :wink:

Ive been windsurfing at the CESSAC in Dhekelia when I was posted there and knew a bloke called Frank, so they did tell the truth.
I told my applicants the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth when I was recruiting. (uncrossing fingers)

Not that recruiters stretch the truth or anything but when i first applied i was told amongst other things:

1. Millions had been spent on upgrading helles barracks ( there was a new gurka wing, but my nepalese is worse than my welsh)
2. The food would be "fantastic" and plentiful.
3. Drill is as easy as it looks and could be picked up in no time.

Oh how he must have laughed.

I know mate, you cant buy anything cheap in the NAAFI anymore, besides some of the single women behind the bar :wink:

Ive never lied to anyone I recruited, unfortunately we never knew that Iraqistan would be escalating in this way. There are about 6 lads in my new unit I enlisted whilst Recruiting and Im sure theres a plot ongoing, I watched my back on bonfire night :( . Thank god Im getting near to resettlement.
