Just how big was 14 Int anyway ?

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. Judging by recent events it must have been the largest unit in the Army at one point. In the last couple of months 3 of 4 "ex soldiers" who have tried to engage me in conversation managed to let slip within seconds of meeting me that they had served with "14" while "over the water" or some such tripe. What the F&ck is wrong with just saying " I did a couple of years in the REME" or whatever ? Fair play to the other guy who admitted to 3 years as a glorified petrol pump attendent in RAOC....
     
  2. TBH, not everyone could get on the balcony.
     
  3. You're right there - it must have been the biggest fucking unit in the world. If every walting fool was actually in the units they claimed to be a member of, the bill for Para Pay would be 10 times the UK's Gross Domestic Product & you wouldn't be able to walk for 50 feet without bumping into an undercover "operator" of some sort.

  6. You want to try going into some expat pubs on the Costa Blanca. It seems everyone you talk to was either one of "them" or an ex-driver for the Krays.
     
  7. It wasn't that big when I was in it, but I can't talk about that.
