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. Hi guys I didn't know there was a Sappers forum so I've just copied and pasted here my posting on the other thread.

    OK guys I've been lurking for months now and enjoyed all yer prattle so decided to post. I don't know if its normal to introduce myself but thought it might help me to settle the nerves.
    Don't want to be known as a Walt (Its taken me weeks to work out what that was). Anyway in for a penny 'cause theres no pounds to spare.
    I did do a little time in the army but not a lot. Got called up as a National serviceman and then enlisted for 3 years because the money was better and I could choose what I wanted to go in. I wanted to be a gentleman of the Royal Engineers and National servicemen got put anywhere so it was worth it. I served King and country (Yes there was a king on the throne then but only for a short time then HM the Queen took over.) After the statatury 16 weeks sapper training I was posted to Minden in Germany and then for a while to Berlin. In Berlin we were holding back the Bolshevic Whores. So thats my short sharp history don't bollock me for coming all over unnessesary cause I can get pissed off with the best of em. Good to be amonst friends ..............I hope.
  2. Welcome aboard Moonraker, as you will see from the banter in the Sapper forum, nothing has changed from the days when you served.

    Once a Sapper always a Sapper.

    Hi there, I'm not a sapper and more of a wannabe than a walt, but I don't think from what you've written you appear at all waltish. If you added you were 9th Ind. seconded to THEM and practiced demolitions insurgency in the East popping deep into the DDR, then perhaps ;) ...but you didn't.
