Keeping in touch during the lay off?

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. Ideas?

    Last Tues every month @ TAC

    ArmyNET

    Telephone/text messages

    Facebook

    Arrse

    Frequent events, visits to Museums, AT, socials, etc
     
  2. Meet up in the park, late at night, in green kit?

    We could order pizza, get drunk and piss in each others sleeping bags. It'll be just like old times.
     
  3. Do you buy your own soap or get issue? :D
     
  4. My unit is meeting up last parade night of every month. I may see if anyone wants to do anything else, maybe a bit of walking on a weekend with a pub lunch.
     
  5. or you could check facebook

    Just because they are not paying does not mean you should not still play at soldiers by looking after the kit - its a vocation you know :wink:

    Subsidised bars usually cover TA social needs.
     
  7. You could always sell the Big Issue, or lose weight you obese hobbyists.

    If you miss the part timer stuff so much why not join the police specials?

    At least then you could still be below average in your skillsets albeit in a different (ill fitting) uniform.

    Regards,
     
  8. Isn't that what you normally do on a working weekend? :D
     
  9. You could all go for runs in the park together.

    Do a bit of phys at the local leisure centre.
     
  10. Hm, early days yet but current trend indicates, not sure what to call them yet, 'the union' will say no.
     
  11. No - we get paid double time for working a weekend - try when your working for Maccy Ds or doing your security guard job when you get out
     
  12. Sadly, I'm not qualified to do either, guess it's the TA for me
     
  13. Apparently that's gone mate - Try saying Big Issue anyone?
     
  14. I will just take the pension and chill I reckon
     
  15. a good option but it never goes far. You can only watch so many Trisha shows anyway
