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. Given that female officers are allowed to wear ear studs, is it time that those "rights" were provided for male officers too?
  2. No. Thanks. Unless you are pretty enough to be at least 8/10 in stockings and suspenders. Then we can just throw you to the RM.
  3. You'll be wanting to wear skirts and tights on parade next
  4. Only in the CRABS
  5. This is a perfect example of how out of touch the Army really is - I think men stopped wearing ear rings when the eighties finished... :?

    I've a question - should the Army try to actively recruit more Punk Rockers?

    :D :D
  6. It was quite common when I was serving

  7. So then you can look like Christiano feckin' Ronaldo............. i.e. like a ponce.
  8. Hey, don't knock it.... etc. :D
  9. Tampax anyone?
  10. A fanny cigar? Why not.

  12. And Warrant Officers! :D One for the Academy Sergeant Major :lol: :lol:
  13. When and where was it ever enshrined that someone had a 'right' to wear an ear-ring? Fed-up hearing about people's 'rights'; what about the obligations and duties of an officer not to look like a chav on parade - what's next, regimental bling?
  14. Horrific as earring-wearing is as a pathetic sign of rebellion, it is now done because it looks 'good' [shudders]. As one of the skills of being an officer is good judgement, surely this should never come up as an issue? I remember on my first day in the OTC when the RSM spoke to everyone in the mess about standards. To quote [through the mists of time] 'you aren't allowed to wear jewellry because of health and safety, not because it looks gay'. His tone left the assembled undergrads in no uncertain terms that the main health and saftey issue linked to jewellry would be the tear marks when the RSM ripped it off. Happy, happy, memories.
  15. What a stupid thread! :roll:
