Mess graces

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. I know this has been covered before, but I was after a grace which mentions our comrades in afghanistan, Iraq, etc. If anyone knows of one that would be great, cheers.
  2. Make one up in an appropriate style and submit it to the Badge for approval.

    If done in the right tone he/she can't fail to be impressed.
  3. Try saying one in Latin. It has the advantage that few people will know what you're talking about:

    Benedic, Domine, creaturam istam cerevisae,
    quam ex adipe frumenti producere dignatus es.
    Per Christum Dominum nostrum.

    Which roughly translates as:

    Bless, O Lord, this beer-creature,
    that You have pleased to bring forth from the sweet grain.
    Through Christ Our Lord.

  4. Our Comrades, who art in combat,
    hallowed be thy call sign.
    Thy fire support will come,
    thy will be extracted,
    on earth as it is in the headquarters’
    Give us this day our daily ammunition supply.
    And forgive us our trespasses against the Geneva convention,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into an ambush,
    but deliver us from evil (The labour party).
    For thine is the bayonet, the grenade and the bullet. for ever and ever. Amen
  5. Like it - Mind if i steal it?
  6. That is excellent mate, are you the author or have you plagiarised it from someone else?
  7. A bit OT, and blantantly stolen:

    Our beer,
    Which art in barrels,
    Thy will be drunk,
    at home as it is in the pub,
    Forgive us our daily spillage,
    And those who spillage against us,
    Lead us not into winetasting,
    And deliver us from alcopops,
    For ours is the bitter,
    The spirits and the larger,
    Forever and ever, barmen
  8. Like that one, can I use it at a function coming up, a small fee payable to AA will be on its way. :pissed:
  9. Grace doesn't have to be witty or humerous. If I was wanting to give a grace which mentioned comrades in operatinal theaters then I would go for simple and heartfelt. Something along the lines of :

    Lord, while we sit here enjoying this good food and drink let us not forget our comrades in combat and pray for their safe return. Amen.
  10. Surely we should thing of others of other faiths and not have grace at all.
  11. try somewhere else for your biting attempts you are not very good at it.
    keep trying and I will just bin all your posts in here.
  12. Crack on!
  14. c_c, can we get him binned? :evil:
  15. Obviously they didnt collect all the lunatics from the assylum today, what are you doing up still Heid are you on grave stag?
