Military Bands in Earplugs

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. It's going to be interesting seeing the wacky designs for the Full-Dress ear-duffs ...

    Linky

     
  2. Lieutenant Colonel Bob Meldrum, principal director of music for the Army, admitted that performing music whilst wearing hearing protection was "not without its challenges"


    Don't you just love good old British understatement?
     
  3. Oh FFS professional orchestral musicians have been using linear attenuation earplugs for years. (You try sitting in front of the brass section.)

    Best ones are custom fitted and not cheap but a lot better than going deaf.

    Will the punters be issued with these ear plugs? We hired a small ensemble from the Band of The Coldstream Guards for a soiree in west London last year. I had to stuff wet napkins into my ears. The Memsahib went nuts and bit a waitress from Poland.

    Is there no protection from these social misfits from this EU of which you speak?
