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. How do you know there were no ID checks or Guardroom?
     

  2. The driver was concerned at the sailor’s drunken state and spoke to Ministry of Defence police officers on his way out of the base.

    That sparked a search for a man which ended in the rescue.


    Hopefully the Policewoman, recieves a commendation.
     
  3. No and no.
     
  4. How did our inebriated chum get past the guardroom and into the main base in his taxi then?
     
  5. It's really rather simples…

    Taxi stops at gate, driver and passenger flash ID, gate gives the driver a vehicle pass and in he goes.
     
  6. Christ, so there are all sorts of taxi drivers cutting around Portsmouth Naval Base?
     
  7. No but his Ipod got wet & is fucked.
     
  8. You've never got a taxi onto camp before? It's not exactly the most shocking revelation to ever come out of defence, is it?

    I've even heard wild rumours of Tesco delivery vans and even fast food deliveries being allowed onto camps.
     
  9. It was the late 90's when I was in and security was generally quite slack but they never let taxis or fast food deliveries past the gate - it used to really annoy the guard commanders on the night shift because they'd have to ring the Duty Room and tell us when our indian food had arrived.

    Stanley Fort in HK, the fecking bus used to come through camp!

    Pizza deliveries at night were often stopped by guard, checked to see contents, if wanted inside guardroom, never it made it past gate!
     
  11. Well you do now. In Tidworth VCP there is a list of approved Taxi companies that are allowed onto camp...
