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. Excuse the probably inaccurate quote, but am I missing something here? How does the Nat West situation affect troops being paid in Afghan - do they rely on an ATM, or is he just blagging his Missus that he has no readies, and she posts out packets of dollars for him to spend?
     
  2. Sounds more like she is pissed off that she can't rape his bank account while he's deployed (as per pad SOPs)
     
  3. thought the same when i heard that this morning...

    just comes across as some whining woman using the fact her husband is away in afghan and she hasnt had any money in her account!..
     
  4. A small edit to reflect reality.

  6. or he is just about to return to UK, has changed his bank details and is going to spend all his hard earned dosh in Vegas before she gets her mitts on it
     
  7. i concur with your addition!...
     
  8. I can already see the TV adverts 5 years hence......
