New Crab TV Advert!!

#1
Have you seen it??!! They do ask for it don't they, the RAF should cringe at their latest recruiting drive!

What kind of message are they passing on to future crabs? We all know the aircrew are worse than this already, but this just encourages the ground crew to wimp out too. All I can say is thank god the aircraft are no longer made of wood otherwise we would never get anywhere! (Its bad enough that the helos are made of paper (they must be, why can't they fly in the rain?))
The RAF Reg should have their shovels taken off them to lower casualty rates!! :roll:

The RAF are indeed cringeing at the advert in question!

Regrettably, I understand that the next one in the series is just as bad!

Regards,
M2 :oops:

Well we don't wander round garrison towns battering the snot out of anyone not wearing our regimental t-shirt! How can Army say we should not have shovels for the RAF Regt lads? Pot. Kettle. Over.
We do a job. We don't spend all our time training to do it - we do it every day. Aircraft are technically advanced pieces of equipment and needs lots of loving care and attention. We are good at it, hence why the numbers are as they are. Hence why the Apache would be flying if it had not been given to the Brown Jobs.
We are also chatting up the top totty in the higher class bars instead of battering our best mate in the NAAFI. :D

M_C_H, as you are obviously unaware, shovels are made with wooden shafts and as a result, cause splinters, something you crabs cannot cope with. If you would like me to explain anything else about kit that you don't understand as you have never used it, just ask. :lol:

When you say top totty you are also refering to the soap dodging student types with whom the RAF seem to surround themselves, as they have the same level of maturity. 8)

Wee chap.

Quite right. I did rather well at school and do not have to resort to manual labour in order to get paid. Hence not knowing the difference between an entrenching tool and a shovel.

We check in - not dig in. Any fool can be uncomfortable.

The field. Either a rather spiffing magazine, although full of Cav Officer types, or the unkempt area behind the patio. Trenches? Are we planting vegetables or something?

Soap dodging student types? Ooohh noooo. University of Life chap meself. Prefer the well bred filly sort - tattoos spelled correctly and NOT wearing a Regt sweatshirt with baby puke down one sleeve!

Waiter! Another couple of large G&Ts please - oh - and a bottle of Buckie for the Wee chap with his face pressed against the window! Put them on my room, please.
:D

(45,000 bods in the RAF and only 4500 aircrew, what do the other 40,500 do??)
Very good question Wee Face! Apparently a survey of world airforces shows that the RAF has more personnel per aircraft than any other airforce in the world by miles!

Seems to me that MCH is confusing his idea that crabs 'don't rough it' with the truth.... they just can't hack it. You may have thought you joined the military but no.... you ended up in the RAF!

MCH,

Does this mean that Dorothy Perkins are now the new supplier of a daring new range of Avant-Garde Parkas and drainpipe troosers to CrabAir?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/3393485.stm


The Ministry of Defence has failed in its battle to stop clothing retailers using the red, white and blue target symbol.
Arcadia Group, owners of Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and Burton, went to war with the MoD after it tried to register the roundel as a trademark for RAF-related clothing.

The high street fashion group argued the roundel was brought into the public domain by the Mod movement of the 1960s.

On Tuesday, the Patent Office told BBC News Online it had rejected the MoD's application

Self-loading cargo.

Curious how the paras (last major operational drop - 1956) criticise the RAF when they, of all pongos, would be somewhat stuffed without them. Still, regular synaptic activity seems not to be a requirement for them. Oh, and remind me who teaches them to parachute(and, incidentally, has the better parachute display team) - why, the RAF, of course!

The Crabs might live the life of luxury but what excuse do they have for their C&A Mess kit?

MCH,
I must say that it makes a change for me not being the only Crab defending the Service responsible for applying the nations first choice of power projection! :wink:

However, in the interests of fair play, I must take issue with your suggestion that the Brown jobs can be blamed for the Apache saga. The thing is designed to be operated in the field, and if a US Army Louisiana in-bred retard can keep the thing flying, I certainly think that the AAC and REME can operate it (as long as they purchase sufficient black boxes!). The AH-64 is with the correct service in my opinion. It's just a pity that the wider Army are not too switched on to what it can do for their doctrine and tactics.

OFO

The Crabs might live the life of luxury but what excuse do they have for their C&A Mess kit?
It amuses us greatly when the British Army comment upon RAF dress and uniform! Have you chaps looked at some of the fancy dress that passes as Mess Kit for certain regiments?!!! Spray on trousers, spurs, 1960's ankle boots!!! Give me my C&A outfit anytime!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I will now retire gracefully from what promises to be another entertaining pongo v Crab thread!!!!

Regards,
M2

You retreat too quickly MM!!

Last time I was in a joint mess, I kept asking the Station Commander to fill my glass up as I thought he was a mess steward. I then clocked he wasn't because he was wearing white socks and a stick on dickey bow.

Glad to see that at least one crab is a bit clued up on the Apache situation!! (Despite the fact that he is a passenger in his place of work and can you claim air miles?)
