New No. Twos - Squezing into

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by NVIS, Nov 12, 2006.

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. After just squezing into my 2's again (seriously it's an honour at this time of year) is it worth ordering a new set? or shall I wait for the new issue?
    When is this going to happen, shall I hold my breath?

    After Mrs utg watched me squeeze into mine (strange how they seem to shrink in the wardrobe!) and then saw how my even wider next-door-neighbour looked in his, I am being put on to half-rations.

    Apparently, this will:

    1. Save money (not taking No 2s to tailors).
    2. Save money (less food going down gullet).
    3. Stop her feeling embarassed because I'm wearing tighter clothing than her.

    My defence of "But, honey, if I go to the gym more often, they'll be tight because I'm more muscular" was met with laughter and the reply "Good".
