Nicknames that seem to be dying out

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. Has anybody noticed that good old Army nicknames seem to be dying out. For example:

    Nipper - for the vertically challenged.

    Can anybody else think of any others?
     
  2. Been looking for Topper Brown for the last few years.
     
  3. Soap dodger for the non wasps.
     
  4. The newest nig used to be referred to as "Cuntybollocks!" until he mastered the twin mysteries of brew making and brushing up at which point he would be promoted to "Cuntface!"

    Anyone with a dodgy: voice, diction or accent would soon be known as "the soup dragon" throughout the unit.

  6. Are you still allowed to call irish soldiers paddy?
     
  7. I,ve been waiting for the newest Epic from our in house chronicler, but I fear he may have been deprived of subject matter, ie the resident lezzer has departed or his mother in law has departed this life, either that or his dog has been put down for despoiling neighbourhood bitches and his local gasthaus has barred him for furgling the landlords hausfrau, either way I will wait patiently untill futher missives are penned.

  9. I suppose referring to your indigenous swarthy staff on camp as Gollies would be frowned upon today?
     
  10. Why is Niffy used for the name Hill? I knew about 4 ' Niffy Hills' but haven't got a clue why they were called that.
    Cunts the lot of 'em
     
  11. Kipper - spineless c*nt
    Fonc - friend of no c*nt
    5 watt - not too bright
