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. Just finished reading Spike Milligan's "Mussolini, his part in my downfall". In it Milligan refers to different types of trucks used in his regt (56 Heavy, RA), namely "G trucks" and "monkey trucks". Can anyone tell me what these are?
  2. Maybe Golf and Mike trucks , Normal identically equipped sigs wagons used as rebro and the likes normally at FDC/Bde level they would leapfrog step up and main.

    Not sure if it applied in the days of string and bean cans mind.....
  3. You might well be right, I should have added that Milligans role was that of signaller.

  4. Dont worry, we can still be friends........ :wink:
  5. George and Monkey trucks were in fact the recce and signals trucks in a battery - now Golf and Mike of course.
