Outing a walt.

#1
Im working with this guy who reckons he is ex Royal Irish. Thing is, his stories are getting a bit hard to take. They range from being a sniper to sas, to medic . Basically you name it , this guy says he has done it.

He wears about 5 ribbons including one for gallantry.

Alarm bells started ringing when we were exposed to pepper spray and he curled up in a ball and started crying. Now , this didnt seem like a British infanteer.

Anyway, any of you guys Royal Irish who can vouch whether this guy is gen or full of shite. He says he has only just left.

Oh yeah, he also wears Canadian para wings but no British ones.

On a final note, he plays the bugle and loves drill. Could he be an ex bandsman ?

Or just punch him on the (more than) off chance he is lying.

If he's telling the truth, You'l feel it.

If not, he will.


Win win.

i have been out of the 1st Bn for near on 20 years now so names and stuff will mean nothing..

ASK HIM ABOUT THE REGIMENTS HISTORY..

we were formed from the last 3 remaining north irish infantry regiments..

THE INNISKILLEN FUSILIERS..
THE ULSTER RIFLES..
THE IRISH FUSILIERS..

every member of the regiment knows that..

OR ASK WHAT THE REGIMENTAL FOOT NUMBERS ARE..

27TH 83RD AND 87TH

if he cant answer any of them..

PUNCH THE ****..

BETTER STILL GO TO THE REGIMENTAL WEBSITE AT www.royalirishrangers.co.uk

Look his name up in the Gazette.

Ask him where he was standing on the Iranian Embassy balcony. I'll let you know if he was next to me or not.

dont forget to include the ulster defence regiment amalgamated into the royal irish in early 1990's. i was r irish for several years. he may have been a bugler in the regiment. i dont suppose he has told you what batallion he was in

An usual 'walt' indeed. No disrespect to the excellent regiment he claims to have served in, but doesn't he know 'walts' are ALWAYS Parachute Regiment. As someone said the 'what was your number' question normally reveals all. If it is not reeled off in a second, he's a 'walt'.

V new, so please excuse daft question, have looked it up but not found the answer. Walt = pretendy soldier?
 
#11
Spot on Charity - welcome to ARRSE. Walts are a sort of "Breakfast of Champions" for most of our readers. Hours of endless fun and indignation!

my alarm bells are ringing - why the f*** were you exposed to pepper spray?

Also, I wouldn't exactly be jumping with joy with that shyte burning my eyes, ears and nose

Ask him what the difference is between Tattoo and Last Post
One was a Russki or something lesbian shoolgirl duo who had a one-hit wonder. The other is what we got today before tomorrow's strike.

Walt = Walter Mitty
And no, it isn't rhyming slang (usually used in the plural), but I have heard it used thus.

Regimental history anyone can read up on, ask him were the last deployment was in the dust, how many went, and how many brave souls did not come back. Ask him his RSMs surname. Ask him when as part of airmobile did he do P Company. Did he jump? Weres his wings? Blue wings or green and black? Ask him his DZ Flash colours.
Feck it, give me his name and ill find out.
PS if he says he was in any other Bn than the 1st he was not General service as the others as from next month are resigned to the history books and have served in NI from the forming of the new Regiment.
PS Buglars were machinegun Platoon

... Walt is a contraction of Walter Mitty, who was a character who, despite living a normal, some could claim mundane, life, often retreats to a dream world where he is something extraordinary i.e. a successful pilot, a soldier etc...

Is this wrong?

As an ex forces 1970’s under that last Labour lot. I am amazed by the number of inferior people, that are mentioned on this site, who have to boost their little egos by inventing a glamorous career in the Armed Forces. Even more annoying are people who have served and bull up their service, having served Queen and Country is that not enough.

Should we not adopt the US laws, get caught walting then it is pokey time, and lots of publicity!

Aye, that chap who actually served on 9 Sqn RE who then started walting as an ex-3 Para guy is a little sad.

Having worked with 9 Sqn lads on a few big loggie exercises I can't see why he'd not feel proud to have been one of their number as they are a great bunch of lads who know their stuff.

Lower down the walter scale but still quite sad are the serving lads with empty left breasts who ask to borrow medals off you because they are going to a wedding and want some help with their quest of bedding a bridesmaid. :roll:
