Part one orders: Volunteers

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Mighty_doh_nut, Jun 17, 2008.

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. During a conversation with Convoy_Cock this morning, we discussed how extremist organisations accross the globe manage to recruit suicide bombers who will gladly exchange their lives in the name of whatever they believe in.

    We then mentioned how it might occur should the British Army request volunteers for one way missions. Can you imagine a request for volunteers appearing on Part one orders:

    Orderly Officer: Capt Partridge
    Orderly Sgt: S/Sgt otterman
    GD Cmd: Cpl Rushworth
    GD 2i/c: L/cpl butterbot
    QRF: Ptes SMith, Gregson, Stepson, Tucker, Jenkins & Barlymow

    Duty Driver: Pte nob
    Duty Clk: L/Cpl spack

    Duty suicide bombers: TBC

    Duty suicide bombers are to report to Gaurdroom (next to the unloadbay) with highly bulled bomb vests, a stick man will be given to the best turned out and he won't have to die for the cause.


    Would it be done on a volunteer basis, would you push the sprog who is diffy the most kit? Would the guy who's blown his wages on millionaires weekend step up? Would the rest of the blokes dick them (Like the 5000mtres on athletics day) in their absence? Would it be the pad who walked into find his Mrs straddling the duty driver? Would it be the bloke who is 3 days into 28days SUS?

    How would we recruit them? What would make you volunteer?
  2. Would a sick chit exempt you?
  4. We could recruit a 'Forlorn Hope' from those in the cells to carry out suicide missions. If they survived they could be given a full pardon!!!
  5. a certain soldier springs to mind as a candidate but trusting that quark brained missing link with a bomb vest no fucking way.
    as with most squaddies you'd nominate for suicide bombing off the top of your head the idea of handing them a live suicide vest fills you with terror.
    unless your senior enough so that you can nominate enough useless mouths that you can retire to a safe distance to watch the resulting fireworks :twisted:
  6. What would make me volunteer is the Scottish Fcuking, "Parliament."

    I know this ain't Current Affairs, but this is their latest wheeze (Clicky)

    Remember, while you roll on the floor fcuking laughing, that you got the Smoking Ban too.
  7. surviving a breech into a fort full of frog musket men is one thing but strapping a vest full of TNT and going bang????
  8. Needs must!
  9. I detect a slight flaw here,
    presuming the MoD are tendering out for the cheapest thus most useless/crappiest vest then the matter of self detonation may be a bit hit and miss. I cant see them shelling out for the Mk II al-Qaeda special or the more proven Hammass unisex freesize l. Knowing our luck it'll be the whoflundung chineese fire cracker and fried rice Tee shirt.

  10. With an explosion powerful enough to kill the wearer and thus fulfill its purpose as a suicide vest but not strong to inflict injury on anyone around it.
  11. Or bought from BAe after a 15 development and £112,000,000 spent, and it still won't work

    You sick bastards. I nearly swamped myself and my bed reading this I was laughing so hard.

    Thinking back I know EXACTLY the sort of guy you mean when you say that is all they are fit for but HOLY CHRIST HE'S GOT A BOMB.

    Guy on my TA recruit cadre. I gave him the nickname Pte Midas cos everything he touched without exception turned to sh1t. The guy could make a kevlar helmet look slept in creased. The nickname stuck so well that when the Coy. OC came to meet the recruits he said "You must be Pte Midas then."
  13. Might be able to sell it to some of the more dim bulbs if it was dressed up as a " Dirty Dozen " adventure/lark, thus holding out the possibilty of coming through ' unscathed' as it were ala Charlie Bronson and Lee Marvin, and a phony cameraman went part way to ' capture the exploits' for the folks back home.

    Might take a page from the jihad notebook and send out a lad on a ' beer run' then remote detonate when he realizes they forgot to give him any cash to pay for the bottles.
  14. It would be interesting to see if regiments were true to character in their selection of vestmen...Guards would put forward their regimental criminals, Gunners keen young Lance Bombardiers and Cavalry the officer who was so thick, the other officers noticed...
  15. It wouldn't matter if you got dicked for it....

    Some skint jock orphan with a penchant for booze and casual violence, with more tattoos and days behind the guard than brain cells would do it...

    "fae fifty quid, and you do my next one big man?".......sold.
